John Smoltz not throwing in the Congressional Game

Rumors of Atlanta Braves Pitcher, John Smoltz, running for John Linders Congressional seat are completely false.  Smoltz told an Atlanta Journal Constitution reporter via SMS and a telephonic conversation

Pardon the language, but the brief conversation with Smoltz went something like this:
Me: jim galloway w ajc politics here. Could u call re ur interest in linder seat? Thx.
Smoltz: I do not know what you are talking about I am not in any way involved in anything regarding politics sorry.
Me: [Certain Washington source] says u would make gud candidate to replace john linder who has announced retirement. Interested?
Smoltz: Sorry I am not.
Smoltz followed this messages with a phone call an hour or so later, and — and from a volleyball tournament in Alabama — confessed that he’d thought someone had been playing a joke on him.
