 ATLANTA (AP) -Tom Glavine won't have to wait long for his first look at the New York Mets.
The Atlanta Braves open a three-game series against the Mets on Friday, and Glavine, who spent the last five years in New York, will pitch the second game on Saturday.
``It's the kind of thing I knew obviously would happen at some point of the year,'' Glavine said Thursday. ``I guess it's happening now sooner than I anticipated. Of course it's going to be weird. It's going to be very similar to when I faced the Braves for the first time after leaving here.''
Glavine pitched for Atlanta from 1987-2002, winning 242 games and two NL Cy Young Awards. He was the winning pitcher in the Braves' decisive 1-0 win over Cleveland in Game 6 of the 1995 World Series.
Glavine signed a free-agent deal with the Mets following the 2002 season but then re-signed this offseason with Atlanta.
The 42-year-old Glavine earned a no-decision in his first start this year, allowing seven hits and one earned run in five innings against Pittsburgh on Monday.
When Glavine was with New York his starts against Atlanta also received extra attention. Now he's back on the other side of the rivalry, but says his time with the Mets adds a new personal twist.
``I made some good friends on that team and enjoyed my time with those guys,'' he said. ``They were an important part of my baseball life. Going out there and competing against those guys for the first time after having been a teammate is going to be different.''
