Lowell, MA

Al:
With all due respect to Clay Buchholz and yet anothah dominant performance and honest to goodness run at the Cy Young, I'd like to begin today with a melodramatic yet earnest tip o' the cap to Mike Lowell.

 

Al:
Lowell's decided to retiah at the end of the season. And he'll go out wearing Red Sox.

 

Doug:
As someone born and raised in the town named for Mike Lowell, I second that emotion.

 

Mike:
Lowell is etched in the annals of Boston glory as one of only two men who have won a World Series MVP award while wearing a Red Sox uniform.

 

Al:
His 2007 season was up there with some of the best Red Sox third base seasons of all time.

 

Doug:
Makes it all the more poignant how swift has been the decline.

 

Mike:
That which we are, we are; / One equal temper of heroic hearts, / Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will / To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.* å

The wife is in love with Mike Lowell. I'm so okay with that.

It looks like I only have 3 more good years in me if my schedule is anything like Mike Lowell's. I better start stuffing my IRA and 401(k)...

FYI, It looks like the third panel just shows as text on my computer: "r />"

Oops. Code typos. Should be fixed now.

*slow motion single tear falling*

remember this in several years when the MFY won't be able to get the broken-down Slappy McBluelips and his onerous contract out the door quickly enough

Nice tribute to Mikey today, h.b.


The "throw-in" to the Josh Beckett deal has performed more consistently well over the years that Beckett, although Beckett was fantastic in 2007 (20-7, 3.27 in reg. season, complete game shutout in divisional series, 2-0, 1.93 in ALCS and 1-0, 1.29 in the WS). But Mike had a great year too in '07 -- .324, 191 hits, 21 HRs and 120 RBIs). We'll miss you, Mike.

A class act from day one.His kind are few and far between.

I was thinking just a few games ago, I wish there was some way for Mike Lowell to always play for the Redsox, forever. I like everything about the guy.

Waiver claim on Damon? That has go to be the craziest headline I've seen in awhile. Yet, I don't know what to think. He was instrumental to 2004 so what they hey. I'd welcome him back and hope for some magic.

Like mrs go sox go heels, Mrs sdu says: No, he's too young.

In other news from the anitpodes,
(1) Collingwood won the minor premiership.

Tears and mental breakdown commence in two weeks.

(2) We have draws (ties) in cricket, soccer and AFL, so why no federal elections:

When it first became clear that there would be no winner on Saturday night, and there would be a hung Parliament, the ABC's chief reporter said:
The question is which way will it hang?

Stated another way, SDU, the ABC reporter was asking will the country "dress right" or "dress left". Sounds like you need a good tailor down there... :-D

FUCK. NO.

Damon burned his bridges! What's he gonna do? Walk on water to get back here? Fuck him.

Kaz,

NICE

That's gold Larry Here. God I love Fenway Park (sorry Lou but you're just wrong) - I want to go to there.

What Harwich Rich said; also the Sox have been fortunate at 3rd for a while; Bill M and then Mikey. Hard to come up with any one - much less 2 - who did a better job of playing the game the way it should be played.
