Time for John Smoltz to retire? I say yes

I've been doing tons of Squawking today. I wrote a piece for The Faster Times on why John Smoltz ought to call it a career. Check it out here.

I was never a big Mike Mussina fan, but I gained a lot of respect and admiration for him over the way he handled the last year of his career. He left on top with a 20-win season, and left the fans wanting more. What a cool way to go!

What do you think? Leave us a comment!

The answer is yes - and that's not based JUST on last night although that was the final nail in the coffin. Apparently the Sox agree since he was just DFA.

I think its nice to see someone go out on top - too bad it doesn't seem to happen too often. I feel bad for Smoltz, but he played the best and the worst with similar results.
