Braves Sign Tom Glavine

It's now official: the Braves have signed Tom Glavine to a one-year, $8MM deal.  There doesn't appear to be any kind of second-year option.  The Braves initially came in at $6.5MM.  MLB.com's Mark Bowman says the Nationals and Phillies were in on him, but never really had a shot at making a deal.  The Mets probably aren't terribly concerned about the loss, since they get the Braves' valuable #18 overall pick next June plus a supplemental pick as compensation.

After a 2007 lacking in rotation depth, the Braves have a slew of candidates to start.  Even without counting on Mike Hampton for anything, they are in good shape.  Pitching depth can unravel quickly, but things look good as of November 19th, 2007.

The Braves might be pretty much set this winter, assuming they like Josh Anderson as their starting center fielder.
