Before I get flamed, answer one question. Given the choice, would you want Tom Glavine or Randy Johnson as your left-handed starter for a must-win game?
Why would that even matter? Is not like this is a choice between Glavine and Johnson on the ballot. Glavine is a worthy HOFer. And the whole "is he a first ballot HOFer" argument is ridiculous IMO. Either you're a Hall of Famer, or you're not.
