Braves say goodbye to Tom Glavine

First the Braves let Smoltzy walk as a free agent in the offseason, and after an injury prune return home, are bidding farewell to Tom Glavine, the last of the three great hurlers that dominated the National League in the late 90s and early 00s for the Bravos.

You'd think they would keep the guy as a veteran presence in the clubhouse or something, but to out right release the guy? Where's the loyalty?

From the press release that just landed in the inbox:

ATLANTA, Ga. – The Atlanta Braves announced today that pitcher Tom Glavine has been released. Glavine, 43, underwent left elbow surgery on August 15, 2008 and signed a one-year contract with the Braves on February 20th for the 2009 season.

Following surgery late in the 2008 season, Glavine attempted to rehabilitate his surgically repaired left elbow during the offseason and followed that with four rehabilitation starts in 2009.

“We appreciate and respect everything Tom has done for and brought to the Atlanta Braves organization and our fans,” said Executive Vice President and General Manager Frank Wren. “His accomplishments for our club during his hall of fame career is a measure of his dedication that we will always respect and admire. We wish him nothing but the very best.”

Now git!
