SUV for Tom Glavine

It’s great that Tom Glavine has won 300 games and received lots of formal recognition for it. He’s a remarkable athlete and has conducted himself admirably both on and off the field. But I hope I am not the only one who finds it disgusting and perverse to reward a millionaire with an environmentally hostile thing like an SUV. What on earth is the point?
In other news, however, the Mets did kick the Marlins’ asses today, which is as it should be.
