Bad News for Phillies, Bloggers

The Braves traded Derek Lowe to the Indians yesterday for a minor league pitcher. The Braves will pay Lowe $10 million of the $15 million he is owed in 2012.

This is bad news for the Phils. The drunk-driving home-wrecker was 1-4 with a 5.14 ERA against the Fightins last year. He would have been a great asset for the Phillies by pitching for the Braves next season. Instead, he'll help the Tigers win the AL Central.

It's also bad for bloggers like myself because I lose the chance to make fun of his ridiculous behavior.

In other drunk-driver news, Tony LaRussa retired.

Screw LaRussa and Lowe.

And with La Russa's retirement, the average length of baseball games plummets an hour.

this is a sad, sad day for fans of National League drunk drivers. Who will we look to when we need someone run over?

I'm predicting a Hanley Ramirez drunk driving episode within the next calendar year.

Corey. 20 regular season games Trachsel started vs St Louis.

Average Inning Pitched into. 5.95

Average Game Time 2:56

Rain shortened games were offset by extra inning games.
