Anytime someone in their 40s has season ending surgery, you've got to wonder if that's it. He already missed one entire season (2000) came back as a closer and solidified his Hall of Fame career.
Part of me hopes he doesn't come back. Glavine and Maddux have hinted they might hang them up after this year. How cool would it be to see all three make the Hall of Fame at the same time?
So I hope John Smoltz arranges his career over things I find cool years before they happen!
