We need Napoli next season IMO. We have enough spots to fill without looking for more, and with a beefed up line up he could be a potent bat. I agree he's not really worth it on paper now, but think we might be glad we had him next season as he plays for a contract.
Do you really believe we will need him next year.
Stanton will be in a Sox Uni next season--IMHO.
IMO we don't need Nap--I believe we should move him and BenC. will move him at some point between now and the beginning of ST.
What if Stanton isn't in Sox uniform next year? There is no MLB regulation that says Miami has to trade him. Not to mention, Stanton doesn't play 1B. (Although he used to.)
I am starting to think the Sox acquired Craig for some much-needed MLB depth. Next season, Victorino will be back, but might not last, Papi will be another year older, and Napoli will have another year of wear-and-tear on that hip. Trading Craig might not be such a good idea.
If it's a choice between Craig or Napoli, I'd prefer the SOX keep Craig. He strikes out less and has been a good RBI man in his career. Bye, Mike.
I'd be wary of his RBI totals, fueled by an unsustainable .454 BA with RISP in 2013.
And while Craig strikes out less, he also walks less. And hits for less power. And is less of a defensive 1B...
