Get Lowe?

News Item: Phillies make offer for Derek Lowe

I love this idea, for several reasons. Sure, Lowe is 35- but that's 11 years younger than the alternative (Jamie Moyer.) He's a ground ball pitcher (great for the ballpark), has experience in both big markets and sports-mad East Coast cities, has excelled in the playoffs, and has never been injured in his life.

Will they outbid the Yankees? Maybe, maybe not. If they don't, it's because they're too cheap. Man, with that attitude this team will NEVER win the World Series.

Who should they NOT sign? How about A.J. Burnett. Gee, five years and $80 million for a guy who's injured as often as he's healthy? Where do I sign up?
