Thoughts on a one Mr. Lowe...

Postby Jester » Wed Jul 14, 2004 2:44 pm

Second half thoughts? Hey you Boston fans, any paticular reason he's been so bad, and any hope of him getting out of it...
I ask because he was just dropped and I picked him up, hoping for the best, just thought I'd see what you guys thought.

He's looked a little bit better of late but I think it's simply a head case thing although he has sworn that is not true. He recently got fired up at some reporters who keep asking him what's wrong with his head. He said he is simply not pitching well and needs to work it out. At least he showed some emotion other than that don't really know what to tell you.

he gets extremely upset on the mound at times and sometimes he has a hard time controlling it which then makes him lose focus. Its very much like his last season he was the closer

The Mets have been scouting Lowe hard. The papers have theorized that the Mets and Red Sox could be in trade negotiations for him. Just rumors but the Mets scouting his last three games is fact.

Peterson thinks it's a mechanical flaw not a mental one. At least that's the theory why the Mets are after him so hard. The Red Sox have since backed off their eagerness to trade him.

Just an interesting tidbit of info. ;-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Send him to the Mets for some prospects. Stick McCarty in the rotation.. I mean hey, he can't be that worse off right?

It looks like the trade won't happen now. The Red Sox seemed eager to trade him and then all of a sudden backed off (according to the papers). His last outing was very good so it makes me wonder if BOS found the "flaw". Or maybe I'm just reading to much into it. ;-)
