Tom Glavine signs with...

With John Smoltz signing with the Cardinals, fellow long-time Atlanta Braves rotation-mate Tom Glavine won't be outdone...

Former Atlanta Braves pitcher Tom Glavine will pitch AirTran Airways on billboards and radio spots in the Atlanta area.

AirTran announced Glavine's signing on Thursday. Terms were not disclosed.

Gotcha! I wonder if he'll wear a Braves uniform in the ads. Strange that they use a guy who was released from the team this year, as opposed to someone currently on the team. I also love how this release is similar to baseball releases in that "terms were not disclosed."

AirTran shares rose 11 cents, or 1.7 percent, to $6.44 in afternoon trading.
