    doubt it though, given yesterday (not even yesterday) news
    Good, I just don't think I could take one more aging player coming here for top money and breaking apart on our dime.

    Cherington on Napoli: Nothing to update. Still talking, means hope of a resolution, but can't offer detail on dialogue.

    Yes, the reports on Napoli are completely contradictory.

    Anyone thinks Nap will take 1 year and hit the market after? Put up numbers in Fenway, cashed in.

    The Sox, sources say, want to restructure Napoli’s deal with protective language. The four-year, $40 million free-agent contract that the Detroit Tigers awarded catcher Ivan Rodriguez in 2004 could serve as one model.

    Rodriguez’s deal stated that if he was on the disabled list for 35 or more days in ’04 or ’05 because of his lower spine, the Tigers could void the rest of the contract by paying him a $5 million buyout. The same provision also existed in ’06, but with a $4 million buyout.

    The Sox likely want to rework Napoli’s deal so that if a significant problem arose with his hip, they could escape with something less than a three-year guarantee.

    Napoli situation likely resolved by next week. #redsox working hard, another AL team or 2 still in. http://cbsprt.co/SJPTPM

    Mike Napoli and the Red Sox have made progress toward a new agreement, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports. The deal isn’t done, however, and both sides are keeping their options open. The situation should be resolved by next week at the latest.

    The Red Sox and Mike Napoli have nothing to report but they continue to make significant progress towards a ONE-YEAR agreement

    I like that it will be a one year deal. I'm definitely into the idea of a trade with Seattle for Smoak as a backup 1B too just because he is a bit of a lottery ticket for a starting 1B for the future.

    A 1 year deal would be great. I really wonder how bad his hip is.

    #Mariners close to acquiring Mike Morse, sources tell @Ken_Rosenthal and me.

    AJ Cole is a steep price to pay for Jaso, though I'm a huge fan of his too as AI knows.

    It appears likely that Napoli will receive less than $13 million, which was the average annual value of original 3-year, $39m deal

    Gordon Edes ‏@GordonEdes
    All signs point to Napoli, Sox reaching agreement. Sides are working on one/year deal; agent Grieper would not discuss specifics
    Gordon Edes ‏@GordonEdes
    There appears to be a possibility Napoli may have to undergo additional physical before deal is done
