Braves Sign Derek Lowe

To a four-year, $60 million deal, ESPN reports.

Lowe's a very good, durable pitcher, but this strikes me as a lot of money to pay a guy who's 35 and not a superstar. This signing is consistent with what Ryan Dempster and A.J. Burnett got, but at this price I'd probably rather take a chance on a cheaper deal for an older pitcher, like the Giants did with Randy Johnson
