There was A-Rod's "ball-slapping' incident (pictured) in 2004. There was the "Mine" incident earlier this year. And there have been far too many unflattering appearances in the tabloids. Alex Rodriguez always seems to be involved in controversy, while Mike Lowell thrives away from the limelight. Because Lowell doesn't crave attention, we never get to see where he hangs out after games, or what kind of T-shirts his wife wears. Unlike with A-Rod's wife, we're pretty sure Mrs. Lowell's wardrobe doesn't come with profanities.
