Although there were lots of reports that the Phillies made a four-year offer to Mike Lowell over the weekend, that isn’t quite true. They were prepared to make that offer if Lowell had told them he wanted to be a Phillie. But instead, Lowell was so intent on going back to Boston, he called the Phillies and told them it wouldn’t be right to even ask for an offer. Just one more example of how one of the classiest humans in baseball operates 24/7.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
