The News We Are Waiting To Hear...Is Close!!!!

From the combined wire services on this Thursday 22 F degree morning....

"Third baseman Mike Lowell, the World Series MVP, could re-sign with the Red Sox before Tuesday, when free agents can begin negotiating with other teams. "We're hopeful," Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein said at the GM meetings in Orlando. Lowell, who turns 34 in February, likely will sign a deal that guarantees him three years."

Peter here, and I thought I'd try to start your day off with a huge smile plastered right across your kisser! When the official word comes down (by Tuesday, we have to hope!), I know that's exactly what will happen to me. A HUGE smile!! For our infield will be intact, our outfield will be the same as last year, and all that's needed is a little "bullpen tuning." And what a great feeling THAT is!

Roger Clemens news, or non- news is more like it.....from the Courant....

"In a sign that Roger Clemens' playing career could be over, his agent told the Astros on Wednesday that the seven-time Cy Young winner is set to start his personal-services contract with the team.
It's the first time agent Randy Hendricks formally told the Astros that Clemens, who pitched for Houston from 2004-2006, was ready to work off the field.
Clemens, 45, was 6-6 with a 4.18 ERA in 17 starts and one relief appearance for the Yankees last season. He rejoined them in June and was paid $17.4 million, a prorated portion of his $28 million salary.
Clemens was slowed by injuries, then hurt a hamstring and left in the third inning of his playoff start against the Indians."

Peter here, and for what he accomplished last year, those Yankees were RIPPED OFF! But they're the Yankees...who cares? I know I don't.

For more on the Lowell talks between the Sox and the Levinsons, click on the title of this post. It's an article by the Herald's Michael Silverman, whose outlook is bleaker than it should be. MARK MY WORDS. Mikey will be signed for three years by the Boston Red Sox before Tuesday, November 13th, 2007. And it'll be a day we will all remember next October as one of the keys to our 2008 second consecutive World Championship! Wishful thinking?? We never know, do we? And I've gotten a few comments, mostly via email, that with 7 pitchers (including Tavy) ready for a spot in the 5 man rotation, there will be a trade involving one of our starters. NOTHING could be further from the truth! Trust me.

Enjoy this Thursday...we're over the hump and sliding towards the weekend. And I'd love to read and respond to your comments, too. Thanks for being here!
