Smoltz Cards

SDS

Do you think he gets two cards? Would b fun to see a diamond closer and a SS SP for him

SDS

They hinted at that during the stream yesterday, can't see why they wouldn't.

SDS

Along those lines, I really wish they would give Waino a starter and closer card

SDS

When was waino a closer

2006 when the Cardinals won the World Series. He famously struck out Beltran looking in game 7 of the NLDS to end the series. He was really only closer at the end of the season, but pitched in relief all year. He then begin starting in 2007.
If they made a 2006 card, it'd have a great H/9 with an ok K/9.

SDS

Yeah i do recall that, dont think it would b as dominant card as a smoltzs closer card, think sds could pull it off and have a two way card for him?

SDS

I just hope they give maddux, glavine and Smoltz their correct pitches, like smoltzs nasty splitter and slider.

SDS

They brought it up themselves and joked about it.

It's happening.

SDS

Are we sure they keep SS for 20 ?

SS or the same thing with a different name

SDS

I wish it was more standard for guys to get 3-4 cards, if appropriate.

SDS

Why would you NOT give him two cards

SDS

I hope the Rookie and/or Breakout Maddox card has him wearing his glasses.

SDS

In a lot of ways Smoltz was even more dominant as a closer. His 2003 season, 45 saves, over 10-1 K/9, 1.12 ERA (he only gave up 8 earned runs for the whole season!) and a 0.8 WHIP. Dude was untouchable as a closer, he just wanted the ball more in the postseason so he went back to starting. So excited as a Braves fan to get these three in the game!

This tweet makes it sound like we're going to be able to use starters in the pen. But regardless if it's that or two cards. There's a little bit of a teaser. Also the video made me think, smoltz might be added to the broadcast in some way, shape, or form too.
