Tom Glavine On David Price, Mets’ Young Pitching And ‘Chicks Dig The Long Ball’

Tom Glavine Should Not be in the Hall of Fame

Many of you may, or may not agree with me, but I believe that while, Frank Thomas and Greg Maddux should be elected to the hall of fame of baseball, Tom Glavine should not.
