What a said day to hear that Smoltz is having season ending surgery. The reality is that this could finally close the books on a wonderful career.
As an Atlanta Braves fan I am somewhat biased, but Smoltz is one of the best pitchers of my generation.
Sad to see that his body is giving up long before his competitiveness wanes.
Special thanks to Doyle Alexander and the Detroit Tigers for making all of this possible.
Best wishes to Smoltz for a speedy recovery!
