So It's Gavine's fault that the Braves needed to dump salary to actually make him an offer?

He could have taken a bigger paycut to come back home!

How can you take a paycut if you don't even know what the team is going to offer you?

"In the end, it wasn't fair for anybody involved to drag it out any longer," Glavine said. "I didn't know exactly their payroll constraints and what's going on with them. I guess there could have been ways around not formally making me an offer [but making an informal one], but none of that happened."

Schuerholz can spin it anyway he wants, he just didn't get it done.

Bottom line.....the Mets front office acted like gentlemen and I'm sure Glavine and his family appreciated that while the Braves front office acted like the cheap slugs they are(Scheurholz really I guess) and tried to undercut Glavine ....I believe to make him "pay" for leaving in the first place. No class. Atlanta players(Chipper comes to mind) have always went the extra mile to accomodate the Atlanta front office and you never see any reciprocation(I know that these contracts are nothing to sneeze at...but it's more than that)

BUT.....thank you Atlanta ...we'll take Tommy for at least one more and hopefully, it will be nice to see him win #300 in a Mets uniform.

300 or not as a Met, he is still going into the Hall of Fame as a Brave

As well he should. That Braves run in the '90's was pretty amazing and the big three made it happen. Some great baseball there..
When I think of Glavine...I think of him as a Brave.....unless he can help us win the Series next year!
