Glavine, who filed provisionally for free agency Thursday, will
get a $3 million buyout if the Mets decline their option. He isn't
sure yet whether he wants to stay in New York or try to go back to
the Atlanta Braves.
The 40-year-old left-hander was 15-7 with a 3.82 ERA this year
and became the team's ace when Pedro Martinez got hurt. Martinez is
expected to miss the first half of next season following shoulder
Glavine has a 290-191 record in 20 major league seasons.
