So suck it, Rosenthal. Hours after Fox Sports added Houston to a list of teams interested in John Smoltz, McTaggart sets the record straight:
Smoltz was said to have drawn interest of several teams according to a report by Foxsports.com, a list that included the Astros. And while the Astros have kicked around dozens of names from the list of free agents who have filed, sources indicate their interest in Smoltz just isn't there.
If Valverde leaves, the Astros will need a closer, but it ain't gonna be Smoltz.
