Ya I agree. It just made me scratch my head a little. Cabrera's glove is better and he seems to value that over Rent's bat.I read that a Renteria/Garland deal was purposed and Kenny Williams turned it down. I like the Jurjjens/Hernandez deal better for the Braves anyway.

Enjoy the washup. Braves fans had better hope he gets an umpire with a large strikezone.
First off Pedro will be better than glavine this year. Hernandez will be too if he stays healthy and even i have yo say that's a big if. I know draft picks aren't worth a lot but is galvine worth a 1st rounder? He'll be ok, wh do have umps with large strikezones. But in general an ok third starter for the braves who do need starting pitching like another team in the division.
Glavine is worth a first round pick because the MLB draft is completely different from the NFL or NBA. Not many first round picks acutally contribute for a while some do but for the most part it still takes a good amount of time. Glavine will be fine for one year and giving up a pick that might someday contribute to the Mets is fine.
I have never been the biggest fan of Glavine. A HOF career wise no doubt. However i'm happy to get a pick for Glavine. We have no idea how much he has left. He is better than Mike Hampton. Glavine is good for parts of the season and then he just blows up. Glavine doesn't solve many of the braves pitching problems. IF you ask me his record will be at .500 and era 4.25-4.50.
Teams are putting a lot more into who they draft. The MLB draft is slowly becoming like the NBA and NFL.Glavine is worth a first round pick because the MLB draft is completely different from the NFL or NBA.

I watched him pitch many of those games and I lost count of how many games Cliff Floyd and Kaz Matsui lost with their broken legged fielding at the worst possible moments.
If you want an Ace, I understand Kenny Rogers is available...

So we basicall agree on what you are getting.
I'm really glad he's coming back. I liked the other two out of the big three more, but I still like Glavine. And anything that helps the Braves is fine by me.
