Lowell now available; should Yanks chase?

The Globe says there is no deal for Mike Lowell with Boston. Not yet anyway. He wants four years.

Now he’s on the market and a certain team in the Boogie Down needs a third baseman. But the Yankees should be careful of Lowell.

Home in 2007: .373/.418/.575
Away in 2007: .276/.339/.428
Career at Yankee Stadium: .278/.330/.456 (90 ABs)

This is guy is one of the finest people in all of baseball. I’ve known him for 11 years and he’s a great guy. But this is also a guy who went .236/.298/.360 for Florida in 2005. Playing at Fenway Park in that lineup revitalized him.

The Yankees need a third baseman and taking him would weaken Boston. But a four-year deal for him would be a reach.
