Smoltz Gets Introduced

"I'm as determined and I'm as focused as I've ever been. The uniform has changed. The desire won't change... I love their [Red Sox] approach. Their approach is, 'We're going to slow you down and give us the best chance to win a championship. Whenever you're ready, you're ready.' " -- 1.13.09, John Smoltz, No. 7 starter
