Sox Shifting Focus From Napoli To LaRoche

J. Newton—Washington Post
According to a report by CBSSports' Jon Heyman, the Red Sox have moved on from Mike Napoli and his demand for a four-year contract and have pivoted to free agent Adam LaRoche—who is believed to be seeking only a three-year deal. In our view, LaRoche is a better option irrespective of the contract length issues. Last year, LaRoche hit .271, with 33 HRs and 100 RBIs at age 32.
