  2. this has always been my argument about lowrie – he broke his wrist once and the effects lingered for like two years, so everyone kept talking about it. then he got mono and missed most of a year. and from then on he was “injury-prone” and “made of glass” and so on. but anybody would be injury-prone if people kept coming up and slugging them with a germy rock

  3. The 2013 Lowrie is legitimate. His babip will come down, yes, but he is hitting the ball well and his LD rate proves it. He will give you top production at SS, given he stays healthy. Oakland stole this guy. He’s gotta stay healthy.

  4. Gotta say, I’ve always been curious what Lowrie could do with an entire year worth of PAs. Let’s hope that the injuries aren’t a result of his style of play, and we’ll get the chance to see him play a full year.

    On a related note, I feel the same way about Ellsbury that wily mo feels about Lowrie. Ellsbury has gotten a bad rap about his health ability based on a couple of freak incidents – and he’s been extremely capable of playing out full seasons otherwise.

    And following that thought, I’ve always felt that extreme base stealers like Ellsbury — guys who steal more than, say, 40 SB/year — tend to get hurt more often. Not sure where I picked up that bias, but it feels true. Love to see a study on that.

  5. Some players do collide with teammates more than others – and if they’re strong, like Adrian Beltre, it’s the other guy who gets hurt.

  6. Ellsbury and Lowrie are close friends, reportedly. Maybe this misunderstanding is something they’ve bonded over.

  7. Good point about Beltre, he took out a few Red Sox players during his 2011 stint.
