In response to GoUconn13's comment:
Why we are complaining about him? He moved down in the line up which that is all matter to us!!
Remember Boston had alot of strikeout guys especially the 2004 world series and 2007 world series championship teams. Remember Bellhorn striking out so many times, and still he made a couple big time homeruns helping Boston to win few games. Also that 2004 teams struck out at least 50 times more than the opponents in the entire season. Then the 2007 teams had Varitek, Drew, Youkils, Manny, and Papi all struck out over 90 to over 100 times. Still both of these teams won the title.
As long Napoli can try to make a couple key big time hits in every post season series like Belhorn, and that is all we care about.
K rate is way down on my list of offensive statistics. Naps is good-great in a lot of statistics that better project what a hitter is than K-rate. good post though. Just reinforces the point that K's aren't as bad as some people are making them out to be.
