What if Glavine Was a Brave This Year?

Remember when Tom Glavine wanted to be a Brave again, but they basically gave him the cold shoulder? Oh yeah that was last December.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post writes an interesting article about how Glavine has changed the dynamic of the NL East by remaining with the Mets.

Now I still believe that the Mets would be a contender without Glavine because Omar would have went out and gotten another arm, but there's no doubt that Glavine's 23 quality starts have made a serious impact on the success of the Mets.

Don't you just love it when you get to stick it to the Braves?

I've never been a huge Galvine fan (tough to get that Braves thing out of me) but he has been solid for this club over the last two seasons. Plus, in Game 5 of the NLCS last year, he was pitching a good game, I believe we were up 2-0, and Pujols hit a home run off him and the Cards scord another run after that. No one mentions this but there was a pitch that Pujols should have been struck out on just before his homer. And Glavine was really steamed on the mound - you could see his expression. The strike wasn't even a Glavine strike, it was a flat out stirke and the ump blew it.
