Derek Lowe Designated for Assignment by Indians - Are You Thinking What I'm Thinking?

Late Wednesday night, Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Derek Lowe was designated for assignment.  Lowe is 8-10 on the season with a 5.52 ERA.

Combine the Red Sox number one and number two starters in Jon Lester and Josh Beckett.  Totaled up, they sport a 10-17 record and an average ERA of 5.20.  This is a no-brainer, kids.

A hero of the 2004 World Championship team, Lowe needs to return to Boston.  It would give the fans, and maybe even the rotation, that energy that it lacks.  That energy that you're not going to get from Craig Breslow.  And try to tell me Lowe wouldn't get that spark back pitching every fifth day in front of the Fenway Faithful.

Sox general manager Ben Cherington completely dropped the ball at the trade deadline.  Rumor has it, Sox owner John Henry is over in London for the Olympics, and wasn't even in the States on July 31st.  This is your chance, Red Sox.  Wake up and get Derek Lowe back in Beantown.
