John Smoltz hasn’t made his retirement official, but between accepting the broadcasting job and the following quote, there ain’t no way he’s coming back:
“I think my desire
to come back last year was to show myself I can still play. I proved
that to myself, and I think I’m ready to move on with my life . . . I just don’t miss
playing. I thought I would, but I don’t.”
And with that we can officially close the books on the Doyle Alexander trade. I think the Braves won it.
