Now You See It, Now You Don't

Mike Lowell is an interesting guy.

Apart from looking an awful lot like Todd Walker, he also appears to have a great deal of success with this wacky stuff. I wonder if we'll see him try any of this abracadabra with the Red Sox. Another fact: Lowell was born in Puerto Rico, but is actually of Cuban decent (both parents). The surname "Lowell" is British in origin.

6-1, Red Sox (bottom of the 3rd). Trot got two nice hits off of left-handed pitcher, Bedard. Mirabelli knocked the crap out of the ball and drove in a run. The key here is that Mirabelli is supposed to hit south paws well. I'm just sayin'. Oh, but Bedard was just yanked in favor of the right handed Manon. And he just walked Gonzales to load them up.

Wow--an enjoyable game without the nervous pacing. 'Bout time we got Wake some runs!

Mike Lowell was one of those guys I always admired from afar, like Mientkiewicz. And now he is here, stealing my heart.

He's been cranking out the doubles and executing defensive plays at third with such grace. Sort of Billy Mueller-style. I like how he's proven himself to be a solid player when he was originally touted as someone that was simply "thrown into" a deal.
