Smoltz and the Braves

Well, he's back, he's gone, he's back, and now he's gone again. John Smoltz of the Braves is going under the knife to try to and repair his ailing shoulder and this time it will cost him the rest of the season. Smoltz, after coming back from the DL and blowing his first save, woke up the next morning and felt discomfort in his shoulder and was unavailable to close the next game. This is terrible news for Smoltz owners because of his ability to dominate and give you great accounting numbers that are needed to win a fantasy championship.

As I mentioned in a previous post, CLICK HERE, I suggested owners to sell high on this pitcher because of his age and he was absolutely lights out at the start of the season. Owners need to really understand the concept of selling high and getting a huge return for someone who most likely won't keep up their current pace.

Now, looking at the bullpen situation for the Braves, you can easily see the value for R. Soriano has, again, gone sky high. The ones who dropped Soriano should kick themselves in their ass because he will get the majority of the save opportunities in the 9th for the Braves. M. Acosta will see the set-up duties but also see the occasional save opportunity.

Too bad for Smoltz owners and the season ending surgery.
