The Braves shored up their rotation yesterday by signing Tom Glavine to a one year, $8 million deal that will probably mean the former Brave will retire a Brave. Glavine turned down his $13 million option with the Mets and he’ll now be much closer to home and more importantly, in a Braves uniform.
Glavine’s role will be a little different though. No longer the ace, he’ll be in the middle of the rotation and reunited with John Smoltz along with Tim Hudson and Chuck James. I like the way the rotation is shaping up and even with the departure of Andruw Jones, you still have four very solid sticks in Chipper Jones, Brian McCann, Jeff Francoeur and Mark Teixeira. In fact at this stage of things, I’d have to say the Braves are the favorites to win the division.
