Smoltz awarded two-year extension

Terms not disclosed, other than the contract length, two years with an option for 2007. It likely includes a renegotiation of his 2005 salary to get rid of the massive per-start bonus that the Braves were fearful of… If John can stay healthy and pitch through 2007, he’ll probably wind up with better than 200 wins. With his three-plus years as a closer giving him 154 saves, his postseason record, and his Cy Young, he’ll have an interesting Hall of Fame case.
