Just go read this article. There are too many quotes to post in here.
Mike Lowell impresses me more and more. It's not often that you a) see a guy turn down an extra $12.5 million, and b) say he never really considered it because he doesn't need the money. Lowell turned down the extra money and year of baseball to stay in a city that he and his family love and for the better chance of winning more World Series.
How can you not cheer for a guy like that? He's a rare player in these days.
