Another spring training tradition: familiar faces in new uniforms.
Derek, who apparently had a pact with opposing starter Bronson Arroyo to throw one another only fastballs, gave up a base hit to the Cornrowed One. Which, if you think about it, is doubly laughable since the sinking fastball is Lowe's pitch, while Bronson's is that loopy curve.
I have to say it's much funnier to see the Derek Lowe Face when it's a meaningless game...and he's on the other team.
If you want to follow Derek's progress in L.A., I recommend you do so through the ultra-hilarious Dodger Blues website, which had this to say about Lowe's initial arrival at Dodger camp:
Lowe, who signed a $36 million contract with the Dodgers this offseason, showed up only because he was physcially booted from the Red Sox spring training complex where he had been working out. Lowe had hope to make it through March without being noticed, even conjuring up a plan to steal Trot Nixon's uniform and dump the Boston outfielder in the Atlantic Ocean. Foiled in his attempt, Lowe will now have to settle for being a Dodger. As the old saying goes, you can take a player away from Boston, but you can't take away his Red Sox underpants. (Jim Tracy already tried, and it wasn't pretty--neither the confrontation or the underpants.)
