Mike Lowell Shares His Toughest Opponents Faced Throughout MLB Career According to Mike Lowell, it's never easy to face the New York Yankees — even in May.

The former Red Sox third baseman sat down during his episode of After The Game: Work Hard, Live Well, Give Back to discuss the tough opponents he's faced throughout his MLB career.

It doesn't come as a surprise that the Yankees top the list. Lowell also mentioned Yankees go-to closer, Mariano Rivera, as one of the toughest pitchers to face.

"Facing Mariano Rivera is never fun because the Yankees are in the last inning and they're usually ahead," Lowell said. "You gotta beat him to beat the Yankees."
