Glavine deal nears completion

Multiple Major League sources have confirmed that Tom Glavine’s one-year deal with the Braves will be likely be finalized on Friday morning.  It seems like they’re just ironing out the details about the deferred payments that he’ll be receiving.

Glavine will receive a $1 million guaranteed contract that includes incentives worth approximately $3.5 million.

With Glavine’s deal almost complete, we can project the Braves to have approximately $2-3 million to spend if they continue to pursue an outfielder via trade or the free agent market.  But they’ve said they’ll first take a look at their internal outfield options.


All in all, it’s been a productive week. Avoiding arbitration with two starting position players, signing our 5th pitcher, and cutting JoJo “there it go” Reyes. The Griffey thing would have been an added bonus. It didn’t work out, but I’m ready for the season. We know who we are now. We know what we have. There’s a lot to be excited about. I’m particularly interested in Josh Anderson and how he will play as a starter. Schafer and how he will hit big league pitching. The depth of our bullpen. And most of all how Frenchy rebounds and handles adversity. It will be an exciting year!

Mark– I’ve heard rumors that there has been some talk of a contractual offer to Jim Edmonds. Can you confirm / deny this?
