Prediction: Derek Lowe Will Be a Cub

12

From the NY Post "Derek Lowe contributed out of the bullpen and evolved into a clubhouse presence in his short stint with the Yankees. And though he enjoyed playing for the other side of the heated Red Sox-Yankees rivalry, the right-hander’s wish to be a starter likely won’t lead him back to The Bronx. "I would like to start again," the 39-year-old Lowe said of the role he filled for the Indians this season before being released. "I knew when I came here I was going to be a reliever. My first priority is to start."" The guy wants to start, but no contending team is likely to want to take a chance on him. The Cubs sign him with both parties understanding that if he is any good, the Cubs will flip him at the deadline. This is my prediction, put here so that I can refer to it if this actually happens and amaze you all with my prognosticating abilities. If it doesn't happen, well, nobody will ever remember this post.
