More proof that some people have too much time on their hands. But it is cool, in a geeky kind of way.

I was watching a some of the Baseball Tonight special from Disney Hollywood Studio (i.e., the theme park formerly known as Disney-MGM Studios). It's ESPN: The Weekend at Disney World and they were interviewing a number of players from teams who hold spring training in the area.

The Braves train at the Disney Wide World of Sports complex, so naturally some Atlanta players showed up. Future Hall of Famers John Smoltz and Tom Glavine were interviewed and talked about the Braves chances in the upcoming season. The thing that really got me interested was when they started talking about the possibility of Smoltz, Glavine and Greg Maddux all retiring at the same time so they would go into the Hall of Fame together.

I hope the three of them can work this out. The greatest tribute I can imagine to the Braves great run of 14 consecutive division titles would be to have the three centerpiece players of that era go into Cooperstown together.
