    Never properly appreciated here (for reasons so stupid that I can’t bring myself to write about them), in New York (no surprise there) and, frankly, in the game at large.

    I look forward to the day when Tommy, Greg, John, Larry and Bobby all have their proper place in Cooperstown, N.Y.

    Tom Glavine’s Braves Legacy:

    244 Wins
    5 20 win seasons
    8 All-star teams
    2 Cy Young Awards
    5 NL Pennants
    1 WS Championship
    1995 WS MVP
    A poorly made decision to sign with your teams biggest rival.

    Unfortunately, that last part of Glavine’s legacy is what many Braves’ fans will remember. Thanks for the good times Tom. See you in Cooperstown.

    I hated him most for lecturing me on labor/management relations from his country club during the strike of 1994. He made up for it by throwing the greatest game in Braves history the next season. When he left for the Mets it was business. What happened yesterday was business. Every professional scout who watched him in recent weeks said there was no difference between his fastball and changeup at this point. That equals a shelling every time out at the major league level.

    The Braves decision was correct. And I’ll be happy and filled with good memories when Glavine goes into Cooperstown.
