Mike Lowell showed plenty of grit and leadership during his big league career, and that immediately had fans tabbing him as manager material. Two years into his retirement days, the four-time All-Star isn't ready to tackle a managerial gig just yet. "It's not for me right now,'' Lowell said in a phone interview with CBSSports.com. The news comes at a time when two of Lowell's former teams are the subjects of plenty of managerial speculation. The Red Sox, of course, have an opening now that Bobby Valentine is out of the equation, and there's reportedly been rumblings that the Marlins may consider a change after a disatrous first season in Miami for skipper Ozzie Guillen. Lowell is reportedly content spending time with his family and working on his broadcast career, although the former third baseman isn't ruling out pursuing a coaching career at some point. "That's something that might intrigue me in the future,'' Lowell reportedly said. "I like being on the field more than in an office -- but it's just not something I'm ready to do at this point. The time commitment for a manager is greater than it is for a player, which is something people don't realize. The time isn't something I'm willing to give up right now.'' Can't fault a guy for that.
