Smoltz Collection: 2009 Topps #355

I'm not a fan of posed cards, but this one is pretty good. I hate to say it, but Smoltzie looks good in a Red Sox uniform. It looks much more natural than Glavine ever did in a Mets uniform. (And much more comfortable. Am I the only one who thinks Glavine would have reached 300 18 months earlier if he had stayed a Brave?)

Chris, I feel exactly the same way. If Tom had stayed in Atlanta, he would have wound up more in the Carlton-Sutton territory for his final win count.

I watched Tom pitch a lot when he was a Met and I lost count of how many times ragamuffin defenders like Cliff Floyd and Kaz Matsui kicked away games he had in the bank.
