When Arod, Jeter, or Tex need DH days - Napoli can either slide over to 1B or to Catcher (and he is a better defender than Montero was so I don't want to hear about that) Napoli would be a very good fit for us.
I like the idea of signing both Martin and Napoli we would have a sick catching tandem far better than any other in baseball.
Napoli can DH most of the time as well. So Martin will get his playing time, Napoli will get his ABs, and the veterans will get their occassional DH rest.
Napoli brought in to serve the Jesus Montero role?
YES sign me up for that. Would be a genius move and a sure fire offensive improvement / boost.
The Yanks are trying to cut down on payroll, if we sign both we are looking at 20mil for everyday catching! Can't see it happening, if Napoli is healthy and up for catching everyday I would be happy to get him.
