In a big game I'm taking Smoltz. I guess looking at it carerwise i'm taking Glavine.
Smoltz went against the other teams 1 in the playoffs ? Is that how they set up their rotation in the playoffs? I'm just asking because I don't remember that far back . That's pretty amazing there could be such a disparity between the regular season performances and the postseason performances of the 3 pitchers.
