Our Big Big Papi, David Ortiz, Wins The Silver Slugger Award....Again!!
For his position as DH, our David Ortiz has won the Silver Slugger award. Again!! Congrats, David. You KNOW how much we love you!
Oh...the latest, on this cold November weekend, on Mike Lowell, from the Boston Globe......
"Lowell and the Sox appear to be within striking distance of an agreement, the major issue remaining three years vs. four. The Sox are willing to go for a three-year deal, a major step for them; Lowell's side believes four years (at approximately $56 million) is attainable in the open market.
Epstein, who is back in Boston after this week's general managers' meetings in Orlando, Fla., characterized yesterday as quiet. He said he exchanged messages with the Levinson brothers, Lowell's agents, and they agreed to keep talking this weekend. Lowell can begin negotiating with other teams starting Tuesday."
Peter here, and little steps sometime morph into GIANT steps, but insisting on four years would undermine my belief that Mike wants to return to the Sox. I think that it's his money hungry agents talking, and he will veto their thoughts and JUST COME BACK! As Cyn said, in her great blog named RED SOX CHICK, which is linked on my link list..."The waiting is the hardest part." So true, Cyn!
