Schmidt (great team, great pitcher's park)
Vazquez (unbelievable strikeouts, very few walks)
Pineiro (on a solid team, good pitcher's park)
Perez (good pitcher's park)
Lowe (hasn't done anything all season, has given up 5 earned runs in 2 innings tonight)

If someone will give you another top 20 or so pitcher for him, I'd do it. I think he was lucky and peaked last year and will likely only be about a 15 game winner with a 4.00 ERA and be maddeningly inconsistent.

Things are strange in the world of Derek Lowe.

All of his numbers are off from last year. He's allowing more H/9 IP (11.7 to 6.8), and more BB/9 IP (4.3 to 2.0). His control is not there like it's been in the past.

Last year he threw 219.2 innings, the previous 2 years he threw around 90 and his career high was 123 back in 1998. Maybe he's feeling the effects of a career-high in innings pitched.

I'd say, try to trade him and see what you can get for him. Problem is, he's at his lowest value at the moment.

They mentioned on ESPN that h'es been good at home (2-0, 0.95 ERA) terrible on the road (1-2, 11.12 ERA heading into tonight's game in Minnesota). His next 2 starts should be at home against Anaheim (9th in runs scored in the AL) and Cleveland (13th in runs scored in the AL). You could keep him for those 2 starts and see if he can continue to do well at home (plus he should be able to shut down Cleveland), then try to trade him before he faces the Yankees at Yankee Stadium in the start after that.
