WTF? "Smoltz on verge of deal with Red Sox"?

Apparently Smoltz may be going to the Red Sox in one of the more unpredictible moves of the offseason.  Reported by ESPN so its a little more credible than your typical rumor.

Smoltz has been great lately and looked to be doing well last year if it wasn't for the injury he sustained.  I'm pretty surprised Boston went after Smoltz because their rotation should be pretty set although I guess everybody could find room for him in their rotation.  Although it kills Smoltz's value, it would be interesting to see if he is used in Boston's rotation or the bullpen. 

This really hurts the Braves since they were looking for a pitcher. 

Apparently the contract is 5 mil base and up to 10.5 mil total.

(Olney's post doubled in size and details right as I posted this)

At the bottom is some speculation of trading young pitching (Clay Buchholz) for a catcher.  We have a lot of catchers....Lets make a deal!
