Derek Lowe: ‘I’m playing [golf] tomorrow’

Derek Lowe can feel Josh Beckett‘€™s pain.

‘€œOh, I’€™ve been there,’€ the Indians starter said following his team’€™s 8-3 win over the Red Sox Thursday night at Fenway Park.

‘€œI was telling a couple of guys, I remember in ‘€™01, I was closing. I blew a three-run game in like literally 30 seconds and it happened to be they gave out my posters that day. Well, they turned into airplanes really fast. There was a 10-minute delay. They stopped the game. The whole nine yards. I sat in the clubhouse until 2 o’€™clock and I’€™d stick my head out to see if I could leave yet, and they would still be standing there saying, ‘€˜I see you in there!’€™ Yeah, so no, I’€™ve seen worse. It’€™s happened to me.

‘€œWhen you play here, you understand that’€™s part of it. If you go out there and probably don’€™t pitch the way you would like, they’€™re going to let you know about it.’€

The former Red Sox pitcher’€™s reaction was in regard to questions about Beckett’€™s current state, which most recently included a 2 1/3-inning, seven-run outing. This comes, of course, after a day of controversy following news the Sox’€™ starter had golfed on the day after it was announced he was scratched from his May 5 start.

‘€œI’€™m not going to get into that. I don’€™t play for that team,’€ Lowe said. ‘€œI have no idea what’€™s going on with that situation. But I do golf. Yes, I do golf. I’€™m playing tomorrow.’€
