He's had a better season than the $21M AGon.

Napoli deserves every dollar.
I agree Moon. The guy has realy been a bargain when you look at a lot of other players and 1 baseman. Tex, Agon, Pujols etc....
Think about that trade with the Dodgers.
We signed Victorino (at less cost) to replace Crawford in the OF. Win.
We signed Napoli to replace AGon at less cost. Win.
We signed Dempster and traded for Peavy & his contract to replace JB. Win.
We signed Drew to replace Punto (actually Aviles, but maybe you are not paying attention). Win
All of these guys combined cost less per year than the 4 we traded, so throw in Uehara, Carp, Gomes, and Ross to come close to evening out the 2013 salary.
Then add to that Webster, de la Rosa, and indirectly Holt.
What a trade!
