Lowe signs a (ridiculous) 4 year, $60M deal with the Braves (

Congrats ATL, here's your consolation prize. I mean, as much as I'm glad to see him leave the NL West, is he REALLY a fifteen million dollar pitcher? You know you're getting probably 16-13 3.50-ish for that price. Granted, he does have quite a knack of dodging the DL, but how long can that hold up in his upper 30s?

At least the Braves finally have a pitcher they can rely on to take the ball every 5th day. I like Lowe, winning 3 close-out games in '04 will never be forgotten, but he is at best a #2 and probably a #3 pitcher on a good team. Just don't pitch him in day games when the night before they forecast rain. The results aren't pretty.

I was listening to "Low" by Cracker on the radio when I looked at a headline about this signing earlier today. No joke.

And that IS a lot of dough/years to throw at a pitcher in his mid-30's.

This is the second time (first being Ibanez) that a player the Mets were considering went to a rival in the division and I was actually glad because I didn't want them. Now the Mets can focus on Oliver Perez who I would rather have.
