The Braves Blew It

Joel Sherman at the New York Post writes about Tom Glavine and how the Braves blew their chance to bring him back:

Remove Glavine's 13 wins and 23 quality starts (tied for third in the NL with Atlanta's Tim Hudson, one behind Atlanta's John Smoltz) and move them to the Braves, and Atlanta probably wins the division.

In that scenario, the Mets' 2006 NL East title takes on the tinge of fluke. Instead, with the Braves at Shea as a witness, the Mets were surging to a second straight division title for the first time in their history. Meanwhile, even with last night's 13-5 rout of the Mets, Atlanta was on the verge of a second straight empty October.

"We might very well be in completely different positions" if Glavine were in that slot rather than with the Mets, Omar Minaya said.
