On top of everything else - today is Derek Lowe's birthday (he turned 31). Imagine spending your birthday knowing that everyone in the town you work in is talking about how bad you suck.
Is it me or is the Derek Lowe story starting to resemble a Greek tragedy? The only question is what Greek God did he offend so to cause this cursed season? Zeus? Apollo? Poseiden? Aphrodite? Youkilis?
