Career-defining games don’t come any better than this.

  1. When I see that avatar, which should be on an account at the dumbasspeckerwoods.net message board, then I get cranky.

  2. I always liked Glavine and he did win the biggest game in Atlanta history, but I am afraid by his decision to leave Atlanta for NY he cost himself the eternal love of Braves fans. He was a union man first, then a ball player.

  3. I have held the union stuff against Tommy G. since 1994, to my own detriment. After Jim Bunning had his little stand-off in the Senate a couple months back, S.I. ran a piece on Bunning and quoted Marvin Miller at some length. Lo and behold, Bunning had been very active in the MLBPA and was instrumental in the union obtaining Miller’s services. I should have enjoyed Glavine a little more. Clete is right, he was a great Brave.

  4. I’ve never believed he wanted to leave. I blame that on Schuerholz. He let a HOFer walk and “replaced” him with the likes of Mike Hampton and John Thomson. Larry Himes is justly excoriated and ridiculed for letting Maddux walk. This was not as bad but it was comparable in it’s arrogance and short sightedness.

  5. I was wondering when this would happen. That’s good stuff.

    If you read JS’s book, it’s pretty clear he didn’t want to leave, but Glav felt disrespected. JS almost had him back, but he states that Glav’s agent made him honor is agreement w/ the Mets. It was a mistake, but I also remember watch Tommy walk off the mound in his last playoff game against the Giants thinking his career was over. Not sure what I would have done in JS’s shoes. I’m just glad he’s back with the organization and get the respect he deserves from the front office now.

  6. I read somewhere that he ranks third or fourth for the most wins among lefthanders in Mets history, which says a lot about the Mets.
