According to the Boston Globe, the Red Sox have a firm 3 year offer on the table for Mike Lowell.
The closest thing to rivaling this in my eyes is the fact it seems like Scott Boras and Slappy may have backed themselves into a corner: I heard Buster Olney on the MLB channel today saying the interest in Arod at the GM meetings has been lukewarm at best.
Seems like all the GM's and agents are getting a kick out of Boras having to eat some humble pie. However, knowing him, that money grubbing dirtbag has a $400 million dollar deal from the Marlins or the Dodgers in his back pocket already and is just looking to drive up the price even more. Did anyone see Texas in the picture back in 2000 when he got the $250 million dollar deal?
Still, the thought of the two of them freaking out about having to go back to the Yankees with their tail between their legs is giving me a great deal of perverse pleasure. What would be more poetic than those two morons having to settle for LESS than the MFY were willing to offer in the extension they made? There's a saying about Karma....

Lastly, to anyone who I've talked to, received an email from, or read a comment on a blog somewhere about my Mom, I can't thank you enough. She came through her surgery with flying colors today, with no apparent evidence of the cancer spreading to her lymph nodes or anywhere else. We'll know more the first of next week, but I gotta thank each and everyone of you. Your prayers, thoughts, PV's, and in the case of Tex, Rally Hoots were GREATLY appreciated by myself and my family.
I'm proud to "know" everyone of you.
