Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. The Boston Red Sox on Monday officially signed Mike Napoli to a one-year deal, according to a league source, more than seven weeks after originally agreeing to terms with the free-agent first baseman/catcher on a three-year contract. The deal could be announced as soon as Tuesday. Napoli's contract is for one year with a base salary of $5 million, sources told ESPN last week. With incentives, he can play himself to a $13 million payday, which boosts the compensation to the level of the three-year deal he first agreed to with Boston early this offseason.  ESPNBoston | Source: Napoli officially in the fold We've written about this so many times I really don't have anything else to say about it. I guess it will be interesting to see if they have a press conference, and how forthcoming either party is about the negotiations. I'm guessing not very forthcoming, but in late January that's about all you can hope for for baseball news. The important thing: 20 days til pitchers and catchers report.
