    "four times the K's as he does HRs" is certainly better than Napoli's ratio. Since donning a Red Sox uniform, Napoli has 800 AB's with 35 HR's to 281 SO's. Eight times the K's to HR's. more »

    Just as a frame of reference, here's a look at the numbers for Cespedes for 2012, 2013, and so far in 2014 as compared to Napoli for the same time frame.  I chose Napoli for comparison as he is the on more »
