"I think we've made some progress," GM Frank Wren told ESPN.com Sunday. "I think there's a true desire on both parties to get something done."
FRIDAY: Yesterday, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports mentioned these details on Tom Glavine's contract aspirations:
Glavine is seeking a guarantee of $3MM, plus incentives that could push the total value of his package into the $6MM range. He is willing to defer a portion of his salary.
Today, MLB.com's Mark Bowman says the Braves have offered a new one-year proposal that would defer the incentives for up to five years. The offer guarantees $1MM, with a chance to earn another $3MM in deferred incentives. Bowman suggests both sides are more optimistic today than they were yesterday.
