Mike Lowell and the Red Sox today agreed in principle to a new three-year deal, worth about $37.5 million for the 2007 World Series MVP. Great to see him returning to the Red Sox, as it was an obvious fit that he return to Fenway Park.
Today's Boston Globe has a section called "5 Reasons Mike Lowell is better than A-Rod" and why it was better that Lowell play for the Sox than Slappy.
My favorite line is under Reason Number Five:
Unlike with A-Rod's wife, we're pretty sure Mrs. Lowell's wardrobe doesn't come with profanities.
Welcome back, Mike. It's great you'll be around another three seasons.
Lowell also finished fifth in the MVP voting today, just behind teammate David Ortiz. Magglio Ordonez was second with Vladimir Guerrero right behind him. The winner? Slappy.
