Mets Sign Jed Lowrie

Imo this is a great pickup for the Mets.
Not only is he a very good player coming off of his best season but imo he exemplifies the kind of leadership skills and adds those intangibles needed so badly for a team to succeed.
During his stay with the Sox, he was always one of my favorite players.
From now on with his added presence, the Mets will become my favorite NL team-before I didn't have any, .

He was here(Boston) for four seasons, and I always loved his overall/no nonsense/give it his all always as well as getting some timely hits and being very steady defensively.
For me although not as good he is a Pedroia style player and makes any team bigger than the sum of the parts.
Maybe saying I will be a Mets fan is a little much, but I have and will always root for him no matter where he plays (except when his team plays the Sox) excepting the Yankees of course.

Of course he wasn't even remotely close to Pedroia or Papi, Wayne, and he didn't play every day.
I simply liked the way he played the game with his overall hustle and play, and felt his presence value to the team went beyond stats.
Lets just say that I am happy that he developed into the player he is, which he showed last year and feel that he was a big reason that the A's did as well as he did.
I feel that he will make the Mets a lot better also.
If the Sox had needed and infielder this year, I would have felt very comfortable had they acquired him.
That's it-I short as I stated before, nice pickup for the Mets-he is a real professional who imo would help any team.
