Interesting what he had to say. It's a good read!

Mike Lowell with trophy in 07
Mike Lowell remembers the intensity of the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry from both sides
"I said, ‘Man, is it like this all the time?’ It was like a football playoff atmosphere. And he goes, ‘When we play the Red Sox, it is.’"

By Hayden Bird

A decade after he was a central member of the 2007 Red Sox championship team, Mike Lowell is still deeply involved in the baseball world. Now a studio analyst for MLB Network, he remains immersed in the game, albeit in a different role.

Originally drafted by the Yankees (with whom he made his MLB debut), Lowell went on to become a World Series winner with the Marlins in 2003 before closing out his career with a successful five-year run as the Red Sox third baseman. His history in Boston was highlighted by a World Series MVP performance against the Rockies in 2007, when he hit .400 during the four-game sweep.

Now retired from his playing days, Lowell still enjoys looking back on a remarkable career that was not without its doubtful moments. In February, 1999, Lowell was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He missed part of the 1999 season undergoing treatment, but recovered and went on to a full career that included four All-Star appearances.

He reflected on a number of moments from his career as well as a few other topics in a recent interview.Collapse )

It's a good read.
