Is there any loyalty left in pro sports whatsoever? John Smoltz is now in Boston. I can say this without any reservation or without risking feeling bad about it later. I hope John NEVER is able to throw an official pitch for Boston. I hope his arm completely gives out. I hope he isn't elected to the Hall of Fame, and if he is, I don't want him to be celebrated as an Atlanta Brave. He is no longer a Brave, and I don't wish he be remembered as one. Now that I've let Smoltz have it, I'll blast the Braves. Why couldn't they find some way to keep this guy? They are incredibly cheap now. Are they really that damned broke? Well, this is the last straw. I'm tired of seeing the Braves let themselves fall farther and farther off the map with each passing day. I am no longer a fan. I am now officially a "free agent". I don't have a team! And MLB now. WHY DON"T WE HAVE A SALARY CAP?! A handful of teams, mainly in the Northeast, now get all the stars. I know it hasn't quite happened yet, but eventually, this is a trend that is going to catch up with the league. Several teams will compete for the championship while everyone else will be shit.
