Shelby Charles Miller is 6’3″, 215 pounds, 23 years old, and a stud pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals. You would think he’d be difficult to misplace, but he’s noticeably absent from the NLCS, and no mention has been made of him for nearly 2 weeks.
Some have claimed to have seen him warming up in the bullpen, but he hasn’t actually pitched since October 4th. For all we know, the team has shoved another 6’3″ flamethrower into a “Miller 40″ jersey and had him throw 15-20 pitches with a cap covering his eyes. It’s not like the team doesn’t have guys like that growing on trees.
Our sources indicate that the team has quietly sent unknown infielder Ryan Jackson in search of Shelby. Additionally, the geospatial team here at JSF has partnered with ARF to track Shelby’s whereabouts using the RFID chip implanted in his thick skull.
Eyewitness accounts and satellite data indicates that Shelby is headed to Pittsburgh and pushing a rather large doghouse. Even worse, he’s alone, terrified, and bereft of hair product.
Now to locate Ryan Jackson.
UPDATE: St. Louis dairy distributors have kicked the #FindShelby initiative into high gear.
