John Smoltz is Doc Brown

According to ESPN.com's Christopher Harris, John Smoltz is apparently one of those rare people who has the ability to travel backwards in time.

There's a graph in the middle of the article detailing pitchers who have returned from Tommy John surgery; Smoltz, of course, is one of the more successful examples. The graph, though, lists him as having surgery in March 2003 - and then returning from that surgery to pitch 59 innings in 2001.

It's not so much a grammar error as it is a factual error - Smoltz actually had surgery in March 2000 - but it's humorous nonetheless.
