This message brought to you by the Mike In Left Foundation.
Narrator: He's the fastest player on earth.
Narrator: Jacoby Ellsbury has been caught stealing 23 times in his career. But that hasn't stopped him from continuing to steal.
Narrator: In 2009, Jacoby Ellsbury stole 70 bases, making him the worst felon in baseball.
Narrator: And Jacoby Ellsbury joined the Red Sox the same year as noted laptop thief Clay Buchholz. They've even appeared in the same clubhouse.
Narrator: Mike Lowell has the character and experience to bring the change we need to Left Field. He won't steal like Jacoby. And he won't pal around with crime lords like Clay Buchholz.
Narrator: On April 4, vote Mike Lowell for Left Field, for the change we need.
