I’ve yet to read any credible and/or detailed report regarding the Chicago Cubs and free agent pitcher Derek Lowe. Additionally, for a variety of reasons, the Cubs don’t make a ton of sense as a destination for Lowe. So take this blurb with a huge grain of salt – but we’re duty-bound to report every Cubs rumor, no matter how specious or unlikely.

MLB Trade Rumors cites a Baseball Prospectus article with a prediction that the Cubs are one of Derek Lowe’s three primary suitors, and/or (that’s two and/or’s in one post, shame on me… eek, that’s three!) likely destinations. Shrug. I don’t think it’s likely, but we’ll keep listening for any more buzz on Lowe.

Update: Apparently the Braves have come through with an offer for Lowe that may have topped the Mets’ 3 year, $36 million existing offer.
