Early this morning, I selected this picture of John Smoltz(notes) handing over the ball over to Terry Francona for today's Create-a-Caption. Of course, he's since been cut by the Red Sox which means this could well be the last shot ever taken of Smoltz the pitcher. Kinda sad, really.
So have at it, amateur Internet copy editors of the world. How should this caption read?
1st — jds. Zito takes a curtain call, which was odd considering no one called for it.
2nd — Adam W. Zito gives Houston fans a curtain call for last year's stellar 6.94 ERA against the Astros .
3rd — uhoh. Zito watches the game oblivious of the "Screw Texas" sign stuck to the back of his jersey much to the enjoyment of his young teammates as Astros fans look on completely appalled.
HM — Cody C. "Lincecum and Cain share a laugh after Zito told them he was a Cy Young Award winner"
