Indians DFA Derek Lowe

As a Braves fan, this amuses me way more than it should. The Indians have designated starting pitcher Derek Lowe for assignment.

Shake-up Coming to the Tribe Rotation After Another Dismal Start

The bottom of the seventh inning included a conversation between Underwood and Manning which eventually made its way around to “sometimes the best trade you can make is not to make one.” Um, not in this case boys.
