Got Smoltz?

Well now, a little bit of festive season cheer, finally, for Red Sox fans. With all due respect to Joshua Bard, the news that it appears John Smoltz might sign with the Sox is the best news we Boston fans have had in a while.

ESPN are reporting that Smoltz is 'on the verge of' a deal with the Red Stockings.

How Boston would use Smoltz is unclear by design, the Sox always try to stockpile as much pitching as possible going into spring training, and this is part of that tactic.

Braves fans appear none too happy that Smoltz is apparently being allowed walk by Atlanta:
''With almost none of the Braves' boatloads of money spent so far, I'm pretty dissapointed that Frank Wren couldn't bring Smolzie back. Regardless, Smoltz has done more than enough for the Braves over his career and if this report is true, all I can say is good luck John!''

Meanwhile the Boston Globe chips in on Smoltz and the possibility that Rhode Island's own Rocco Baldelli is also about to sign on the dotted line.
