“I think I get the grand scheme of things for me… like what I value and what I don’t. It’s not that I don’t value baseball, but I’m pretty confident I’m going to be in the big leagues this year somewhere and I still view that as a privilege to me. Like I said, no one needs to feel sorry for me…” (Mike Lowell, Boston Red Sox)
And that’s why I’m a fan of Mike Lowell. He’s a big league ballplayer who makes more money a year ($12,000,000) than the vast majority of us will make in a lifetime.
And he knows it. And he appreciates it! Say hallelujah!
Lowell knows there’s no room for him on this year’s Red Sox team, that spring training is a time for him to audition for other teams.
I’ll be rooting for him, no matter which uniform he wears.
