Smoltz's Hard Feelings...

http://www.ajc.com/sports/content/sports/braves/stories/2009/06/18/smoltz_braves_red_sox.html

 

You know, I'm glad Smoltz can heal and let go of his feelings and all that mushy stuff.  However, I'm still a little torn.

I think he needs to issue an apology to the Braves management and fans for running his big fat mouth and leaving for more money and a championship grab.  If that is what you are doing, fine, but own up to it, admit it, and go on.  Don't bash the Braves on your way out the door because you decided to leave (I'm looking at you, too, Glavine). 

 

I was ok with him until I read this part of the article:

“I’ll be forever, as you say, wearing an Atlanta Brave on my hat and on my chest and in my heart,” he said. “That won’t be the issue, not at all.”

He is confident Braves fans know how he feels about the team, the city and them.

“Oh, they know,” he said. “The whole city of Atlanta for the most part knows how I feel about, really, it’s my home. It’s the community I’ve come to love.”

 

That is just the point, isn't it Smoltzie?.  If you truly wanted to be here, if you truly loved the city, the fans, and the organization, then why did you poopoo on us when you left?  Why did you continue to do so when we cut ties with a 44 year old pitcher?  Why bitch and moan and burn the city over 3-4 million when you've made over $150,000,000? 

 

He was my favorite Brave.  His heart may have healed.  Good for him.  Mine is still a little raw.
