After a league switch, Derek Lowe took a retro approach to pitching. So far, it's working.

I’m normally not a big fan of blind Player X/Player Y comparisons. I can’t stand the suspense. In this case, though, I picked the players, so I already know who they are. You already know who one of them is if you read the title of this piece, but let’s pretend it’s still a surprise:

(If you're ever thinking life is being unfair to you, just remember that Trouppe was not in the majors and Greek George--another Christmas baby catcher--was.) Aside from the Negro Leagues, he also played extensively in the Mexican League where he excelled. He finally got a cup of coffee with the Indians in 1952 at the age of 39. Earlier this year, Baseball Think Factory had a fairly long thread discussing the merits of his career. Trouppe is not one of the 30 Negro League players eligible on the ballot currently before the Hall of Fame.
