Derek Lowe Wants To Be A Red Sox, Again
Posted by Mike on December 1, 2008
While the list of teams interested in Lowe may be long, his list of preferred teams is far shorter. Boston, for sure, is high atop it.
“It’s pretty easy to figure them out if you just sit back and go over the teams in baseball who win on a consistent basis,” said Lowe. “If your No. 1 goal is to win, I would say there’s only a handful of teams year in and year out that have a chance to win. Now, there are no guarantees, but there are teams who have a better chance than others.”
“Yeah, all because of what I just outlined,” he said. “Even if I’d never played there. And I don’t look at it as coming back, I look at it as who has the best chance to win? And they clearly do.
“If you’re looking four or five years down the line, they fit the criteria of what I’m looking for. It’s not just the fact I played there – but, yeah, there were a lot of things I enjoyed – but they’re definitely a franchise that has a chance to win.”
