Smoltz's shoulder began hurting nearly a year ago during a start in Milwaukee. He's been on the disabled list three times since then and tried all sorts of radical solutions to cope with the pain.

He came up with a new routine at spring training, spending most of his time on the back fields pitching against minor leaguers. When the discomfort persisted through his first five starts, he decided to return to the closer role he held from 2001-04, believing that fewer innings would help him get through the season.

But one inning against the Marlins on Monday night convinced him that it was futile to continue.

"I certainly was prepared for it. I never had two days in a row where I felt good," Smoltz said. "I realized it the next day. Actually, I realized an hour afterward that the pain was just too great and I couldn't continue."

Anyway you look at it, hes had a great career and was one of the few bright spots during the Braves heyday

I say keep the $50 and ban him anyway...

For those jumping ship, we'll keep the bandwagon warm for you...
