Check out my latest Mets Geek column, where I argue in favor of signing Derek Lowe over Oliver Perez. I think it's pretty clear Lowe is the better pitcher, even for the next 3-4 years. I'm dreading a scenario where the Braves sign Lowe for 4 years, $56 million, then the Mets lock up Ollie for 4 years, $52 million.
***EDIT***: Well Lowe signed with the Braves for 4 years, $60 million. This is bad news for so many reasons. More to come later.
