What To Do With Mike Lowell?

Man, Mike Lowell is confused to death by now. First, the Sox try to trade him to Texas for a prospect and pay $9 million of his contract, then, they sign Adrian Beltre. Mike Lowell is wondering what in the world to do, Theo Epstein said something, however, that is kind of a mystery to me. Epstein said, "We're on the same page as Mike Lowell," but I don't know what he's talking about. Beltre is going to play third base for the Red Sox next year, but that leaves Mike Lowell (who the Sox owe $12 million in 2010, mind you!) out of the main picture. He could battle with David Ortiz (who they owe a pretty penny as well) for the DH spot in the lineup. Lowell had a line of .290, 17, 75 last year while David Ortiz had a line of .238, 28, 99. If you want my prediction, they will try as hard as they can to trade Lowell, and if that doesn't work out, he'll split at DH with Big Papi. Go Sox, all the way!!!!!!
