Cy Young...Smoltz?

Greg Maddux won 15 games again...one off the NL lead. Stole a base, his second of the year, and 8th of his career. Got a great jump when the pitcher wasn't paying attention. Do you think Roger Clemens decision to come back has a little to do with Maddux behind him on the all time list? Smoltz won 15, plus how many times did he leave the game with the lead, only to have the bullpen lose it for him...eight or nine. Third in the NL in strikeouts. Last year Clemens won the Cy Young with a comparable year, right? Or is the sentiment to give the award to Trevor Hoffman?

Can the Twins knock off the Yanks? LA could topple the Mets and continue on to the Series. That after the Cards top the Padres. See Adam Wainwright closing out today's game?

Clemson lost to Boston College but beat FSU, Florida Atlantic, UNC, and La Tech. They have yet to play Wake, Temple, Tech, Va Tech on the road, Maryland, NC State, and South Carolina. GT still has Maryland, Clemson, Miami, NC State, UNC, Duke, and UGA. Shall be an interesting season.
