Will Glavine pitch in 2009?


Have we seen the last of Tom Glavine? Looks like we probably have. From MLB Rumors: Hilarious. I know lots of guys Glavine's (and my) age who know how to text. We're just not real quick about it.

Anyway, this is surprising only if we don't read between the lines a little bit. I figured that Glavine could still do enough to get a job with some desperate club as a fifth starter, but his (unofficial) retirement suggests that he didn't want to pitch for a desperate team, or didn't show enough to attract even someone who is desperate.

Either way, it looks to me like Glavine just didn't have an attractive offer. Which is kind of a shame, as I kind of wanted to see him pitch at least one more time. But only if he could pitch kind of well.
