Per ESPN Mikey Lowell is back. How cool is that? Leaving years and dollars on the table to come back here for three more years, good stuff. Pretty nice to think you are fans in a town that is now a desired destination for athletes across the major sports. Come a long way for sure.

Congrats to Mike and I’ve already spoken with a few guys on the team and suffice to say we’re all ectstatic. Now to get back to the FF beatings he’s been taking all year!

    Another comment to all of the fans who post here: Stop all the A rod hating and remember how so desperately you guys wanted him when he was about to be traded for Manny back in 04. You could just see the looks on the fans faces. Alex was even going to REDUCE the value of his contract to play for you guys and the union said no. Your cheap owner killed that deal. So get real, you can’t blame A rod or the Yankees for that one. He may have issues, but he can still play, and play better than anyone in a Sawx uniform. You guys hate on Damon too, blame ol’ John Henry again, for not offerring up one more measly year for a player who was supposedly the backbone of your 04 “idiots”. The Sox have two major flaws as I see it, reluctance to show appreciation to their guys at contract time, and a quiet-but ever so present reluctance to sign African-American players….and if you think I’m talking out the side of my neck, go back 20 years or so. Theres been far too few African-Americans on the team. Amazing how as soon as Boston wins a few titles the fans stop crying about high payroll.. Worked for you guys huh? Grow up.

    You gotta love that Dirty Water … thank you Mike, thank you Curt. Now, how ’bout “Back To Back” titles?

    I thought it was illegal to vote for Republicans in Vermont. Not so sure Curt would be a great fit there ;D

    Hell, I’m surprised he can stomach The People’s Republic of Massachussettes.

    Am happy to hear that the Red Sox worked it out with Mike, as he is one great ball player, so good for the Boston office for doing the right thing.
    Also as Mike said himself he likes playing in Boston, and I don’t think there are any better most loyal fans then here in New England. Am also very happy that you Curt are also all set in staying in Boston for another year, nothing like retiring here in your town of fame.
    Best of luck and have a great Holiday.

    Dear Curt:

    In thirteen months, I lost two uncles to meningities and cancer, my grandmother to time/age, my cousin to suicide, and also a very close, very dear friend to suicide. This new championship was a gift to me in ways you cannot possibly imagine.

    Thank you so much for giving us your best!

    I’m thrilled to hear that you and Mike Lowell are staying put. Guys like you are the reason players want to come to Boston and play now. Although I think salaries are ridiculous, I agree that in our respective professions, we do the same thing. If we’re making 50K and someone offers us 100K, we’re gone. Same principle, I think we’re a little jealous at how much you guy’s get, but then we can’t do what you do either. So, for you and Mikey to take less money to stay with our beloved Sox endears you guys more and more to us “common folk”. I think that was a classy move from you both. It goes to prove to your fans that you are not Pay-Rod or Clemens and just selling your soul to the highest bidder. Bravo, for playing for reasons other than money! Best of luck to you all and bring us another one next year too!!

    This has got to be one of the happiest times of my life. Honestly, to see one World Series in Boston was awesome, now two !! Thanks Curt !!! Words can’t explain how great it is to see the team happy and tight knit. It gave me the chills to see you holding that trophy up and waving with the other hand. I kept thinking, this really can’t be the last year for Schill and Mike. I prayed to the baseball gods, and they answered. Thanks for being the player you are and adjusting to the changes in your pitching style to remain dominant in the league. Whether you are 1,2,3 or wherever in the line-up you are #1 in the hearts of Boston fans. Go Schill !! Never look back. (only at the trophies !! )

    Hey Curt,

    Regarding post 39 (Yankee26). Things in New York must have hit rock bottom when yankee fans find more happiness in misspelled words rather than their teams performance!

    “the first thing my buddies and I do is run through it and see how many times you write something like “ectstatic.” It brings joy to my day!”

    Thanks for everything you and your family have done for Red Sox Nation and for your comittment to your charitable endeavors!

    Sweet! How cool that you & Mike are back! The Red Sox are truly the team to beat next year, but that won’t happen! What a huge relief to see the team stay together and not be busted apart, like the Marlins. If it aint broke, don’t fix it! Don’t mess with greatness!!
    Looking forward to next season!!!
    Have a wonderful holiday season and off-season with the family!
    Anxious to see you in July when you play the Mariners!

    Thank you, Mike! Like many Red Sox fans, I’ve liked you from the first week you played for us. Steady, professional, and at the same time rejoicing in the game, you have been so important to the clubhouse chemistry, as well as to the on field performance. I feel that your choice to return to us is a complex one, but at least, in part, involves your respect for your fans. Believe me, we appreciate it. All the best, and happy off-season.
