*IMO The cubs are waiting for Lowell to get on the market and are using Shea Hillenbrand to drive down the price on Lowell.

"So you can expect that he will be getting in touch in the next couple weeks with the Florida Marlins to assess their interest in trading third baseman Mike Lowell and talking once again with Boston Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein to determine if he is willing to part with third baseman Shea Hillenbrand and for what price."

Shea was this hot last year in the first month...

Lowell is a better overall player though...

I hope we dont need to make this trade

lowell is the best third sacker in the national league right now.

Rolen is batting somewhere in the region of .260.. clearly Lowell is the best at this point..

Foggy Doggy the key word there is "right now" In the past 2 year Lowell has out played Rolen

He will start hitting with RISP. He is known for hitting for RISP. The hits will come when he starts adjusting after like 6 months of not hitting. I dont agree with trading lowell but Shea is hitting good and is very cheap o it would be good for the Marlins. I hope we dont trade him but we will leave it to the management and see what Shea does for us....
