    Actually it lead to Gonzalez which was a disaster.


    Actually, it lead to Crawbust, which was a disaster. AGon was far from a disaster. 

    Avoid Ellsbury like the plague!

    Good news, as no way the Red Sox should pay for Napoli as opposed to getting the draft pick and replacing Napoli with a better value and fit option in Kendrys Morales or a solid .900 plus OPS v. LP bridge one year cheap single digits replacement in Konerko with a platooning patch like Nava v. RP. 

    Management would be foolish to resign Napoli in his 2014 market. 2013 worked out great, don't do something stupid like double and triple down on Napoli stock. Sell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Take the draft pick!!!!!!!!!!



         Though Nap is a clutch hitter, I tend to agree with you. Let some other team mortgage their future to sign him. In fact, if I were the Sox, I'd be hoping that all their tendered players walk. Build through the draft...and go with the kids.

         It will be interesting to see what type of offers Ellsbury will draw.

    Gonzalez was paid a ton of dough, cost a ton of prospects, could take responsiblity for his team collapsing, lost all of his power because of an injury, and was horrible in the club house. He actually was a bigger failure than Crawford.



    Was he "horrible in the club house" because he didn't get along with Bobby? LMAO That's the definition of every player that didn't get along with Bobby.

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2013/11/napoli-to-explore-market-has-multiyear-offer-from-boston.html

     

    He already received multi yr offer from the Sox according to source.  But he's expected to test the market.  Wow.  Unless Sox' offer was humiliating him, a RING can change everything.  



     Yes ! I hope he finds a happier team that grows longer beards. Take his 3 strike out a game elsewhere...We will miss him on real hot days... He was a human fan with all his swings and misses



    Napoli has evolved into a pretty darn good first baseman and he provides right handed power not an easy thing to miss.



    I agree with the power thing but very poor at bats,tons of strikeouts. How many pitchers rather pitch around Ortiz to take a chance on the strikeout machine? In games that mean most Ortiz will be walked...... Not good !!!

    Dude, the meth fumes from next door are getting to you again.

    Morales is a better fit and value?

    1-Value-Since you have no idea what their salaries will be, you have no idea of what their values will be.  If they both get $28M/2, Napoli is twice the value that Morales is.

    2-Fit-Morales is a DH.  We already have a DH.

    3-Draft pick-Morales has a QO attached to him.  It's not a big difference, but if we did what you suggest, we lose our #30 and pick up a supplemental pick.  It is not a material difference, but your suggestion does not help our draft, it hurts it.

    Seriously, one of you worst posts ever.

    Everyone freaked out when the Sox let Victor Martinez and Adrian Beltre go.  How did that turn out?

    Oh yeah...A World Series title!



    Adrian Beltre is a monster for 15 mil a year he provides gold glove defense, plays 150 games and is always close or over .300 30hr 100rbi always thought it was crazy to let him go so we could give up Rizzo for 2 years of agon as it turned out, Adrian would have been a great player to keep

    Nut, I've noted that you like Napoli over Morales, over the next 2 or 3 years. 

    Add this Seattle fan to that list.

    In fact, "on road" is apples and oranges. How about "in Seattle for half the season" vs. "in Fenway for half the season".

    For what it's worth, this season Kendrys Morales posted a .282/.339/.472/.811 line in 327 plate appearances at Safeco Field and a .272/.333/.425/.759 line in 330 plate appearances on the road:
