Without Lowe, Mets May Have Lost NL East

Today, the Atlanta Braves signed star pitcher Derek Lowe for a 4-year, 60 million dollar contract. The Mets were desperately trying to get Lowe, and with him going to the Braves the Mets have their work cut out for them.

Since your theory is the Mets have lost the NL East and they haven't played a game yet, so are you handing the trophy to the Yankees since they have spent the National debt on pitching? The games have not been played yet. The man is a risk at 36 years old and I don't blame he and Boras for going after all the money they can get. But I don't blame the Mets for spending this kind of money on a pitcher of this caliber. Lowe does not guarantee a championship.
