The other day I was struggling to think how the Braves’ offseason could get any worse. I’ll admit that this development hadn’t occurred to me:
John Smoltz is leaving Atlanta for the most stunning of destinations.
The Boston Red Sox.
Smoltz, 41, is on the verge of signing a one-year, $5.5 million contract with the Red Sox, according to major-league sources.
The deal also will include $4.5 million in incentives, giving Smoltz the chance to earn a total of $10 million, sources said.
If anyone needs me I’ll be over in the corner wishing it was 1995 again.
