Glavine wants the No Trade clause

Steve Popper at North Jersey, writes about Tom Glavine and the no trade clause he wants if the Braves want him back. Let's hope the Braves stay stubborn and we get our lefty ace back for one more season. Here are a couple excerpts from the article:

Glavine, according to a person close to him, is still waiting to hear what the Braves have to say. And if the first words don't include a no-trade clause, the discussions will end there. But he has yet to rule out the Braves, which remains troubling news for the Mets.

Glavine's agent Gregg Clifton would not comment other than to say: "The bottom line, he's promised the Mets he'll figure it out by the start of the winter meetings. That's all I can say."

Glavine has stalled this decision between returning to the Mets or heading home to Atlanta, wanting to appease his family. While Glavine is happy with the Mets and feels loyalty to them, he is balancing that against the desires of his family.

Glavine has not spoken to Braves' GM John Schuerholz and won't -- leaving the discussions to his agent after a rift developed when Schuerholz detailed their negotiations in a book.
