The Atlanta Braves went where the Mets wouldn’t, four years for Derek Lowe. Multiple media reports have the Braves agreeing to a deal with Lowe for 4-years/$60 million. That’s way beyond the Mets reported offer of 3-years/$36 million so I have to assume there were other teams bidding for the Braves to go that high.
The Mets are left to work on Oliver Perez, Randy Wolf, and Ben Sheets. I don’t mind seeing Lowe sign somewhere else, I just wish it wasn’t in the Mets division.
