Glavine goes home

There may be no more appropriate way for Tom Glavine's career to end than in an Atlanta Braves uniform.

It appears that will happen as Glavine has accepted a one-year, $8 million contract to pitch for the Braves in 2008.

There was a groundswell of support for Glavine to return to Georgia last year and win his 300th game with Braves stitched across his chest. Instead, he stuck with the New York Mets, won his milestone game then helped finish off one of the greatest collapses in baseball history.

Regardless of how 2007 ended, Glavine remains a class act and will take his place alongside John Smoltz next season as the Braves try to rekindle their 1990s mojo.

No one embodied that more than Glavine, the lone member of those vaunted Atlanta pitching staffs who was a Brave from the beginning. Now he will have a chance to close out his career in the only place he should have ever called home -- Atlanta.
