Colby Wilson’s Atlanta Braves Report: John Smoltz goes to the MLB Hall of Fame

 

Written by Colby Wilson

I hate these ‘If my life depended on it, I’d do blah blah blah’ scenarios, because no one’s life has ever depended on finding the perfect French dip sandwich or being able to drive from Nashville to Memphis in less than two-and-a-half hours. It’s a very hack way of saying ‘I find this thing to be better than any other of a list of a similar things’, but the first way is more eye-catching, so that’s how most people say it.

Having said that, if my life depended on the outcome of a baseball game, I’d want John Smoltz to get the ball.
