St. Louis - Why doesn't Shelby Miller get the same attention as Matt Harvey?

Miller - 5-3, 1.74 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, 65:12 K:BB (9.8 K/9, 2.4 BB/9, 0.5 HR/9)
Harvey - 5-0, 1.93 ERA, 0.83 WHIP, 74:17 K:BB (9.5 K/9, 2.2 BB/9, 0.5 HR/9)

I would be willing to wager in this flimsy and constantly changing trade market, you would often be able to get Miller while giving up less than you would for Harvey. Team context matters over the course of the season as well, and if the skills are equal (or very close to it), Miller definitely over Harvey in that regard.
