The Red Sox are not looking for a shortstop to replace Julio Lugo, who is out 4-to-6 weeks with a torn left quadriceps. Jed Lowrie, promoted from Class AAA, will split time with Alex Cora, who is most useful in a limited role.
Lowrie irritated some members of the Red Sox's staff during his first callup with his know-it-all manner — a common criticism of players who attended Stanford, and one that is occasionally tinged with jealousy.
There is no word if Ned Colletti or Joe Torre have ruled out ever acquiring a Stanford player for the Dodgers since "those people" JUST ... DON'T ... LISTEN.
Why can't Lowrie be more like that nice Conor Jackson kid?
