Tom Glavine Released

By Mike Silva ~ June 3rd, 2009. Filed under: Rumor Mill.

It appears that the career of former Mets pitcher Tom Glavine may be over. Ken Rosenthal is reporting at Fox Sports that the Braves released the 300 game winner because his velocity is down.

I know what the fans would say but, with rotation depth an issue, do the Mets take a flier on Glavine? Can he do worse than Tim Redding? Better yet, can he perform worse than Oliver Perez to date?

Won’t happen, but there are worse pitchers out there. I wonder if the Phillies, who were interested in Glavine when he was a free agent in 2002, will take a look.

    As soon as I heard that Glavine was released I said to myself, “I bet Silva will write a blurb about the Mets signing Glavine.”

    Based upon dozens of past blurbs about everybody from Bernie Williams to Freddy Garcia and every other released or retired player coming to the Mets this year, I didn’t need a crystal ball to figure you guys out.

    If Glavine signs anywhere (and he shouldn’t cause he’s done), it will be in Boston with his home town team, just like his buddy John Smoltz.
