UPDATE (3:20 p.m.): Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports says the reason the Phils are going strong after Lowe is because they might be slipping in re-signing Jamie Moyer
Tony Massarotti of the Boston Globe reports the Phillies have made an offer for free agent right-handed pitcher Derek Lowe.
Massarotti added a second team has offered a contract, but the team is neither the Yankees nor the Red Sox. Both are expected to meet with Scott Boras — Lowe’s agent — either today or tomorrow.
In October, Lowe told Nick Cafardo of the Globe that the Red Sox were at the top of his list, as he wanted to join a team committed to winning. Obviously the Phillies fit that bill, too.
