    Dunno, just glad LaRoche isn't a temptation anymore.

    Napoli is fine for 3 years as long as the guaranteed money is short and the games played targets will carry the biggest load.


    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.”

    I think it will end up being a 2 year deal with an option. If this falls through no other team will offer Napoli more than 1 year, and the Red Sox would have extremely limited options at 1b.

    Yeah I think it will be 2 years with a vesting option for a 3rd year. Something like 500 ABs in 2014 or maybe 1000 ABs over the next 2 years.

    I think the reason why its taking so long because of the legal wording for protection for both sides. Napoli probably wants more guaranteed money, and the red sox probably want the same clause that drew, and Lackey have in the contract.

    It's taking time, but it will get done.

    You'd think we'd be signing the next coming of Jimmie Foxx, the way this is dragging out.

    Such a long process for such a 'meh' player... I already don't like him.

    Let's be glad that our pitchers get to face him this year. He's TB's starter it would seem.

    Ben Cherington told us that there is simply no deal with Mike Napoli right now but remain hopeful they can work thru issues to get it done

    Nope. LaRoche was known to have a 2yr deal from WAS long ago and there was talk only of the Sox offering more money, not more years.

    Should Napoli's deal end up at 2yrs + option (most likely IMO) it will be due to the medicals, not LaRoche.

    Horrible synopsis by Bowden. Check the rumor thread for a more complete statement.

    RT @sportstalkmatt: . @Jen_Royle just said that she heard RedSox and Mike Napoli are not speaking and the Sox are going in another direction


    doubt it though, given yesterday (not even yesterday) news
