A lot of people expected the Padres to be sellers with Justin Upton and Craig Kimbrel being tossed around as potential trade candidates, but no. This is all they get.
John Smoltz, Pedro Martinez, Craig Biggio, and Randy Johnson were all officially inducted into the Hall of Fame on Sunday. Smoltz was the second to talk after Biggio, and donned a wig to take a crack at his fellow Hall teammates Maddux and Glavine.
Here's an interesting tidbit about Smoltz's speech.
Smoltz's speech went 29 minutes and 29 seconds. You can't make this stuff up.— Ben Ingram (@IngramRadio) July 26, 2015
Congrats, Smoltzie. You earned it. :)
As if David Ross couldn't be any more awesome...
This also gives me a reason to use this again! It's been three years already.
Entering this year, Tim Hudson had wins against all but two MLB teams: the Braves and the A's. He had beaten the Braves earlier this year, but on Sunday finally topped the A's to become the 15th pitcher to beat all 30 major-league teams. A.J. Burnett and Dan Haren are two active pitchers who have also accomplished the feat.
