    Is It Time To Move Mike Napoli Down in Order?

    What are your thoughts? Over last 10 games, he has struck out 50% of the time.

    Maybe Papi would hit even better if someone like Carp was there to protect him a little better.

    He walked 3 times last night.

    This thread should mean Naps is about to heat it up.

    Heating up? 0 for 4 today, 2 K's, 8 LOB and 145 K's on the season.

    I mean that anytime someone bashes a Sox player, they seem to heat it up.

    144 k's now. You are correct if you feel if he should sit more often. Beyond bad. The 3 year deal would kill the Sox.

    One guy hitting 367 since AS game the other 261

    for one 367,  5 RBI, 7 W, 5 Dbl, 1 HR 5 Runs, 10 K

    other 261,  6 RBI, 8 W, 4 Dbl, 3 HR, 10 Runs, 18 K

    One is considered going on a great hitting streak the other is being told to be benched or lower in the order.

    Seems to me the 261 is the guy you want actual has more run to team than 367 guy

    Who would you rather have?

    LOVE my  Red Sox, Bs, Cs, Pats and enjoy the ride every year.

    Problem is, we don't really have someone to protect Papi.  You could move Pedey from two to four, that's about the only guy we have who can truly back Papi up.

    In his last 12 games, his OPS is .974.  I'd give Carp a few ABs against tought righties, but why would you want to sit someone that is killing the ball?

    Yes, as far down as possible. Putting him on the bench wouldn't be a bad idea either. i'd rather have Nava playing. But Farrell being the robot manager that he is won't even consider it.



    Over his last 12 games, Napoli's OPS is .974.

    Over his last 12 games, Nava's OPS is .532.

    Which OPS is better and why?

    Naps is real power threat and needs to be in the lineup.

    Yeah, I think ADG just kind of mailed it in today.  It's referred to as troll fatigue.  When your hobby is to bash the RS, and the RS are doing well, most of the trolls just kind of fade away for a while.  I mean this place was thick with bashers in March, and now I almost never see any of them.

    To ADG's credit, he at least keeps it going.  I guess he just got tired of picking a target and being wrong, so he just picked the player with the worst stats today.

    No, the numbers don't lie. Here are the sad facts about KNap from May 1 to Aug 3101 , not the SSS of the last 12 games (those who quoted that should know better by now):

    Games: 74 (note: not 12)

    PA: 310

    BA: .256

    OPS: .790 (career OPS: .855)

    K's: 101 (32.6%)

    BBs: 40

    Its time for KNap to grab some pine, especially vs RHP where his OPS compared to Carp is:

    .823 for KNap; .996 for Carp

    Also, while KNap strikes out a whopping 35% of the time vs RHP, Carp K's at 28% which is not great, but is better.

    Solution: platoon KNap and allow him to play only vs LHP, even though his OPS is even lower against them (so is Carps). And when he is playing, drop him in the lineup to about seventh and try to protect Papi a bit better with someone else, perhaps Nava.

    KNap's time is up. He has had three months of subpar performance and there are better options at 1B when a RHP is on the mound. I am tired of seeing him flail about at the plate like he did today when he left the bases loaded twice. Before anything, he needs a rest of 3-4 games to get his head together. Then he is platooned and dropped in the lineup.
