Red Sox Re-Sign Mike Lowell!!

Multiple news outlets -- including, the Boston Herald and the Boston Globe -- reported on Monday afternoon that Lowell and the Red Sox have agreed in principle on a three-year deal that is believed to be worth between $36-$38 million.

According to a Red Sox official, no announcement is expected until Tuesday at the earliest.

Lowell was the Most Valuable Player during the Red Sox's World Series sweep of the Rockies, hitting .400 (6-for-15) with a homer and four RBIs. He also had one of the strongest regular seasons of his career, hitting .324 with 21 homers and a club-leading 120 RBIs.

All along, Lowell, who turns 34 in February, wanted to stay with the Red Sox and the club wanted him back. The only sticking point seemed to be the length of the deal.

The Red Sox would only offer three years, while Lowell and his representatives were hopeful of finding a four-year deal.

It is unknown if Lowell, in fact, did receive a four-year offer on the open market.
