Glavine Would Take Less Money For Braves

The AJC's David O'Brien has a source close to Tom Glavine saying the free agent lefty would take less money to pitch for the Braves.  Glavine made $10.5MM this year and already has the Mets' $3MM buyout for '08 in his pocket (figuratively).

O'Brien says the Braves are likely to bump up their $84MM payroll, but they'd have to go past $100MM to fit in a discounted Glavine.  Or, they can clear payroll by trading Edgar Renteria for someone cheaper.

As for the talk of the Braves chasing a young Joe Blanton type, sure, I can see it.  It's just that the cupboard is a little bare.
