Lopez ready for a new chance; Veteran feels 'born again' after signing Minor League deal

Countless hours spent with his longtime trainer Brad Pope have resulted in an impressive makeover. The initial glance at the current Lopez could cause some to feel like they've ventured into the past. Gone is that bulky, muscular frame that he carried during his final years in Atlanta.

It has been replaced by that slender, athletic build that he possessed when he first introduced himself to Braves fans nearly 15 years ago.

"I guess a lot of good things will come with good effort and hard work," Lopez said. "Once you're happy, everything else will come."

Family ties brought Glavine back to Atlanta

During his five years in New York with the Mets, Tom Glavine stayed up late after games, watched Tivo until 3 or 4 a.m. and slept until noon.

With his family back in Alpharetta, he was trying to avoid the morning hours, when he and his wife Chris would have been taking the kids to school and spending time together. Alone in Greenwich, Conn., he preferred to be in a dream state. "It took my mind off wanting to be home or feeling guilty because I wasn't at home," Glavine says.

Finally, rookie hazing pictures never get old.

Have a wonderful Christmas, everyone!

Thought you might like to read this interview Brian did on his favorite Chirstmas memories and other stuff. It mentions a little about his wife and wedding, etc.
