In response to JimfromFlorida's comment:
Here is a RS guy who has yet to feel the wrath of RS fans. It seems he always comes thru. However I am shocked some who hated the signing have not picked up that he has a 320 ave which is his best in baseball to date.
What the haters have not mentioned is his 32 Ks in 103 ABs.
Probably for the 33 hits, 9 BB, 25 RBI and 8 HRs
If he gets 300 ABs he could end up with 96Ks, 99 Hits, 27 BBs, 75 RBIs and 24 HRs.
I guess what I'm saying is that Ks seem to only matter you want them to support your theory when a guy is down.
And the rest of the story. A tale of two Mike's.
G AB H HR RBI BB SO BA OBP SLG OPS
Napoli 66 244 64 9 49 28 93 .262 .347 .467 .814
Carp 40 100 32 7 23 8 32 .320 .367 .660 1.027
For his at-bats, Carp strikes out 32% and Napoli 38%. The RBI percentage for at-bats is similiar as well. But just look at the BA, OBP, SLG, and OPS comparisons.
I'm not trying to kick a guy when he's down, and I will admit that Napoli's play has been admirable, but would it not seem appropriate at the very least to platoon Napoli against lefties and Carp against righties while his bat remains hot? And as an addendum, I think Carp has the better glove at 1B.
