Sweet and Lowell

Theo Epstein did what fans gathered around home plate in Colorado and thronged along the Rolling Rally’s route clamored for: he resigned Mike Lowell so that the 2007 World Series MVP will remain at third base for the next three years.

The deal is a reported $37.5M, much less than the four-year, $50M deal proffered by the Phillies. Lowell truly proved he wanted to remain in Boston for the last years of his career as he turned down more money and a cozier park for the Red Sox. As inspiring as the Phillies’ run was this past season, Pat Gillick’s organization lags behind Boston’s both in major league success and minor league talent.

Could anyone have known that the so-called salary dump that accompanied Josh Beckett to Boston would become the cornerstone at the hot corner?
