    Smoltz impressed by Bucholz

    Thanks Theo for being patient with and grooming young talent and then signing them to reasonable long term deals. Very shrewd. The Sox have the deepest pitching staff in baseball by far. 8 potential solid starters and 8 potential solid relievers. Those who wanted to dump players like lester, lowrie, masterson, ellsbury and Buch for Santana (then sign him for a 100 plus million deal) are not bright.

    That's $137.5 million. Crazy money.

    Smoltz impressed by Bucholz

    It's good to see someone like Smoltz providing his wisdom and experience to Buchholz. I'm sure that Buchholz is thrilled that someone like Smoltz is taking an interest in him.

    What an extraordinary pick-up for the Sox...and what an extraordinary failure for the Braves in not having re-signed Smoltz. It's no wonder that Braves players were loudly lamenting their team's not aggressively locking him up. As a result, the Braves in desperation went out and signed Lowe to a megabucks contract. So....attch a "penny wise but pound foolish" label to them.

    Clearly, we can't be sure that Smoltz will return to past years' excellence. But, if he does less well than we believe, it won't be due to lack of imntelligence, lack of pitching and baseball savvy, lack of conditioning, lack of preparation, or lack of desire. I can't wait to see him in May/June....but already his presence on the team is reaping dividends for the Sox

    As for Buchholz, good for him to already surpass by a longshot anything that he was able to do last spring. I look forward to the day that he's a fixture in the rotation.

    Great read. Don't let Law read this or his head will explode. If Clay does well, his head will really explode like the movie "Scanners"!
