Here is what Ben Cherington had to offer about the Mike Napoli situation when he was on MLB Network Radio on Wednesday:

"All I can say is that at the outset of the offseason it was our intent to add offense at first base, and we pursued Mike Napoli as everyone knows. Until there's a deal, there's no deal, and it's clear, I think, everyone knows that there's some issues that we've had to try to work through.

"We remain hopeful that we'll be able to work through them ... I don't want to speak for Mike, but I hope he feels the same way. Until we do [work something out] there's nothing to report, there's no deal and we'll just have to keep working at it. There's a reason we pursued him in the first place, we thought he can help our team, and we still do. We'll have to see where it ends up."
