Could Yankees trade for Lowe?

Posted on: December 14, 2009 5:52 pm
Now that John Lackey is headed to the Red Sox, and now that Roy Halladay is headed to the Phillies, and now that Cliff Lee is headed to the Mariners, where does Derek Lowe go?

How about the Yankees?

The Yankees want a fourth starter to go with CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett and Andy Pettitte, and they have hitters who could interest the Braves. The two teams have talked, and while it's not certain that a Lowe deal has been discussed, it would make sense.

Lowe also makes sense for the Angels, who have lost out on both Halladay and Lackey, their two top targets. Outfielder Juan Rivera would be "a nice start" to a package for Lowe, according to someone familiar with the two teams.

The Mariners have also shown interest in Lowe, but now that they are set to get Lee, they would seem to have less motivation to make a trade.

The Braves began the offseason exploring deals for either Lowe or Javier Vazquez, but sources said that they are now much more focused on dealing Lowe than Vazquez. Vazquez, in any case, would be a tough deal to make for the Angels, because of the pitcher's strong preference to stay on the East Coast.

The Braves are willing to pay some of Lowe's salary ($45 million over the next three years), depending on the players they get in the trade.

Like I said, a used fungo bat and the Braves pay 2/3 of his salary. I's still rather have Sheets on an incentive laden deal, and then there's always the all-star break if we need someone. Lowe should not be in pinstripes, period.

i am thinking something like nick swisher and juan miranda will get the job done for lowe. the braves get a player in swisher that can fill essentially any void the braves have, he can play anywhere in the outfield and first base and miranda gives you a solid bat off the bench and could probably play first or corner outfield positions. then the yankees could sign holliday or bay, preferably holliday, could play the outfield with granderson and melky and damon could DH. imagine that lineup and rotation:
Jeter, Granderson, Tex, Arod, Holliday, Posada, Damon, Cano, Melky, w/ Brett Gardner, Ramiro Pena, Francisco Cervelli and Jamie Hoffman on the benchwouldnt that be incredible
CC, AJ, Pettitte, Lowe and Joba/Hughes and in the pen: Mo, Ace, Hughes/Joba, Damaso Marte, Chad Gaudin, David Robertson and either Michael Dunn or Mark Melanconlooks good to me
all that equals a DYNASTY

By the way, Miranda and Swisher is too much for Lowe. The Braves would be raping the Yankees if that were the offer.

Let's leave Lowe in Atlanta.

Wow if you think the Angels are going to get Derek Lowe, your out of your mind. First of all, the Yankees will because they've been known to counter Boston signings.Really?...

Just to let you know, the Yankees are not "known to counter Boston's signings." 
 The Yankees are already pissed about losing Halladay, Lee, and LackeyNo, they are not! But I'm glad we have someone like you in the front office of the Yankees organization, to give us such great factual information.

why would they pass on this opportunity considering that Derek Lowe is the only pitcher out there close to John Lackey type statisticsThat might be a stretch. Besides, I think a healthy Sheets is better than Lackey, now and career wise. I would even take it a step further and put Bedard in that conversation too. Not career wise, but right now, if healthy, I would think that Bedard is better than Lackey. And with Sheets, we wouldn't have to trade anyone and we wouldn't have to pay that much per year on him.
 If the Yankees pull of a Derek Lowe, how do you think the Red Sox fans will feel?They would be ecstatic. Not only would we have to give up Swisher or a couple prospects, but he would get crushed in the AL East. The Sox fans would love us to get him, so they can tee off on him.

so why would Derek Lowe stay on a home-town discount in Atlanta or with the Angels?"Hometown discount?" I didn't know Lowe was from Atl or LA...

By the way, he already signed a huge deal last year. That in my opinion, he is not worth. By you saying "hometown discout" would imply he's signing an extension or signing as a pending FA, to his hometown. 

Do you kind of see how that doesn't make sense?...Surprised or no?...

The Angels don't have enough money now since they signed a second DH considering they already have one and now have to worry about cutting costs.Arty Mareno and the Angels have plenty of money.

By the way, who is the Angels other DH? If you are referring to Vlad, he's a FA.

I see Derek Lowe in a Yankee uniform if the Braves decide to ship him away.
I don't and hopefully it doesn't happen. I think that would be a terrible idea.

 I mean the Yankees have the money and prospects,
Yup, both of which they have better things to do with.

Ozzy, get a grip or a clue.

Lets run down the Yanks 09 World Series roster...Posada-homegrownTex-FA signingCano-homegrownJeter-homegrow

nARod-Trade w Texas RangersDamon-FA signingMelky-HomegrownSwisher-Trade

w White SoxMolina-Trade w AnaheimGardner-homegrownHairston-Tr

ade w CincinattiPena-homegrownCC-FA signingAJ-FA signingPettitte-homegrownHughes-hom

egrownJoba-homegrownMarte-Trade w Pittsburgh PiratesMariano-homegrownAceves-home

Im missing a couple of guys who I cant think of off the top of my head...but look at that, out of the players I listed the Yankees have 12 homegrown players, 5 players aquired via trade, and 5 free agent signings. Looks to me like over half the roster was built internally. So before people go saying that the Yankees buy World Series, keep in mind this was their first since 2000. Also, just because we have the highest payroll doesnt mean we buy championships. Guys like Jeter, Posada, Mariano, Pettitte, etc all happen to be highly paid athletes, but they werent when the first started. You better believe Cano will get a big fat paycheck when his FA time comes too. SO SUCK ON THIS ----->  8O

And this has what to do with the thread/story title?...You know, the little bolded words at the top of your text box...
