Mike Lowell Is the Ultimate Stand Up Guy
But He'll Have to Take a Seat If He Stays in Boston

Lowell: 'No Real Playing Time for Me Here'
I Used to Be 10 Times Stronger, Too, Oh Nevermind. Sincerely, Mark McGwire
So Who's the Guy Who Felt Sorry for a Guy Making $12 Million to Play Ball?
He's As 'Dicey' As Your Articles Want Him to Be... And He's Not Dead Yet, Johnny
On the Texas Mess: Beyond the Annual Rumors, Being on Da Plane Was Weird
And With Vlad in the House, He's Obviously Not a Fit With the Rangers Anymore
On the Fans: He Says All the Right Things Because He's Smart, Stupid
He's a Cool Breeze to Boot: 'Want to Stress That I'm Not Stressed'

"I said hi to [Red Sox third baseman Adrian Beltre] today. I hadn't seen him before. I mean, I know him as a baseball friend. I've never had meals with him. But I think he has an opportunity to make $10 million. I don't really think he’s worried about it. If I'm him, I don't not sign on a team because of the other guy. Especially if the organization tells him you're going to play. I think he made it clear that Theo told him that whether he signed or not, I was not going to play third. I think that makes it a little easier for that guy... I don't need to see him to know where my status was. I think the writing was on the wall, basically the first day of the winter meetings." -- Mike Lowell, knows the score
