John Smoltz: DFA'd

The Boston Red Sox have designated John Smoltz for assignment today after his poor performance against the New York Yankees last night. The 42 year old Hall of Fame candidate could never find a groove and get his rhythm this year. Junichi Tazawa has been called up from Pawtucket to replace him on the roster.

It's about time. I got to my breaking point waiting for Smoltz to come around too. He deserves to be a hall of famer when his time comes, but this season was pathetic for him.

I wish he would have pitched like that in the minors so the Sox would not have had to suffer through his attempted comeback.
