Fan Letter to Tom Glavine

Dear Tom Glavine:

The changes in the Atlanta Braves over the last few years make me less likely to follow the games. Your summary firing last week was tactless. But Please! Please stopping whining. Please place a muzzle on your agent. 

If you choose to file a complaint with Major League Baseball, then you should do it; just stop talking about it. No one wants to hear your whining. If the standard of proof is that you can still pitch successfully in the majors, go get a job somewhere else. Prove them wrong. You complaining to every open microphone is unseemly. The Braves management does not care what the public thinks (see John Smoltz.)

While I have a great deal of empathy for your plight, your whining campaign only shows your weakness. The campaign has no impact on the decision makers.

Your fan,

Salmon and Grits

  1. I agree that it was tactless… but why should we expect tact? It’s business afterall, right? It was when Glavine turned down the player option to remain with the Braves in 2003, anyway.

    We’re actually debating this topic over at my blog, The Sports Debates, right now. Check it out and let me know what you think:
