    Red Sox sign Napoli, 3 years $39M

    Mike Napoli - C - Rangers WEEI.com's Rob Bradford reports that the Red Sox are "closing in on an agreement" with Mike Napoli.

    The deal is believed to be for three years. Napoli slugged a total of 54 home runs and tallied a total of 131 RBI over his last two seasons with the Rangers, and should add a nice element of power to the heart of the Red Sox order. He is expected to start at first base for Boston.
    Per WEEI.Com

    Mehh, I guess it is an upgrade, but they better hope he produces like he did in 2011 as opposed to 2012. Now all the red Sox need is to trade Lester, Lackey and Buckholz and then get a new rotation and they'll be good.

    If I were them I'd do a mini blow up and trade Pedroia (I know, he is the captain and a fan fav) and their starters. They could use the new prosopects to pick up younger talent in a year or two.

    They have a lot of question marks and I don't know if signing Napoli to a three eyar deal is what they need. They need time.

    appears to be a deal:

    Mike Napoli, Red Sox Agree To Terms
    By Luke Adams [December 3 at 10:10am CST]
    The Red Sox have reached an agreement on a three-year contract with Mike Napoli, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe (via Twitter). WEEI.com's Rob Bradford was the first to report that the two sides were closing in on a deal.

    Financial details of the deal aren't known yet, but Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe tweets that Boston likely paid a larger annual salary to get a three-year contract done, rather than going to four years for Napoli.

    Napoli had a down year by his standards for the Rangers in 2012, hitting .227/.343/.469. However, he has a career .863 OPS, and is one season removed from a .320/.414/.631 line. While Boston likely doesn't expect him to produce at that level again, the team will make him its primary first base option, according to Bradford. Cafardo tweets that the 31-year-old will also catch occasionally for the Sox.

    That's less money than I thought he'd get.

    Not very surprising. 3/39 is very fair for both in my opinion.

    We will see. Too bad he can't catch otherwise it would be so much better. Better hope he reverts to form because nobiody wants a 1B that hits 25 homers and hits .220

    haha why would I be mad? I'm just saying he needs to rebound to be worth the contract. If he hits like he hit last year, you might as well sign Carlos Pena for $38 million less and 2 fewer years

    Not to mention Carlos Pena is pretty darn good with the glove at 1B.
