Tom Terrific

David Studeman of Hardball Times just released today the list of the Best Pitchers of All-Time. Studeman listed Tom Glavine #26. This is Studeman's review of Glavine:

26. Tom Glavine (180 WSAB/303 WS)Glavine is a master of guile. I've got to think that very few pitchers got to own a part of the (pseudo) strike zone the way that Glavine was given the outside part of the plate. Thanks to that curve on the outside "corner," righthanded batters actually had a lower batting average against him than lefthanded batters. And he never gives in, always happy to walk a batter, even with runners in scoring position, just to maintain his ownership of that corner.
