Is John Smoltz's Career Over?

old peopleThe Boston Red Sox have sent John Smoltz packing, a day after yet another early exit where the rival New York Yankees spanked him for eight runs on nine hits and four walks in just over three innings.

The struggling 42-year-old righty, who probably should have just retired as a long-time Atlanta Brave, will see within the next 10 days whether Boston trades, releases or sends him to the minors.

Smoltz, who was signed by Boston back in January, has put up some pretty ugly numbers for a guy who has led a Hall of Fame career. In eight starts with the Sox this year, he went 2-5 with a 8.32 ERA. Yikes.

Haha, yes it's over. He should've retired as a Brave and left his legacy in tact. Why do these aging hurlers feel the need to keep playing??
