Astros interested in Smoltz?

Rob Neyer's new post references an Atlanta Journal-Constitution report that, among other teams, the Astros have expressed interest in John Smoltz this off-season.

Like most of the rest of the unsigned veterans who used to play in All-Star games, Smoltz probably is still good enough to play in the majors. It's just a question of money and pride.

What do you think? Should the Astros take on Smoltz? And in what role?

Smoltz seems to still have a little left in the tank. He was throwing 91.4MPH last year, and he had a great K/BB ratio (4.06).

I wouldn't mind having him in the bullpen, as long as they don't take a rotation spot from Paulino or Norris. That's my main concern any time pitchers come up.

That would be just weird, seeing him in an Astros shirt.
