Lowe Signs with Braves

Chipper Jones wasn't a happy camper when the Braves didn't do anything about "Smoltzy", letting him sign with the Boston Red Sox. Despite the loss of John Smoltz, Chipper has cooled down a little bit now that the Braves signed Derek Lowe.

Weeks after turning down an offer from the New York Mets, Lowe signed with their division rivals, the Atlanta Braves. The deal is 4 years worth $60 million.

Lowe, 35, spent the last 4 seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Last season, Lowe was 14-11 with a 3.24 ERA. Lowe also spent time with the Boston Red Sox, where he won a World Series.

In his career, Lowe, a ground ball pitcher, is 126-107 with a 3.75 ERA and a.27 WHIP. In the postseason, Lowe is 5-5 with a 3.33 ERA in 21 games.

Ah shit, I have memories of Lowe killin' the Phils (3.02 career ERA).

I guess the Braves wanted to make sure Kelly Johnson wouldn't fuck up by signing a ground ball pitcher.
