When you’re Mike Lowell (and that’s World Series MVP Mike Lowell to you, whitey), you don’t have to go out in search of the awesome. The awesome just finds you.

“I got to shoot an ad today with Rene Russo,” the Red Sox third baseman said before the Boston Baseball Writers dinner at the Westin Waterfront Hotel. “I don’t think that if I went 1 for 17 in the Series I would have gotten the same chance.”

“I didn’t have to do anything. Rene played a fan and did all the work.”

Mike Lowell. You dream it. He does it.
