    Re: The Latest on the Mike Napoli Situation

    I never understood their fascination with Napoli. It doesn't matter how many positions he can theoretically play if he can't physically do it anymore.  Adam Laroche would cost more, but you get a gold glove first baseman who can also hit, & he is healthy.

    The latest situation in the Napoli hold up seems to be (as reported by Will Carroll of SI, previously of Baseball Prospectus) that the Red Sox are very concerned about his hip, so as to reduce the contract to two years. Napoli's camp says no.

    If this is the case and there is an issue with the physical, walk away. Period. Have some pelota's in your negotiation and walk. Go talk to Adam LaRoche about a two year deal and be done with it.

     I'd hesitate even for two years. Go with Salty, Ross/Lavarnway.

    Hey his hip should be fine.... remember he only needs 72 Fenway at bats to be "awesome". And don't forget that high OPS that he averaged by playing in a whopping 109 games a year (and in the league that has the DH). He has one valuable bat.... more so than Pujols and AGon according to some.

     

    This deal falling through would be like the Titantic avoiding that iceberg. A Christmas present indeed.

    Better yet, sign Lance Berkman to a one year deal with a club option for a 2nd.

    I would go for the low risk Berkman ( switch hitter) also, one year deal with options.

    Berkman and Gomez ( played 37 gms. in the majors last year and avg. a hit per gm. and has a high SLG.) will be the 1B combo. Gomez will be the back up PH ,DH and 1B and see what kind of season he will have next year.

    Or the other risk is trade for younger 1B Hosmer .

    If Napoli has injury issues the Sox can't take a risk on him.

    Maybe this a blessing in diguise. If BC can reject the trade then do it, why take a risk.

    Adam LaRoche would not only cost us a draft pick, but would reduce the money the Sox have available to sign draft picks. But if your goal is to build your team entirely out of FAs then I guess it would be a smart move.

    It must be a major issue on the medical that would scare off other teams as well, otherwise Napoli would say lets void the whole thing and let me sign with another club. This is rediculous already, they should just move on in a different direction. LaRoche is a better hitter anyway.Although it probably impacts Young Ben and his want to trade Saltalamachia b4 he gets big money.

    They can play Salty, Drew, Gomez and Sands at 1B.

    Yipee!

    Maybe bring up Bogaerts to play 1B.

    Youk got 12 million.  I think you are underestimating the money that Berkman will receive.  He may agree to a 1 yr offer; howver, the price tag will be approx 14 mil.  2 yrs / 22 is much more likely.  And Berkman is far older today than Naps will be at the end of a 3 yr contract.

    Sop let me get this straight.  you were mad when Cherington signed him, and now you are upset that Napoli's physical did not turn out so good?  

     

    So if this scenario plays out and the Sox renege on Napoli's deal, I bet you will blame Cherington for Napoli failing a physical.  and then when they sign/trade for another 1B, you will hate that guy and be the first one yelling "WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?!? YOU HAD NAPOLI!!!!!"

     

    Book it.

    actually Napoli is the best signing of the lot (i guess if i had to choose one)...at least it represents an upgrade...what makes me laugh is everything ben touches, like GW Bush, goes to all heck...usually it takes at least a month of games to see how badly a Ben trade or signing is - he beat his own record...impressive

    actually it usually takes a couple years to determine who "won" in a trade or signing... just because you choose to jump the gun for the sake of bashing him doesn't mean everyone else should too.
