If Smoltz is moved back into the rotation how will that affect his fantasy value? Will he be a top 10 starter or just another good pitcher? I would hate to loose his value as a closer myself.

Hard to say. It really depends on how the transition would go. It's possible that he pulls a Woody Williams (Great start, but steadily gets tired toward the end) or he could get stronger as the year progresses. It's a gamble.

i don't think he'll be great, but 15 wins and a 3.75-4.50 era sounds reasonable.
