St. Louis may be in baseball withdrawal, but the New York Times put Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller in the headlines after his Missouri wedding to Amy Peters.

The story starts with a dig at the Cardinals, who left Miller in the bullpen during the 2013 World Series against the Boston Red Sox. Peters -- now Amy Miller -- was there to comfort him when he never got on the mound, according to the 1,400-word story.

"She would remind me that I was good and that there was some reason unknown to us why I wasn't pitching," Miller told the New York Times.

Miller proposed the day after baseball season, on the Jacks Fork River about 190 miles from St. Louis, his new wife posted online. His fiancee-to-be was grasping him so tight as they walked along a candlelit path that Miller had to ask her to let go so he could drop to one knee, according to the couple's wedding site.

The nuptials were a Cardinals affair. Rival pitchers Joe Kelly and Lance Lynn attended, Kelly as a groomsman and Lynn as a guest, according to the New York Times. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny blessed the reception's buffet dinner, and chaplain Rev. Darrin Patrick officiated the ceremony.

The couple married November 16 at the bride's family's resort in Eminence, a Missouri town of about 600.

I felt like they should've put Miller in instead of Lynn. Cardinals would've had a better chance of winning it all

Shelby should have been given a chance.. Especially in the last game.

The regular season actually ended 9/29, not 9/5. And since we have the Cardinals, it didn't end there ;)

Think he was giving an example of her support, and they put their spin on it

Think this is the New York Times making this a bigger deal than it is.

So glad all you fair weather fans want to see him gone. Morons. He should have been used. Reasons unknown to even matheny apparently. Everyone just needs to shut up about this story.

Bad feelings will relieve him of the uniform. Perhaps to a less exalted team.

The man admitted to arm fatigue late in the season and he exceeded his innings limit. I'm sure he's frustrated he didn't get the ball, but he's the future of the rotation. I wouldn't call him a cry baby, but a competitor. Of course he's upset he didn't get to pitch in the post season and World Series. NYT did well spinning in controversy. Congrats on your wedding.
