case for smoltz?

                                                                                    Should the Marlins even go after Smoltz?

Lindstrom's SMOLTZ 2009 stats


40 IP  8.32 ERA  1.70 WHIP...  59 H   9 BB   8 HR

RH   .232 BAA   .94 WHIP

LH   .444 BAA   2.66 WHIP


Clearly, his splits show coming out of the bullpen for righties, or at least as a decoy, is his most likely situation. With the Fish only playing (excluding the Rockies) 8 more teams there are about 15-20 righties from those teams that, if Smoltz could dominate, could make him a huge pickup.

These career numbers don't seem to be good enough against the actual hitters Smoltz would face down the stretch; even as a reliever. Getting Badenhop back (paired with a healthy A. Sanchez) are much better options at this point in the season.
