John Smoltz recently joined TBS as a regular season and playoff baseball analyst.
According to reports, Smoltz has always seen himself as a TV personality and has long had aspirations to get in front of the camera.
“His in-game commentary used to drive Maddux and Glavine crazy”, revealed a former clubhouse attendant.”They had him kicked-out of the dugout and moved to the bullpen – why do you think he didn’t return to starting until after they were both gone.”
Apparently Smoltz would also torment Bobby Cox and Leo Mazzone by ‘cutting to commercial’ whenever they came out to the mound.
Smoltz is excited about the opportunity and hopes to bring a “Ryan Seacrest flavor” to the broadcasts.
