i dont think ive seen one person mention the fact that smoltz is going to look awfully weird in a different uniform other than the one with the tomahawk on the front. while i've hated seeing him pitch against the phils for the past 20 years, im going to miss him. big smoltz fan here. ;-D

dont know if they would do a true six man rotation, but this definitely makes the bullpen very good. papelbon-masterson-ramirez-okajima-delcarmen

Chances are at least one of the starters will be hurt at any given point in the season. Lester and Dice-K are the only guys there not to have had serious injury problems in the last year.

wasn't dice-k on the DL at some point last year? He definitely didn't throw 200 innings (167) :-?

he was but it was a minute injury to limit his IP (something that was a problem for him in 2007). I love these signing to death, though. Baldelli especially. Smoltz definitly helps round out the roatation, and if Penny grabs a spot Smoltz is more than reliable in the bullpen.

Dice K didn't have 200 innings because he was only lasting 5 innings a game... :-t

Yeah you can't throw 200 IP when you're at 100 pitches in the 5th inning :-o

Love the Rocco signing, would take a healthy (enough to play) him over Coco any day.

I am really not sad to see Smoltz go... }:-)

I'm stunned that the Braves would let him go like this though over $2M. Liberty Media is a joke and (I can't believe I'm about to say this but...) Braves fan base deserves better than these schmucks.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Supposedly the Boston incentives were easier to meet than the Atlanta incentives.
