    For the record, it is indeed Derek Lowe, and he's expected to work out of the pen. Presumably he will fill the gaping hole left behind when Chad Qualls departed.

    At least I don't hate Lowe on a level I did Ponson. And if they are going to use Lowe only out of the pen in long relief I don't have a problem with the pickup. If they use him to setup or start though instead of low leverage or last man in the pen thing, I won't be happy.

    Re: We picked up Lowe

    I would imagine he'd be in the pen as a long man in place of Phelps whom they could move into CC's spot.

    Re: We picked up Lowe

    Phelps isn't stretched out and probably will be limited to 50 pitches...Rangers strategy will be to just get into deep counts with Phelps til we throw in Lowe. Only good thing about Lowe is he is a ground ball pitcher that's about it
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    Re: We picked up Lowe

    People need to calm down. Derek Lowe will be an ex-Yankee on August 23. This is for two starts only. Is he a bad pitcher? Yes. Does this mean we are doomed? Hardly.

    Re: We picked up Lowe

    perfect post from MLB:

    It really grinds my gears when fans bash a move without knowing the parameters of the deal first. Lowe is going to the Yankees to take Phelps' spot in the bullpen. Phelps has earned his spot in the rotation and will be making the starts. Lowe is a bullpen replacement for Phelps from all reports/indications. For all the trolls bashing this move, the Yankees just added a very playoff experienced arm to their bullpen. No harm, no foul. Get well soon CC!

    Lowe isn't even starting. ESPN reporting David Phelps starting Monday.

    If that playoff experienced bullpen arm is used in high leverage situations and ultimately finds himself on the postseason roster due to that experience, then yes, there's the possibility of harm.

    And he will be used in high leverage situations because Girardi can't help himself.

    Lulz at "playoff experience". Lowe hasn't been a decent pitcher since 2008. Scott Proctor has playoff experience. Maybe we should sign him again too.
    David Ortiz tested positive for performance enhancing drugs in 2003.

    He pitched two games in the 2010 NLDS.

    First game- 5.1 IP, 4 hits, 1 ER-- team loses 1-0.

    Second game- 6.1 IP, 2 hits, 3 R (2 ER)-- team loses 3-2.

    So 11.2 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, two L's on his post-season record.

    That's rough.

    I screwed up the total IP. Fixed now. I also added the hits.

    BTW, he had 14Ks in those 11.2 innings.
