I don't care the man was one of the biggest reasons we won in 2004


But from all accounts he has been a real jerk

Even though he was the hero of the playoffs and the World Series, Derek Lowe's off-field antics chiefly his drinking and womanizing doomed his chances to remain with the Red Sox, sources say.
Lowe, who went to the Los Angeles Dodgers this season after the Sox showed no interest in re-signing him, just walked out on his wife of seven years and their three kids to move in with Left Coast TV sports gal Carolyn Hughes.

now there's an *******

and another thing, why such a big contract, he is a mediocre pitcher at most, i hate it when people look at postseasaon stats instead of the regular season stats, i.e. Carlos Beltran

2 things:

1. A womanizing baseball player??? UNHEARD OF!! Next you're gonna tell me that the moon landing was actually real!

2. His wife's name is "Trinka Lowe." That's funny to me for some reason...

I don't think this Hughes woman is anything to right home about appearance wise. She certainly isn't worth walking out on a wife and kids for, not that anyone is. Complete D-Bag.

One story that has been confirmed.

Last September in NY Lowe was supposed to pitch on a Saturday afternoon. Boston had closed to within 1 1/2 of the Yankees. However all the weather people said there was no way the game would be played. Lowe closed a NYC bar at 4 AM ( game was at 1 the next day )

It was

YANKEES 1ST: Jeter walked; Rodriguez singled to left [Jeter to
second]; Sheffield was called out on strikes; Matsui singled to
left [Jeter to third, Rodriguez to second]; Williams walked
[Jeter scored, Rodriguez to third, Matsui to second]; Posada
singled to center [Rodriguez scored, Matsui scored, Williams to
third]; Olerud reached on a fielder's choice [Posada to second];
Sierra forced Olerud (first to shortstop) [Williams scored,
Posada scored (unearned) (error by Cabrera)]; Cairo forced
Sierra (shortstop to second); 5 R, 3 H, 1 E, 1 LOB. Red Sox 0,
Yankees 5.

YANKEES 2ND: Jeter walked; Rodriguez singled to pitcher [Jeter
to third]; Lowe left game with injured leg; :angry:

The Derek Lowe-Carolyn Hughes Affairs-final


Hughes' cuckolded husband speaks; Hughes has pulled this before with Karl Malone

--Gene Ross





http://www.adultfyi.com/images/News/10965-1.jpgPorn Valley- In a story that everyone seems to be talking about except the mainstream media, Carolyn Hughes' ex-husband was on the air today. Hughes is the Fox Sports West reporter who's been carrying on an alleged affair with Dodger pitcher Derek Lowe behind Lowe's wife's back. www.adultfyi.com/read.aspx?ID=10948 (http://www.adultfyi.com/read.aspx?ID=10948)

The husband, Tommy Siboni, spoke to Tom Leykis on KLSX. 97.1 Tuesday afternoon. Leykis, who's finding it amusing that ESPN is now taking credit for a story that he and Ron Fineman originated last week, spoke to Trinka Lowe Monday night. Siboni said he didn't know it was Lowe but suspected that his ex-wife was carrying on either with a pitcher or a catcher.

"She went to spring training the end of February, the beginning of March just for the pitchers and catchers," said Siboni. "When she left she was in tears because she didn't want to leave me. When she came back she told me she didn't know if she could trust herself when she's on the road any more." Highes apparently told him that something came very close to happening. "And she didn't like that feeling. She said she didn't like to be put into those situations."

Asked what he did, Siboni said he got upset. "The weeks following that there was a lot of fighting and suspicions on my part. It was, like, who are you talking to? Are you still talking to this guy? She said yes. But he's married and it's not going to go anywhere from there. She still wouldn't tell me who it was." Siboni said he went into the bathroom to check on her cellphone and Hughes busted down the door, slapped him in the face and beat him up. "She tore my shirt off until I gave her back the phone," Siboni said, noting that this was the first incident of its kind.

"After that we got so crazy and out of hand that we both decided it was best to go separate ways." Siboni moved out and Hughes sold the house a month and a half later. Siboni was finally tipped off when Trinka Lowe called him about three weeks ago. "She said this is Derek Lowe's wife. As soon as I heard the name, she said Derek Lowe, I knew exactly what was going on. The whole story just came together. She told me what had happened that she followed him [Lowe] back to her [Hughes'] place. He's been driving her car. None of it really surprised me. I told her that. Once I heard that I said that must have been the guy from spring training."

Siboni said he works in a restaurant where a lot of people coming in are reporters and celebrities. "That's what I heard- that people suspected it since spring training. It all kind of came together." Siboni said he and Trinka Lowe spoke for a couple of hours one evening. "Whe we put our time lines together we realized they were both in the same cities at the same time. There were phone records and what not." According to what Trinka Lowe told him, Leykis said Hughes and Derek Lowe spoke five times a day. Siboni said Hughes would sneak off to make phone calls in her car.

"If there was nothing to hide, she wouldn't have to do that." Leykis said he was amazed at how many people around town knew of the affair. Siboni said he sees 400 or 500 people a night and hears about it all the time. "I said hey listen it' not my concern any more. That's her problem."

Leykis asked Siboni if he was surprised at media reluctance to touch the story. "The local news media is Fox," said Siboni. "And Fox doesn't want to expose this any more than what they have to. I'm sure the LA Times and Fox have some sort of relationship. It wouldn't surprise me that that's the reason why it's not being exposed." Leykis said there's something like four sports station in LA. "And they apparently have nothing to say about this, either." Siboni asked if two of those stations might be Fox-owned. Leykis said Fox doesn't own any radio stations. "Isn't it interesting that everyone's keeping their mouths shut when it comes to this particular story. When it comes to Jude Law screwing his nanny, that's perfectly okay to put in the paper. But for some reason people don't want to talk about this story."

Siboni said Hughes often told him that it makes her sick that married athletes would sleep around. Leykis said Trinka Lowe told him that Hughes has such a history. Siboni said it was true. "Before her and I were together I don't know anything there. But this is not the first time that something happened with her and I. It's always involved major athletes." Asked if he would care to share, Siboni said Karl Malone left a message at 11:30 at night.

"He said hey baby it's Karl. You're probably out in Los Angeles finding my replacement. So give me a call when you get a chance. I don't know what that meant." Siboni then asked Hughes about Kobe Bryant and Hughes never believed that happened. Hughes said she and Bryant were friends that she was there for him as he was going through some problems. "I said when did you become this major counselor?"

Siboni found out from Trinka Lowe that Derek Lowe and Hughes chartered a plane together to the All Star Game. "I knew she was going to the game. I knew she was doing that red carpet-thing. I had no idea he was going. I know he didn't make it. Then I heard that she ended up going to his friend's house and playing drinking games."

Asked if he ever met Derek Lowe, Siboni said no but that Lowe had come into his restaurant. "He came in our downtown location once but I was off. Trinka said he was in with Brad Penny one night."

Asked if he had any idea what he was in for when he married Hughes, Siboni said not in the least. "She was a wonderful woman. We had a lot in common. We had a lot of fun together. She became somebody I didn't know. That old saying you think you know someone. I was blindsided." From what he understands, Siboni believes that Hughes has been suspended until further notice. "I don't talk to her at all- the last I spoke to her was when I gave her a piece of mind the night Trinka called me." Siboni said he and Hughes don't have kids so it was easy to part ways. On the other hand, Siboni figured it would be a grueling process for Trinka Lowe.

http://www.sportsjournalists.com/forum/index.php/topic,14977.0.html

As I mentioned earlier, this is an absolute black eye to women in sports television in general, in particular the well known sportscasters I mentioned due to the fact that they all have had to face obstacles of being a woman in a "man's world," including hearing junk that all women reporters are looking to sleep with the athletes they cover. The consenus is that Hughes doing what she did set back women reporters significantly, and because of that, Fox should fire her IMMEDIATELY instead of just giving her a "vacation," and returning her to the role of host of that cheesy FSN Across America show next month.

Also, more importantly, I feel sorry for Trinka Lowe and her children, who are the real victims in this mess. Hopefully, they can all put their lives back together.

Just my two cents worth.

I normally enjoy your threads and tidbits, but this is a tabloid...
:whocares

He's moved on to LA. Lowe's not the only womanizing ballplayer who likes the sauce.

My father-in-law was in town visiting this weekend, he and his partner-for-life live in Haverhill, MA and he's a big Red Sox fan. I asked him if he had heard about this story. He hadn't heard of it, but his partner-for-life's daughter met Derek Lowe out at a bar. Said he was a complete scumbag.

He's a womanizer and a drunk? Big deal.

We've had Eck, Farnsworth, and Grace in this town. Next to mediocre pitching, the drunken man-whores are the best thing to come from the Cubs.

MINNEAPOLIS - Red Sox principal owner John W. Henry denied a published report from last week that indicated he had expressed dissatisfaction with Derek Lowe's personal life and instructed that the former Sox pitcher not be re-signed when he became a free agent last fall.


An item in the Herald's Inside Track last week reported that Henry was angered by Lowe allegedly showing up at a charity event last year with a woman who was not his wife and that the open philandering upset the owner so much that it sealed the right-hander's fate with the Sox. Lowe, who ended up signing a four-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers, has reportedly split with his wife due to his relationship with a West Coast television sports reporter.


Henry, via e-mail, denied that Lowe's personal life had anything to do with his status and that he had nothing to do with contract negotiations. He said that confusion resulted when his attempt to issue a denial through a spokesman was relayed as a ``no comment'' instead.


``The story is inaccurate,'' Henry said in his e-mail. ``The Inside Track asked for verification from the Red Sox and received a no comment. It's unfortunate the Red Sox did not deny the story in advance, but I believe the Red Sox rule or position is not to comment on players' personal lives in any way. That is understandable. I denied it immediately because it was untrue and further speculation that I somehow played a role in those contract negotiations (is) also untrue. The denial was not relayed to the Herald.''

Oh is that what the consensus is?

What one woman does (and in private, too) is not a reflection on all women. No other woman should have to answer for what one woman does (again, in private).

Any sportswriter who gossips in private this way is just a flat-out bigot, and an unprofessional one at that. They're just looking for ways to justify the prejudices they already have. They deride this woman for her lack of professionalism, yet they take an unprofessional interest in her private life.

But thanks for letting us know what those jerks are saying. A pity these manly men lack the balls to put a face to their backstabbing remarks.

Also, it's flat-out hypocritical, and they know it. They use the same mouth to justify any sort of sleazy, leering behavior on their part..."because they're men."

Also, please note:

"
....who's been carrying on an alleged affair

This person needs to attend at least one remedial writing class.
One does not "carry on an alleged affair". One allegedly carries
on an affair. There is a purpose to this sort of mischief...
a good writing instructor will tell you how (disingenuous) writers
manipulate words to make a notion sound more "assertive".

Word order is one of the keys to accomplishing that.

Really, I thought we here were above this sort of gossipy trash.
When has it ever worked to our benefit?
