He signed a tv deal with WTBS. He's going to do regular and post season games.

A true HOF!!

Yeah, he's done.


the tbs deal is good for him, as he'll be close to home most of the year.

Looks like the rumor the Twins were going to sign him to close were false

He'll be a year behind Maddux and Glavine in HOF eligibility, correct?

He might as well step away. His best days have been behind him for a few years now.

would be cool to have them all go in at once, but I doubt it. Maddux is a surefire 1st ballot, and glavine is a strong case for it as well.

Glavine absolutely should get in with Maddux. Two of the best of a generation.

Smoltz will follow the next year, IMO.
