Red Sox Wining And Dining Napoli On Weekend

Enjoying The Swan Boats?
Despite the fact that they don't want to sign him to a four-year deal, the Red Sox are wooing free-agent Mike Napoli this weekend by showing him the sights around Boston. It's still a little puzzling that BenCher is so obsessed with Napoli, whose numbers in 2012 were a sharp drop-off from his career year of 2011. Sure, he has a Fenway swing, and has always done well at America's Most Cramped Ballpark. But is Mike Napoli really someone we want to watch wind down his talent on a four-year deal? This is prudence? This is discipline? Not from where we sit. Let hope he flies out of Logan on Monday a disgruntled free agent.
