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
