Glavine Likely To Pitch For Mets In '08

The New York Posts's Kevin Kernan has an exclusive report today on Tom Glavine.  He's got many quotes from Glavine indicating that the 41 year-old southpaw will play another season and stay with the Mets.  Glavine's family is encouraging him to play again.  He can also aim to improve his standing in career wins from 21st to 16th.

According to Kernan, Glavine will likely decline his player option and instead ink a new one-year pact for around $12MM.  That is curious to me because the player option is likely to reach $13MM if Glavine reaches 200 innings this year.

Kernan adds that the Braves could still try to lure Glavine back but it seems unlikely given the price.  However with the new ownership and the clear need for one good starter, the possibility can't be eliminated.  If such a scenario does occur, the Mets could always make a similar offer to Curt Schilling.
