Man, no sooner does Ben Schwartz lower the boom (by proxy) on Randy Rafael Palmerio, the always illuminating Soft Hands sheds light on Derek Lowe’s zipper problem.
Anchor-reporter Carolyn Hughes (above) has been taken off Dodger coverage at Fox Sports West during an investigation of her relationship with pitcher Derek Lowe, the pay site Ron Fineman’s On the Record reports. Neither Lowe nor Hughes would comment to Fineman, but Lowe’s wife Trinka had plenty to say. She told Fineman that she tipped Fox about her husband having an affair with Hughes and staying overnight at her place in Manhattan Beach. Both Lowe and Hughes insist to her they are just friends, but Trinka says “he wanted me gone when he came back from the next road trip.” The Lowes have sold their Beverly Hills home and Trinka has moved back to Florida. Fineman runs a series of uncredited (and unexplained) photographs he says show Lowe and Hughes together on Wednesday. Hughes hosts the Dodgers pregame show, “Dodgers Dugout.”
