Maddux and Glavine in the Fall Classic

If Clayton Kershaw struggles at any time in the World Series you're likely to hear how much Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine struggled in the postseason, even if it's not true. While it's true that neither was as dominant as they were in the regular season, they were still solid. Maddux had a 3.27 ERA... Continue Reading →


Fish might get Glavine, #Braves stuck w/ Liberty

Sources: Tagg Romney and Tom Glavine working together to buy the #Marlins. — Robert Murray (@RobertMurrayFRS) April 20, 2017 Well that's depressing.

A+ Chris Woodward granted free agency. Easy call. A+ Andruw granted free agency. The right call. November 2007 Traded... Continue Reading →

Bobby on Tommy G

"The greatest compliment he got was from Greg Maddux at his retirement ceremony in Las Vegas. He was asked what he learned from Tom Glavine. To pitch with pain. That's the kind of guy he is." Bobby choked up as he said this. So did I. Thanks for everything, Tommy. --CB
