The Braves traded Derek Lowe to the Indians yesterday for minor league pitcher. The Braves will pay Lowe $10 million of the $15 million he is owed in 2012.This is bad news for the Phils. The drunk-driving home-wrecker was 1-4 with a 5.14 ERA against the Fightins last year. He would have been a great asset for the Phillies by pitching for the Braves next season. Instead, he'll help the Tigers win the AL Central.It's also bad for bloggers like myself because I lose the chance to make fun of his ridiculous behavior.In other drunk-driver news, Tony LaRussa retired.
