Mike Napoli Ranked 8th Best MLB First Baseman

MLB Network has ranked Red Sox first-sacker Mike Napoli as the eighth-best first baseman in baseball. As the chart shows, Napoli finished just behind former Red Sox prospect Anthony Rizzo and just ahead of former Boston first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. The network ranked Detroit's Miguel Cabrera as the top player at the position, followed by Arizona's Paul Goldschmidt and White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu. Napoli—who recently underwent radical jaw surgery to relieve a serious sleep apnea condition—should be poised for another big year in Carmine Hose.
