MIKE NAPOLI RUMORS & GOSSIP

Oh, Just Mike Napoli Launching a Home Run to the Fifth Deck of the Rogers Centre

Although his bat has been quiet of late, Mike Napoli remains a force to be reckoned with. The Italian Thor, you might say. For proof, I submit a home run he hit during last night’s Sox-Jays game at the Rogers Centre. A shot that hit the mother-effin’ fifth deck. And here’s a cleaner shot: Your browser does not support iframes. As you can see in my ****** vine, the ball landed...

Napoli absolutely launched the three-run blast in 10th inning off of the Blue Jays’ Sergio Santos. Seriously, though, you’re gonna need to see it to believe it. And even then you...

Mike Napoli and Shades of 2013

  It took until the fifth inning for the Red Sox to get their first hit, a Daniel Nava ground-rule double. And that was their only hit during regular frames. When Koji gave up the homer in the tenth, it looked like another nuts-against-the-cheese-grater loss. Then Big Papi and Mike Napoli channeled a little bit of 2013 magic. After Pedroia flied out to deep right, Ortiz went to...
