Mike Lowell update

In my weekly Red Sox report on Monday, I made a comment about Mike Lowell, saying that "if a single 0-4 can drop you from "pleasant surprise" to "take him out and shoot him," it's too early to evaluate the numbers." That is emphasized - strongly - by where Lowell is today. Following his 4-4 with 3 doubles in yesterday's home opener, he went from .190/.292/.381/.673 to .320/.393/.600/.993. So he went from "pleasant surprise" to "take him out and shoot him" to "dominant MVP candidate" in the course of 8 at-bats.

"It's too early to evaluate the numbers" doesn't begin to describe it, and the people who were calling for the Red Sox to cut him yesterday sound even more like idiots than they did 24 hours ago...
