Mike Napoli’s Breakout Earns Him American League Player Of The Week Honors

Things changed in a hurry for Mike Napoli over the last week. The Boston Red Sox first baseman continued a painful cold streak to open the week, but he got red-hot to end the weekend against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Roundup: Nap Attack

Mike Napoli was a sleeper candidate entering the season but has been a disappointment. There have been signs of promise, and the biggest of those came this weekend. While he’s still hitting just .201, Napoli came alive this weekend with 4 HR while going 5-for-9 with 5 R and 8 RBI. Now with 8 HR on the season, this is what we were expecting to see from him to start the season...

Mike Napoli Really, Really Loves Beating Up On His Former Teams

Let’s face it: most of the first two months of this season have been largely forgettable for Mike Napoli and at least forty percent of his facial hair. He spent most of that time looking up at the Mendoza line, and I’m gonna blame most of that performance on the bizarre Ryan Dempster-esque coif he was sporting. Mike Napoli is a guy who needs to go full buzzcut or go home. Anything...

Mike Napoli’s Bat Powers Red Sox Offense

The Boston Red Sox offense showed some life this weekend. The team responded to a major lineup shuffle by Manager John Farrell. The shake-up saw Dustin Pedroia move to the lead-0ff spot with Hanley Ramirez flip-flopping with David Ortiz and Xander Bogaerts assuming the five spot in the order.

Wade, Nap And Bogie Pace Red Sox To 6-1 Win

(Associated Press)Good thing Mike Napoli's back is broad—because he's carrying the Red Sox offense right now. The burly first-sacker knocked in four runs today—including another 2-run HR as the Red Sox took the series from the Angles, 6-1. Quick-working Wade Miley was highly efficient—retiring the first 14 Angels he faced. He ended up going eight solid innings, giving up just...

Napoli Homers Twice In Sox Win!

The Red Sox were coming off a pretty brutal loss as they headed into Saturday game with the Angels.  The Sox had knuckleballer Steven Wright on the mound vs. CJ Wilson for the Angels.  Wright struggled out of the gate, but settled down nicely and let the Sox offense get those runs and then some back for him. Wright got into trouble in the 1st and the Sox were losing before the...
