TEAMS: Boston Red Sox
Scott Levesque Managing Editor There are a lot of things to be nostalgic about when it comes to the past: None creepy ice cream trucks, cartoons with substance, and of course, baseball. However, ask Mike Napoli if he misses his days as a catcher, and he'd probably give you the, "Are you kidding me" look. The Red Sox slugger is enjoying his time at first base, and is not in a hurry to give it up. On Monday, Napoli joined CSNNE to discuss, among other topics, his time at first base.
