The Braves wouldn’t be playing Thursday without him

Too bad the innovator Jerry Glanville isn't coaching this squad!

If you had told me a month ago that D-Lowe would be starting Game 1 of the NLDS, I would’ve gone Beau Bock on Bobby. But who’s complaining now?

Lowe was named NL pitcher of the month, and deservedly so:5 wins in in 5 starts, 29 K’s, 3 BB in 30.2 innings pitched. Without him we’d be watching the Padres play the Phils — or not watching.

  1. Definitely would NOT be watching.

    This is what we paid him for.

    How many pitchers have won more games the past 2 seasons than Lowe? How many starts has he missed?

  4. I don’t remember him missing much, maybe one for a blister or something like that. Only 6 pitchers in all of MLB have more wins the last two years: Sabathia, Verlander, Wainwright, Carpenter, Halladay, and Arroyo. Pretty fair company for someone who hasn’t been given much credit for a job well done.

  5. He hasn’t deserved much credit for most of his time in Atlanta. Mediocrity doesn’t merit kudos.

  6. He’s not an ace, but he eats innings and keep you in the game most outings. He is probably overpaid and overrated, but he is essential to this team.
