Smoltz set to sign with Red Sox (?!?!??!)

BOSTON -- Never shy about pitching on a big stage, John Smoltz, a potential Hall of Famer, is on the verge of signing with the Boston Red Sox, where every game feels big.

According to a source close to Smoltz, the 41-year-old right-hander plans on calling the Braves -- the only team he's ever pitched for -- on Thursday morning and telling them that he has decided to play for the Red Sox.

If nothing else, Smoltzie is competitive. I don't anticipate the Braves being competitive in 2009, but the Red Sox certainly will. I know a lot of Braves fans will be very upset, but if this is true and he does sign with the BoSox, it won't surprise me at all.
