Pat Gillick expected more movement at the winter meetings this week, and remains optimistic there will be. He might even be part of it. The Phillies and Los Angeles Dodgers have met at least twice this week at the Wyndham Anatole Hotel, and are expected to meet again today. The teams have discussed a deal that would send rightfielder Bobby Abreu and possibly third baseman David Bell to the Dodgers for Derek Lowe or Brad Penny, both pitchers. "We've got one trade talk going that could be a higher-level guy" for the rotation, but most of the deals "would be lower-level," the Phils' general manager said.

What we're talking about following the Phillies' win over the Dodgers: -- Pat Burrell, a notoriously streaky hitter, could be getting hot at just the right time. After hitting a pair of homers in the Phillies' NLDS-clinching win at Milwaukee on Sunday, he belted a game-winning shot off Dodgers starter Derek Lowe into the left-centerfield seats in the sixth. -- The Phillies have been waiting for second baseman Chase Utley to start contributing in the postseason. After punching a single up the middle in the first, he turned on a pitch from Derek Lowe in the sixth and knocked it out of the park for the game-tying homer.

Excerpt from a post by David Murphy on the Daily News Phillies blog, High Cheese, at go.philly.com/highcheese: THE PHILLIES got a taste of Derek Lowe in the playoffs last season. Now, they will get to see plenty more of him this season as the Atlanta Braves finalized a 4-year, $60 million agreement with the veteran righthander. It is now apparent why the Phillies never seemed to be serious players for Lowe, despite their interest in bringing the sinker-baller to the friendly confines of Citizens Bank Park.

  With ace Tim Hudson and veteran Derek Lowe going in the first two games, the pitching matchups heavily favor the Braves. Atlanta is hoping the small meniscus tear in Jair Jurrjens' right knee holds up Sunday after he was scratched from Monday's start in Philadelphia.   The Rockies are 51-24 at home and put themselves in a must-win-two-out-of-three situation with a poor showing against last-place Arizona. Ace Ubaldo Jimenez lost to the Diamondbacks on Wednesday and will not pitch against the Giants, who will send Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain to the mound in Colorado.

Scrap the clubhouse speeches Manny Ramirez, Derek Lowe and Joe Torre would have been making if the Phillies had won Game 3 about how the 2004 Red Sox came back from a three-game deficit to beat Torre's Yankees and reach the World Series. The Dodgers took Game 3, and if they win today behind No. 1 pitcher Derek Lowe, the seven-game National League Championship Series becomes a best-of-three. The Dodgers won the way they often have lately, with a team that does not much resemble the injury-ridden club that struggled to score earlier in the season.

It had become difficult to imagine Cliff Lee actually losing a game for the Phillies. Since he took a no-hitter into the sixth inning in his team debut, Lee has looked virtually invincible. But baseball always humbles those players who appear temporarily above failure. Last night was Lee's turn to look human, as the lefthander lost his first game after five wins for the Phils, 9-1 to Atlanta, in a contest delayed twice by rain and called in the middle of the eighth. In five innings, Lee allowed six runs and three homers - the most home runs he had surrendered in a game in more than two years.

It took a win over the New York Yankees to convince former All-Star closer Derek Lowe that he belongs as a starter for the Boston Red Sox, even though he came within six outs of a no-hitter two weeks ago. "This is probably the best game I've pitched," Lowe said after Boston's 4-3 victory over the visiting Yankees yesterday. "It was a test for me. " Lowe (2-1) struck out a career-high nine, allowing one run on two hits and one walk in seven innings. By holding on in a tense ninth inning to win their annual Patriots Day game, the Red Sox took three of four from the four-time defending American League champions and finished their series leading the East by a half-game over New York.

WHEN IT WAS announced that Dodgers pitcher Derek Lowe would start the fourth game of the National League Championship Series on just 3 days rest, there was enough "he's a warrior/gamer/bad dude" verbiage to choke a clich?-spewing horse. Oh yeah, they also called him a horse. "He's a competitor," said Dodgers manager Joe Torre before the game. "I think when you're managing a club and you start talking about soldiers in the foxhole, he's one of those guys. You can run statistics out but I think the type of player and the type of pitcher that you want in games in October are Derek Lowe-type guys.

Manny Ramirez never moved, just watched it go. Pat Burrell's sixth-inning shot landed just past the flower bed in left field, in the front row. Ramirez had no doubts about its resting place. Neither did Derek Lowe, cursing to himself, again. After leaving a pitch up to Chase Utley, the Dodgers' starter had left another up to Burrell. It was his last pitch of the game. "Oh, yeah, they were up," Phillies batting coach Milt Thompson said in the clubhouse last night after the 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series.

With the injuries to the Atlanta Braves staff, righthander Derek Lowe should become even more vital in the postseason. That has to give Braves fans cause for concern after his performance in Monday's 9-0 loss to the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. It wasn't just Monday's showing but a seasonlong bout of inconsistency that makes Lowe a major question mark. Known for his ability to be an innings-eater, Lowe allowed seven runs (five earned) in five innings, walking four and striking out four in the opening of a three-game series.

Atlanta's McDowell placed on administrative leave We think Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell , a noted prankster, is not laughing now. The club placed him on administrative leave Friday while it investigates allegations that he was crude and brutish toward fans last Saturday in San Francisco. Specifically, he made homophobic comments toward three men during batting practice and made graphic gestures with a bat. When another fan, Justin Quinn , complained that his 9-year-old girls were in the stands, McDowell, bat in hand, walked up to Quinn and barked: "How much are your teeth worth?"

It wasn't the kind of debut Jayson Werth expected. His Washington Nationals opened their season by getting shut out by 37-year-old Derek Lowe and the Atlanta Braves, 2-0, with soon-to-be-39-year-old Chipper Jones scoring the deciding run in front of a non-sellout Nationals Park crowd. Werth, batting second, singled in his first at-bat, struck out in the third inning, and grounded out to shortstop in the sixth and eighth innings to finish 1-for-4. The spotlight yesterday was expected to be on the former Phillie, who signed a 7-year, $126 million contract to play in Washington.

Going into his 11th major-league season, Vicente Padilla has earned an accolade he's never experienced - being the Opening Day starter. Padilla will get the nod for the Los Angeles Dodgers in their opener April 5 at Pittsburgh, 5 months after a gunshot wound to his leg nearly ended his career. Manager Joe Torre said yesterday that Padilla's performance in the playoffs last season helped land him the spot. "I'm very happy he had the confidence for me to pitch the first game," Padilla said through a translator.

Casey Kotchman hit a three-run homer and centerfielder Nate McLouth made a pair of great catches in the sixth inning when starter Derek Lowe began to tire, lifting the visiting Atlanta Braves to a 10-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers yesterday. "It was a good series," said McLouth, a Gold Glove winner with the Pirates last season. "All these games are big the rest of the season, but when there are teams that are right there in the wild card [race] with us and you have a chance to move ahead of a team or separate from teams, it makes them that much more important.

Andruw Jones, a $36.2 million bust with the Los Angeles Dodgers, was released by the team yesterday. Heralded as the answer to the Dodgers' power void when he signed his 2-year contract in December 2007, Jones was injured part of last season and was mostly ineffective otherwise, hitting only .158 with three home runs and 14 RBI in 75 games. The 31-year-old centerfielder, a 10-time Gold Glove winner, reported to spring training overweight, had knee surgery in May and finished the year on the bench.

The Atlanta Braves reached a preliminary agreement yesterday on a $60 million, 4-year contract with righthander Derek Lowe, according to a person familiar with the negotiations. The deal is subject to Lowe passing a physical, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the contract had not been completed. Atlanta also finalized a 3-year contract with Japanese all-star pitcher Kenshin Kawakami. A 14-game winner for the Dodgers in 2008, Lowe visited the Braves last week after longtime Atlanta pitcher John Smoltz agreed to a $5.5 million, 1-year deal with the Boston Red Sox. Lowe, who also was sought by the rival New York Mets, would be a huge addition to a rotation devastated by injuries in 2008.
