    You walked right into this one buddy, please look at your own players before you judge others. Napoli is a steal compared to Tex.

    By the way, his second half OPS was .925. Lol not that thats gonna happen
    The more I think about it, the more him playing 1st at Fenway makes him at least a 3 WAR player. I think he actually has a chance to put up a 4-5 WAR season in the next 3 years. Don't think it'll be the norm, but I think that stadium + Yankee stadium could help him put up some gaudy numbers.

    Toronto and Baltimore are also hitters parks. Tampa has the only pitchers park in the entire division.

    Does this mean Boston's speech impediment announcers no longer have to say Salt-er-ler-mer-ker-er's name?

    Good pickup.

    I'm expecting career numbers out of him power-wise as he's sure to mash at Fenway.

    I kind of like this signing for the Red Sox.

    I thought Napoli was going to sneak in a 4 year deal, and he shouldn't have been given one. And it's really interesting now that the Rangers didn't make that qualifying offer.

    I wonder how many games he will actually catch. But if it's more than 30 per year, I think that really helps make this worth it.

    They won't have to carry a back up catcher now on their roster too, which is nice.

    Well first place is a lot better than 26 games back in last place too, so oh well.

    That has nothing to do with Napoli or his Tex argument, but go ahead

    Thank god! Get that guy outta the AL West. Guy killed my team (Angels). I'd rather only see him 6 times a year as opposed to 16.

The Sox can still spend money and put a better product on the field we'll letting the farm develop and this was a good step towards that.

    Yes it was a bit of a sarcastic comment, but Red Sox fans had it coming. In any big money signing thread most Sox fans acted uninterested and happy to not make the big moves as they'd rather wait for their propspects to take them to the promise land, now this happens and that was never the case. I argued with a few that the prospect list wasn't the type you could rest your laurels on and expect to win championships with, I was attacked and assured the Red Sox would be letting the youngsters play. Since then they've signed Jonny Gomes and Mike Napoli... Just saying boys, no need to get hostile.

    By the way, if you read the rest of my post, it's clear I think it's a good signing for the Red Sox.

    I don't think he has to repeat the 2011 AVG to be productive.
    dude has big time power.
    in 2012 he had 24 HR in only 108 games.
    in 2011 he had 30 HR in only 113 games.

    I don't think he will come anywhere near the .320 AVG he had in 2012, so if you're expecting something like that then expect to be disappointed. but that doesn't mean he can't have a good enough AVG. .270 or even .260 wont be that bad for the power numbers he could produce.

    what would one expect? .260-.270 AVG with 30-35 HR if he plays say 120-130 games?

    AVG is a horrible way to judge a players worth. Not to mention, have you seen contracts that have been given out lately? They're all overpaid, what difference does it make? I think it's a good deal for BOS simply because they held it to 3 years.



    Playoff Bochy.

    His 2011 season was obviously an outlier. If he can be a .250/.350/.500 hitter during his tenure in Boston (which honestly, I think he will) then this will turn out to be a great signing.
