    He should really focus his rage on Chuck Knoblauch for that great, Series-saving fake in Game Seven.

    I would love to know Schuerholz's reaction to this story. Why wasn't he asked?

    He had no comment. It says in there.

    YES! The 1982 Cardinals just became even less likable than they already were. Way to go Skates!

    Ah. Skipped over that part and only saw the "Braves official" part.

    Hopefully the Atlanta papers do a good follow-up and get him to talk.

    A. If Schuerholz did tell other teams Smith was on drugs after 1983, he apparently was right.
    B. If Lonnie shot like he played left field, Schuerholz didn't mave much to worry about.

    Another load of "former drug addict reforms" bullshit.

    I'm fucking sick of it.

    I don't want to read or hear what former drug addicts have to say. Fuck 'em.

    No way. We had no idea. :D :D

    Am I the only one amused at the idea of a guy who had throwing problems later in his career making a fake throw to save the World Series?

    It's not quite as a egregious as Wohlers throwing a slider to Leyritz and speeding up his bat, but it's pretty close. I mean, players learn in high school to pick up the third base coach 2/3 of the way between first and second, and Smith, who by that point had been playing baseball, what, 25 years, really should have known better.
