    ESPN - Mike Lowell and the Boston Red Sox are on the verge of finalizing a three-year, $37.5 million deal, ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney reports.

    Lowell followed a superlative regular season -- career highs in batting average (.324) and RBIs (120) to go with 21 home runs in 154 games -- with an outstanding October. In Boston's four-game sweep of Colorado, Lowell hit .400 (6-for-15) with four RBIs, three walks and a team-high six runs in winning the World Series.

    He homered, doubled and scored twice in the Game 4 clincher at Denver's Coors Field en route to being named the World Series MVP.

    So he's not pushing the luck any and going for 4 years?

    I don't think it would hurt him any if he tried to go for a fourth year. If they shoot him down on that offer he could always sign for the 3 year deal because I can guarantee you that if he is still playing solid baseball consistently, then after his 3 year contract is up, the Redsox will re-sign him.

    thats true. I was hoping that they wouldnt sign him to a 4 year deal though, just because we dont know how he is going to be playing after these 3 years. So its best to just wait and see.
