    If the price is right, the time is always right.

    Yeah, we have a real surplus of power hitters.

    Has he really supplied any protection for Ortiz? And isn't he on track for about 65 RBIs? Those aren't especially good numbers for a supposed "power hitter"

    Who's providing protection for Mike Napoli, who has 52 walks in 321 plate appearances to David Ortiz's 53 walks in 395 plate appearances?

    Despite less protection for Napoli, compare their 2014 slash lines:


    MN 321 PA, .266/.389/.431/.820


    DO 395 PA, .255/.357/.487/.844


    I suspect Napoli isn't seeing many good pitches.


    Whom would the Red Sox want from the Mariners?

    I would not be upset if the Sox traded Napoli for the right price, but they best have a plan for first base in 2015. 

    [/QUOTE]

    If they trade Napoli it just opens up another need.

    Mike Napoli, who remains under team control only through next season at the steep salary of about $23 million, is unlikely to land D.J. Peterson, a 22-year-old corner infielder who is a Top 50 prospect only one year after being taken with the 12th pick of the 2013 draft.

    Heck yes.  I been saying this for 3 months now.

    How can you have a 1B that makes $16mill that hits 10Hr, 34RBI's hitting in the 4-hole?

    He's lost it.  If he were a catcher still...  fine.  But not the 1B.  You expect much more offense out of that position.

    The Sox won’t get Peterson for Napoli.   Maybe someone like Dario Pizzano (plus?) would be a more realistic return…

    Napoli has an .820 OPS.  The average OPS for AL first basemen is .749.

    Napoli shouldn't be hitting 4th, I agree with that, but our lineup has been so weak.  Napoli would be a superb #6 hitter.

    yes, let's get rid of the only hitter other than Ortiz who can even hit a ball 350 feet. As if the team isn't starved for any power as it is. Do you suggest Carp play 1st?

    Holt...since he plays every position in the infield, outfield....

    Holt will someday hold all 8 fielding positions and DH, he will be huffing and puffing as he hits a single, runs back to the plate, hits into a 4-6-3 DP, runs back to the plate, hits another single, runs back to the plate, lines to LF. Goes to the OF and IF to man his 8 positions.

    i thought this was about Peavy...once again like kemp, napoli is overpaid but one of our better production guys....asking who wants to get rid of 16 mil is like asking who wants to get rid of their mortgage....maybe the answer depends on whether you have to live out on the street or not....I like shane, napoli, and peavy and they were a part of success last year - now I guess they are replaceable...kinda sad

    We'd be losing one year of Napoli.  And we'd have another $16M to replace him.

    To replace Naps, how about we sweeten the pot for DJ Peterson?  We could hive up a decent minor league SP, which perhaps Seattle might be interested in flipping for Price.

    I doubt the Mariners would include D.J. Peterson in any trade for Mike Napoli. In fact, the Mariners would be reluctant to include Peterson in trade for David Price and Ben Zobrist if that deal included Taijuan Walker. Seattle has plenty of pitching prospects to offer the Rays.

    Any teams that have been scouting Napoli this year are probably not drooling at the mouth to acquire him.

    he is not a power hitter.... posters forgot what real power is years ago

    [/QUOTE]

    Pitching is dominating the last couple of years and steroid power is gone.

    Napoli is a solid all-around hitter.  His OBP is over .390 now, that's pretty damn good.  He's not a great cleanup hitter, that's all.
