Lowell's agents are smrt.
Yet another example of why I'm not sure all athletes need agents. "Lowell's side believes four years (at approximately $56 million) is attainable in the open market." Well, [censored]. I could've told you that Lowell. I could also tell you that it's possible a team out there will go 5/$70M. But one of your agents will probably leak the news on that possibility soon. ..in all seriousness, it's not looking good for those in the "bring Lowell back no matter what"-camp.
Dustin Pedroia: ouchie.
I can't really imagine how painful it must be playing with a broken bone in your hand. I played baseball once with what I termed "bruised intangibles". Hurt like hell people. Anyway, it looks like the surgery went well, and our 2B/source of extreme annoyance to other teams should be ready to go in ST.
