From the Wire….Lowe Agrees to Terms with the Braves

According to reports from and XM Radio, the Atlanta Braves agreed to terms with Derek Lowe on a four-year, $60 million contract on Tuesday. Lowe was 14-11 last season for the Dodgers with a 3.24 ERA and was 6-1 down the stretch with a 1.27 ERA.

The Cubs were connected to Derek Lowe through the rumor mill this off-season.

Jim Hendry reportedly remains interested in going outside of the organization to add another starter to the Cubs rotation before the season. Sean Marshall is the leading internal candidate to take the spot vacated when the Cubs dealt Jason Marquis to the Rockies.

Quote of the Day

You can’t create magic … don’t deserve magic until you play the game properly. It shouldn’t come your way. And, it won’t come your way. But, if you play the game properly, then all of a sudden, these little things start rolling in your direction and you start expecting them to happen on a daily basis because you’ve earned it.” – Joe Maddon
