    Trade Napoli

    Maybe someone will two tickets to the World Series, or something, for him. He has to be the biggest rally-killer we've had in 50 years.

    Tickets or a bag of balls. Thank goodness his hip issue came up and we are only stuck with him for one year.

    A lot of people wanted Gomes gone earlier in the year too.  Not hearing much from them lately.

    Right on, a giant rally killer and a strike out machine. Will he break the Red Sox record for K's in one season by a hitter?

    I love the job Farrell is doing with this club, but Napoli has got to go, he's awful!

    Re: Trade Napoli

    The Sox scored 4 runs tonight and Napoli scored one of them.  They reached base 10 times and he had one of them.  Not really a disastrous night.  Relax folks.  He'll get some more RBI for you soon.

    I know the stat guys claim that strikeouts aren't that significant, but personally they really bother me.

    Everytime Napoli strikes out, I try remember some of his bombs to ease the pain.

    If it's any consolation, the stat guys also claim that he's more effective the second half of the season.  Maybe this will translate into fewer strikeouts.

    You should bring back your 'Gomes gotta go' thread.  A HR and a 2B tonight.

    His OPS is > .900 since you started that thread.

    Maybe, but some of those rallies ended because he drove everyone home.

    2nd on the team in HRs and RBIs.

    In any case, a nice little win agains the EE, and this is what you take from it???

    Naps carried us for a while with very timely hits. He made pitchers fear walking Papi to face him.

    He will likely get hot again before the season is over.

    We have Carp, Nava, and Papi (in NL parks) if his struggles continue.

    He's a good clubhouse presence! Translation: He can't hit his mother with both hands! My brother says if he ever opens his eyes again, and stops stepping down the third base line everytime he swings and misses he'll be just fine!! If and when I pick the correct  6 numbers in the powerball, I'll be just fine!!!

    Thanks for the sensible side of things ... 

    No Napoli, no early season success ... folks sure get short memories.

    He's always been a streaky player ... we were fortunate to get the hot streak, power and runs produced early on ..

     

    Football mentality ... short season, hurry, do something.   Baseball is a loooong proposition.  Of course these are the same guys who cut Papi down ... expect nothing less from those who expect nothing less...

    Re: Trade Napoli

    Napoli could get hot again, but given his hip issue, that is far from a guarantee. For April and May, he had 9 HR and 40 RBI. For June and July, he has 3 HR and 18 RBI. That is a huge delta.

    The biggest concern is balls put in play. He has struck out 124 times in 327 AB. That's over 35%.

    He could still drive in 100 runs so who cares if he does it by 30+ homers or 40+ doubles? 100 ribbies doesn't grow on trees for this line-up, I'll take them from Nap and Ortiz.




    And this from Napoli's biggest detractor in March...

    A lot of the diapoointment in Napoi is against expectations.

    Since May 1, Napoli has a .755OPS and 37RBI.  Everyone wants him gone.

     

    Since May 1, Nava has a .772OPS and 36 RBI.  Not a word...

    His numbers are above average for a #5 hitter.

    Napoli 257/342/443

    Avg AL #5 251/321/431

    You have to keep in mind that offensive production has gone down significantly all over baseball.

    The K's are a forward looking stat.  His YTD production has been 'okay', but the K's would keep me from re-signing him.

    The average fans expectations are always high, this I understand.  But you should expect more than average from the 5th spot on a first division team; especially a team that is anticipating a playoff run.

    I think bashing Napoli is just stupid.  But I wouldn't call those numbers "above average".  Marginally above average at best.
