Maybe Smoltz should be the closer.

I got to thinking about it, and I was thinking that the Atlanta Braves could really use John Smoltz as their closer.  He is getting up there in years and it would be easier on him, healthwise, for him to come in during the 8th or 9th inning and close the game out.  It would be intimidating to the other team to bring in a rested Smoltz in the 9th while the other team is tired from the game.  I'm not saying that he should not start anymore, it is just that it would be better for him to come in later in the game.
