John Smoltz: Losing Acuña Brought Braves Closer Together

Most baseball fans figured the Braves would go into "sell-mode" after losing MVP candidate Ronald Acuña Jr to an ACL tear but not only did they end up making the Playoffs, they won the World Series. The Braves made a few key deals at the trade deadline but John Smoltz believes the injury to the Braves' most talented player brought the Atlanta locker room closer together.

Former Cy Young winner, World Series Champion, 8-time All Star, and former Braves great John Smoltz joined the show from Lake Nona for the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions to talk about his golf game, Shohei Ohtani, his former team's incredible run to a title, and more. Segment can be heard in the podcast clip below.
