Napoli (And Twisted Finger) Are Day-To-Day

The Red Sox are falling like snowflakes on a mid-April Boston night. The latest is first-baseman Mike Napoliwho dislocated his left ring-finger with an ill-advised head-first slide into second base. The unnatural right-angle of the finger begged the question of whether it was broken. It was not. He might even play tonight. How hockey player-like of Napoli [White House pronunciation: NA-POLE-EE]. His absence in the ninth inning last night (and Mike Carp's presence) likely led to the 2-1 defeat when Carp could not pick an errant Xander Bogaerts throw.
