This News Is A Drag

It is being reported this morning that Atlanta Braves pitcher John Smoltz will undergo season ending shoulder surgery. We grew up watching Smoltz make a name for himself. He went to school where we went to school, and was impressing pro scouts on the baseball field that was literally a baseballs throw away from the house I grew up in. His career numbers are impressive (only pitcher in history w/ 300 wins and 150 saves, more than 3000 strikeouts, voted to 8 All Star teams, couple of World Series rings), and the guy is a total class act. Furthermore, he grows a hell of a mustache.
Get well soon Smoltzie!
