Mike Lowell...WELCOME BACK!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!

From the Globe, with thanks to Matt, who writes the blog Fenway West (on my link list!)...

"Free-agent third baseman Mike Lowell has agreed in principle to the framework of a three-year deal to return to the Red Sox, major league baseball sources close to the negotiations have confirmed.
Lowell, 33, tested the free-agent waters, and may have received at least one four-year offer from another undisclosed team, but in the end the Sox third baseman elected to stay where he was most comfortable. Sources indicate that the three year deal is worth in the $36-$38 million range.
The Red Sox had placed a deadline of today for Lowell to make up his mind. If Lowell had passed on the Sox offer, which remained pretty close to the original offer they made the World Series MVP, they were ready to begin implmenting their Plan B.
The Sox have now re-signed both of their major free-agents - Curt Schilling, who agreed to a one-year deal for $8 million and $5 million in incentives. The Sox could now entertain a deal for outfielder Coco Crisp sometimes between now and the winter meetings in December."

Good news Peter, thanks for keeping those who don't check the regular news sites first or don't see them or here it otherwise.

Just to let you know am usually over on the east side of the CT river then the West side. I was in West Hartford and Farmington for some meetings that day, but I'm still in central CT, I be going over to Manchester now to get a World Series coffee mug I saw to celebrate Lowell's signing.
