From the AJC:
The Mets told Glavine they’d wait while he explored returning to the Braves, and he spent the past month discussing the decision with his family and later waiting for the Braves to make an offer.
“In the end, it wasn’t fair for anybody involved to drag it out any longer,” Glavine said. “I didn’t know exactly their payroll constraints and what’s going on with them. I guess there could have been ways around not formally making me an offer [but making an informal one], but none of that happened.”
“The Mets were first class the whole way. I’m going back to an organization I’ve had a lot of fun with, and they’ve been hugely respectful of me and my family, and a good team on top of that. We’ve got some things we’re trying to fix, but the team is committed to doing it.”
