R.I.P. Dave Smith
It was announced today that former Astros and Cubs pitchers and Padres pitching coach Dave Smith has passed away. He died of a heart attack at age 53. He was named to the Astros all star Astrodome team and recorded double digit saves every year from 1985-1991, once reaching as high as 33. This is something of a shock as he is only two years older than I am.
