As most of you know, I’ve been an advocate of the Mets bringing back Tom Glavine. That he’s talking with the Braves is a clear sign he prefers staying home in Atlanta than another year in Queens.
Glavine’s agent, Gregg Clifton, talked with the Braves and will again next week to discuss numbers. Money isn’t Glavine’s priority, and if the offers are close, then you’d have to think he will opt to stay home.
Glavine is over 40, but did threw 200 innings last summer, and that’s why he will be tough to replace. It’s also why the Braves want him back. They wouldn’t sign him just for a heartwarming gesture. He can still pitch.
