The feeding frenzy is on in Boston. It's open season on Derek Lowe!
Yes - Lowe has been lousy for the Red Sox.
Yes - he has the second worst ERA among starters in the American League.
Yes - it looks like he may start to weep after almost every base hit.
Yes - all his indicator statistics have been trending downward the past two years and any thoughts of returning to his 2002 form have been completely forgotten.
Yes - it would take 41 consecutive scoreless innings to get his ERA down to Pedro's 3.82.
Yes - he was foolish to turn down the Red Sox offseason offer of three-years and $27 million.
No - the Red Sox don't really have any option but to see him through this tough time.
No - the Red Sox won't be making a new offer to Lowe and he will be gone after the iseason.
No - I don't think any Red Sox fans can find a silver lining in this situation.
