The Real Lowe?

Postby warrick95 » Sun Jul 20, 2003 5:14 pm

As we all know, Derek Lowe kicked major ass last year, turning in a Cy Young award like performance. What's been up with him this year? Is this more reflective of how good he really is (top 25), or the top 10 pitcher that he was last year. His last few starts have been good or bad depending on the team he's played. Lowe's been ripped by the Jays twice recently. Batters are hitting .288 against him and his ERA is near 5. Do y'all think Lowe will turn it around to around with a great 2nd half, or are we gonna see more of what's been happening.

I think he was lucky and probably pitched over his head last season. However, I also don't think he's anywhere near as bad as he's been this year. I would suspect that he will have about a 3.80 ERA and 8 wins the rest of the way. He's about a top 20, top 25 pitcher, but clearly not a top 10 pitcher as he appeared last year.
