I could have sworn John Smoltz said he wanted to retire a member of the Atlanta Braves.
I could have sworn Smoltz said he loved the city of Atlanta, and that the Braves were the only Major League Baseball team he wanted to play for.
Smoltz was the face of the franchise down in the ATL. A 21-year Atlanta veteran, solid in the community, and known as one of baseball's stand-up guys.
Today, he's a member of the Boston Red Sox. I guess shit happened, and Smoltz changed his mind.
