He is walking 11 % of the time.



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


isn't it obvious?

he's only striking out on foul tips.

Striking out less!


Fluke, Lineup, Combo??


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


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


My exact thinking as well. :-b

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

You can make contact and end with an out, but at least you make contact. You can make contact on a foul tip, pop out, etc. On the next pitch you can get a walk.

These are mutually exclusive, you don't need to add them.....is this really a complicated thing?

Wow, talk about a buzz kill. Can't a guy make a little math joke and not get crucified these days?

Anyhoo, I have to ask, what the crap are you talking about? I thought I knew what contact rate was, but you've definitely confused me. What does "...on the next pitch you can get a walk..." mean? It almost seems like you're saying contact rate is based on each pitch, not each at bat... care to explain?

HR again today. The Pre/Post All-Star Break numbers are definetly scary, but I dont think his 2nd half will be too bad (if healthy) hitting in the Red Sox lineup

Buy Mike Lowell. --Like I said earlier hes a guy you can get super cheap.

Right now hes like either the 2nd or 3rd best third basemen in fantasy.

Even with the second half dropoff hes still going to finish out a top ten 3rd basemen.

But Im starting to believe there's a kryptonite to Mike Lowells second half slump developing this year: Contract year.
