Derek Lowe was stopped by Georgia State Patrol law enforcement for racing another car on Peachtree Road in Buckhead, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Mike Morris. No word on who he was racing his Porsche against, but we'll hope it wasn't John Rocker. As was hypothesized last week while discussing a photo of Chipper Jones deer hunting, most evidence suggests that all Braves players eventually just turn into one shade or another of Rocker. Welcome, D-Lowe.
Lowe was reportedly driving a 2011 Panamera, the same model as the one A.J. Green now drives. We know he wasn't racing Green, who was a little busy and in New York Thursday night. The unidentified competition was charged with reckless driving, but not redneckless driving, am I right!
This story just went from plain-old disappointing and concerning and so forth to pretty thrilling.
