SI's Donovan On "Terrific" Tom Glavine

Came across a great article on SI this morning, by columnist John Donovan, about our own Tom Glavine. You can read the article by clicking here. The title is a nice play on our previous HOF pitcher, also named Tom, and Donovan offers a great opening line, a question we've all posed at one point or another:

You look at Tom Glavine -- the impassive face, the simple and effortless delivery, the impossibly underpowering repertoire of pitches -- and you can't help but wonder: How does he do it? How has Glavine won all these years? And how can he still be winning? With that stuff?

Definitely a great read! By the way- the picture accompanying this article was created by my brother, Michael (copyright 2007) and was a combo of a photo he took of Glavine and the scoreboard flashing win number 298- hopefully he'll be there for win 300 to shoot a similar photo!
