In response to ampoule's comment:
It was a great game.
Now tell me, how many of you guys out there have a wife who insisted on watching the Rays game after the Sox?? Incredible, huh?
And, it was Price who pitched.
I wish we would have had patience with Lowrie. He's having a great year at a fraction of the cost of Drew.
I liked Lowrie but had not problem with moving on from him.
128-G, 63-R, 40-2B, 2-3B, 10-HR, 58-RBI, .293-BA, .352-OBP, .441-SLG, .793-OPS
102-G, 47-R, 22-2B, 6-3B, 10-HR, 53-RBI, .248-BA, .332-OBP, .426-SLG, .758-OPS
So Lowrie is having a slightly better year offensively.
But defensively, Drew has been much better. Error aren't an end-all stat, but Drew has just six errors and a .986 fielding percentage. Lowrie has 15 errors and a .965 fielding percentage. And I suspect, Drew has a lot better range.
