Mike Lowell's thoughts on the Rangers
"I think I looked at the Texas thing as a pretty good challenge," Lowell said. "I thought that the team did a lot of good things last year they were in it basically till the end. The way I viewed it, I’d probably DH a lot, play first base a lot and if Michael Young needed to DH, I'd probably move to third for a handful of games.
"I didn’t have a problem with that. I didn’t see that as a bad situation. I thought that was a place I could fit in the lineup there and put up the numbers on a team that was going to be competitive. I wasn’t ashamed of going over there. I wasn’t disappointed that it might be a possibility where I landed. I was all right it didn’t go through."
Lowell said he feels his thumb will be ready. He was asked whether he could still end up in Texas.
"I know they signed Vlady I got to believe Vlady is there to be DH most of the time I don’t really know their roster," Lowell said. "I don’t know if Im a fit there. Could I be? I guess I could. It'd be a great question for Jon Daniels."
We'll ask him.
