No, we haven’t had that discussion, and that is my bad. Lowrie is awesome. I think he is very much in the Pedroia kind of mold – doesn’t strike out much, has some patience, and can scatter hits around. He is putting up super solid numbers right now. Very impressive to me is the 31 RBIs for 44 hits. He’s come through big. I also like the 0.377 OBP.
