    For some reason, I like this idea. It might cause the Red Sox to hurry Buchholz into the Bigs.

    Do you think we could get an Izzy Alcantra drop kick out of him?

    Nah, let them be on the straight and narrow and let the "writers" do the fighting...why hurt someone who is of value to the team when you can have people who are good for nothing else be the brunt of the news for once

    The slow news cycle is the same reason that Manny "talking with reporters" and the Coco vs. Jacoby "saga" is news...simply have to write something between now and the first games.

    For some weird reason, both the Boston Globe and MLB.com ran stories on Mike Lowell over the last few days. They probably pulled the info from the AP newswire or something. In any event, I responded by posting here. FWIW, I don't think there was anything earth-shattering in either article. Now that the dissertation is behind me and I'm settled into my new job, I'm trying to be a more engaged mod. I'm also very excited about being able to follow a new season more closely than was possible for me last year.

    That's exactly what the article is...along with him talking about his homeland and his happiness in Boston.

    Because it's a slow news cycle and the ink is fresh.

    Mike Lowell Signed Through 2010!

    Despite rumors that he would accept nothing less than a 4-year deal, Mike Lowell is returning for $37.5 million over 3 years. Given what the Yankees are paying for their 3rd baseman, I think we're getting a bargain. After all, at least we can boast that ours has a World Series MVP to show for it.
