Smoltz has taken a L or a ND in 8 games where he's given up 3 runs or fewer and pitched 6.0 innings or more. He's got another ND in a game where he went 5.0 and gave up 3. Along with his 7 wins, that's 16 games where Smoltz has put the Braves in an easy win situation.
I don't know who could replace him in the rotation, but he's extremely valuable as a starter. I'd wager he's more valuable starting than closing.
Let's go O's. Let's go Mets.
