Tom Glavine: Get Well Soon!

Could this be the end of a hall of fame career? Let's hope not.
Atlanta Braves left-hander Tom Glavine ended his minor league start with Double-A Mississippi early on Sunday after experiencing shoulder discomfort.

The 43-year-old Glavine had expected to throw 50 to 60 pitches, but left after only 36 in two innings. He gave up three hits, including a solo home run, with one walk and no strikeouts against Carolina.

Even though I am still bitter about Glavine's final start as a New York Met, this is not the way a hall of fame career should end.

Is it bad of me to have expected/wanted this to happen? I love Glavine (and Smoltz), but you have to learn to let go at some point. Especially when the Braves have better options in the minors.

I agree with you about the Braves having better options....hopefully this injury will eventually pave the way for Tommy Hanson
