Smoltz: Pujols still a good bet for long-term contract
Smoltz talked about Albert Pujols and the impact of his wrist injury on contract talks. “I’ll take Albert Pujols with a bad elbow or a bad shoulder,” Smoltz said. “He’s that much better than everyone else in the game.”
Smoltz said that there are some guys that you have to worry about with long-term contracts because they might stop working as hard. Smoltz said Pujols is absolutely not like that. “This guy has never let an at-bat go,” Smoltz said.
Smoltz had interesting comments on Bryce Harper blowing a kiss to a pitcher after hitting a homer off him in the minors. “That kind of stuff needs to be stopped early,” Smoltz said. “I’m quite confident that stuff has no place.”
Smoltz also talked a little about his old buddy Tiger Woods. He said they haven’t been hanging out, but he’s pretty sure that they’re still good.
