Skates Wanted Blood

A sobering piece about former Braves outfielder Lonnie Smith in The State, a South Carolina newspaper:

He carries the most visible reminder on his right hand, where a deep scar near his thumb reminds him that he had both a gun and a plan to kill John Schuerholz, the general manager Smith blamed for sabotaging his career while he played for the Kansas City Royals.

It's a piece definitely worth a read, though it's a bit chilling.
