I think we could get some good arguments with this thread.

But I would have to go with Glavine. He's been along longer (1987-88 versus 1995 for Pettite). Glavine has his 2 Cy Youngs, his 20 win seasons, and one of the most clutch pitching performances in Game 6 of the 1995 World Series. He's a battler, a couple years back, he played without telling anybody about bruised ribs, saying that "Teams would try to bunt more on me," he's competitive. He's done the same thing this year with his shoulder and now has a slightly injured finger. But he continues to pitch. Even though he's struggled a bit early, look for him to make adjustments and get the job done. Glavine also has been with the Braves through the 1991 season when he, Smoltz, and Avery were thrown into the rotation to lead the Braves to their first world series and win the Cy Young. He should get into Cooperstown.

Now maybe in a couple years we can say the same about Pettite. But right now, in my opinion, Glavine has been the better pitcher.
