During Spring Training, David Ortiz complained to the media that he didn't have any power behind him..which left him vulnerable at the plate..and as he put it..feeling a heavy burden of responsibility to carry the offense.
Well..it's early days yet..but I hope Big Papi is sleeping a little better at night knowing he need not worry about this particular concern any longer. Mike Napoli has more than stepped up to the plate offensively. This guy is a powerhouse and one tough dude. A dislocated finger and a nasty shot to the knee haven't been enough to stop this guy. I hope it continues.
Mike Napoli should be getting a lot more Red Sox Nation love than he does...!
