Glavine To Probably Deny Option

Jack Wilkinson at SI.com writes about Tom Glavine and him thinking about turning down his option. The funny thing about this is that he had all the intentions, at least that's what I goatherd out of it, that he wanted to pitch one more season with the Mets and now he says this:

Back home in Atlanta following the New York Mets historic collapse, Tom Glavine said Tuesday he'll "most likely" decline his $9 million player option for next season.

"The decision goes much deeper than that in deciding what I want to do next year," said Glavine, who finished 13-8 after his earned-run average ballooned Sunday to 4.45. "I have to be home, away from baseball, with my family [before making a decision]."

"Atlanta is home," Glavine said. "The hardest thing for me in New York is playing and being away from home. I've played in New York for five years now. If you break it down [in days, weeks and months], I've been away from my home for four years now. I'm at the point where my wife and kids [ages 13, 12, 8 and 6] are making sacrifices for me."
