Smoltz debut with Sox a bust

John Smoltz made his much anticipated debut with the Red Sox last night with mixed results. He immediately gave up four runs in the first inning putting the Sox in a hole. Perhaps it was nerves, perhaps some rust, but Smoltz must improve upon this outing if he is going to help the Sox. Why were the Sox interested in Smoltz in the first place? His performance in post season play certainly played into the decision to sign him. Come October and November Smoltz will prove to us that Theo Epstein made a wise choice to bring him to Boston.
