    All signs point to Napoli, Sox reaching agreement. Sides are working on one/year deal; agent Grieper would not discuss specifics

    There appears to be a possibility Napoli may have to undergo additional physical before deal is done
    That hip must be really bad, or maybe he has the worst agent ever.

    Interesting and annoying.

    I like my earlier idea. A series of 3 1 year contracts with a base salary each year and PA targets for bonuses and the next year of the deal earned, or a small buyout.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Some jerks never learn.....

    By Peter Abraham, Globe Staff

    The Seattle Mariners have obtained outfielder/first baseman Mike Morse from the Nationals, part of a three-team trade with the Oakland Athletics.

    Washington picked up a high-ceiling pitching prospect from Oakland, righthander A.J Cole. The Nationals traded Cole to Oakland last year to obtain Gio Gonzalez.

    This obviously squashes the idea that the Red Sox could abandon Mike Napoli and trade for Morse. The Sox spoke to the Nationals about Morse and decided the price was too steep. They have preferred Napoli from the start, and that remains the case.

    But perhaps it opens another door to improve their bench.

    In Morse, Kendrys Morales, Justin Smoak, and Mike Carp, Seattle has four players who can play first base.

    Carp and Morse also play the outfield. Corner outfielders Michael Saunders, Jason Bay, Raul Ibanez, and Casper Wells are on the roster, too.

    Carp would seem readily available. The 26-year-old lefthanded hitter has 77 career starts at first base and 48 in left field. He has hit a fairly modest .241/.323/.398 against righthanders in his career. But Carp could provide some bench depth for the Sox at two positions.

    Nick Cafardo reported Wednesday that the Red Sox are open to the idea of trading for a lefthanded hitter who can play first base and a corner outfield spot. Carp is far from an ideal player, but he does fill that job description and is a year away from being eligible for arbitration.

    Or they could sign Casey Kotchman as a backup first baseman and keep Ryan Kalish or Daniel Nava for the outfield.

    One way or another, you get the idea that the Sox will be filling the holes in their roster fairly soon.
    I wouldnt mind Carp hes still young decent hitting

    A one year $5 million deal, that could get him up to that original 13 million AAV if he doesn't spend time on the DL.

    That's spectacular. I really didn't like the 3 year deal in the first place. This is great.
    I no longer care about anything here except for the Entertainment Forum, which sucks; the Music forum, which sucks; and the Magic forum, which does NOT suck.

    Love y'all!

    Except for all of y'all.
