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

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.

This discussion reminds me of an article in The New Bill James Historical Abstract called "The Death of Common Sense in Baseball". It happens to be included in the searchable section of the book on amazon, and the link to that is at: http:
