Knowing Roger, I wouldn't put it past him to try to pitch in 2010 just to get two more wins. Not that a team would want him or that he could even win two more games, but I could see him trying it.

I loved to watch Maddux pitch. The way he could make a hitter look bad or how quick he could pitch a game. I hated the day he left the Braves. I personally would like to see him go in as a Brave. Maddux, Glavine, and Smoltz shold all go in together.

The only knock on Maddux was his post season record. But his other problem was he always pitched against the best pitcher on the other teams. He should have 400 wins. There were so many games that he pitch as a Brave that they could not score any runs.
Looking for Falcons. C.J. Spiller and other Clemson cards

I really dislike Maddux....he had a 25 inch strike zone for about 8 years of his career

He acted like everyone should be a perfect little white boy and the Braves teammates all followed suite

He lost every big game playoff game he could AND!!!

Just kidding....I'm a Reds fan and the guy killed me. He made Reggie Sanders look like a blind man in the playoffs one year (well all the Reds except Larkin)

He could tell his infielders where he expected the batter to hit the ball

He could throw a pitch in the same location at different speeds and different movements in one at bat and sometimes just 3 pitches (strike one, two and three)

Have to say....I hated to see him pitch but I admired his talent

Smoltz is the same way...but I think Smoltz is even tougher

Definitely not a Braves or Cubs Fan, but considering no steroids, no whining, no complaining, not much of a bullpen, and so many other things, if Maddux goes into the Hall of Fame with anything less than 100% of the vote, those that don't vote for him should lose their voting privileges.

Now Tom Glavine should hang em up.....but I still think Smoltz has something left in him just dont think it will be on the Braves
On any given Sunday you're gonna win or you're gonna lose. The point is - can you win or lose like a man?
