Mike Lowell, Most Valuable Player

I know I should just be basking in the moment, but I'm concerned about what happens to Mike Lowell now that he is a free agent.

Now that Alex Rodriguez is leaving New York, Lowell will probably get a 4-year offer from the Yankees, and I don't think the Red Sox will offer him more than 2 years with an option for year 3. The Sox front office is cold-blooded that way...and it was the right choice to let Pedro Martinez go after the 2004 WS, and Johnny Damon after the 2005 season.

It's really going to be up to Lowell -- does he want to play in Boston, where he'll be loved, or take more money to go to a Yankees team in disarray.

This free agent stuff is the one part of baseball I don't like. I don't begrudge the players getting what they can given the system, but I do wish there was more roster stability, like in the NFL or NBA.

OK -- resume basking!
