Beats me, but I pulled him as an FA and Garrett Atkins has been riding the pine ever since.

Sell him high. He is a notorious second half flopper.

He is a quick starter.


Some might say that he is having a strong contract year.

I accidentally drafted Lowell when the timer ran out on my pick in Round 18, and he's been playing in place of Atkins on my team since like Week 3.

Hopefully Atkins will start heating up at about the time Lowell remembers he's not this good. :-b

He's been a butcher in the field this year and, as history shows, he'll fall off significantly.

People say he is a fast starter, but its much more then that right now.

He is making contact over 92 % of the time.

He is walking 11 % of the time.

Right now he is higher then a pure 300 hitter, and there is nothing lucky about what hes doing.

In that Lineup even with a slight slump he still is on track to well within the top 10 3rd basemen in baseball(He was 7--11 depending on position eligibility of other players last year after a slower start then this year).

Right now hes top 4 ahead of Miggy Cabrera, and Aram. I would say hes pretty good lol.

Ohh, and the offsetting factor of his second hand slump that many of you are predicting is possible---This is his contract year.

Since the whole second half slump seems like public knowledge, I suggest taking advantage of it by acquiring Lowell for little to nothing.

You cannot possibly say that you would rather have Lowell than Miggy or A-Ram. Chris Shelton was the best 1B in baseball this time last year, and look how that ended up.

Lowell has always been a decent 3B; the move to Fenway with a smaller park and better lineup have helped a lot. But don't expect him to post these numbers all year long.

So he's striking out negative 3% of the time?

No, you've got to carry the 1 and divide by X^3 to make it a solvable differential equation! !+)
