In response to EnchiladaT's comment:
Napoli is fine under a short-term deal... the mistake or the lack of options that will hurt us is not adding a real power threat. Napoli really offers no protection to Ortiz... though I suppose Carp is a real masher and would cause pitchers to pause in pitching around Ortiz?
Anyhow we need a real 30+ homer threat batting clean-up or third.
This notion that the Sox "need" a real 30+ home run threat is absurd.
The Red Sox scored by far and away the most runs in all of MLB last year and were elite in numerous other offensive categories.
How many guys on the team hit 30+ home runs? One. Besides Napoli, nobody else on the team hit 20+ home runs.
A deep lineup with no black holes and guys who can get on base will score runs. And lots of them.
By the way, home run power is so scarce that you can't just snap your fingers and get a guy on your team who is easily capable of hitting 30 or more home runs.
Only 14 guys in all of baseball had 30 or more home runs last year.
