Glavine

Don't believe anything you hear about Glavine signing anywhere beside The Mets, Yankees, or Angels. He'd sign with the Mets to be nice because he used to play for them. The Yankees and Angels because they need starters, could contend, would pay him buckets of cash, and he wouldn't have to bunt
