Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli glad offseason is finally over

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) Like many Bostonians that make the trip south in February, Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli is glad spring training is finally here.

But he has a far different reason for being excited than...

Mike Napoli Surviving Blizzard ’15 with Cards Against Humanity and Shots

As a Californian, all this “Blizzard of 2015” business doesn’t really resonate with me (more of an earthquake/fire guy), but the idea of hunkering down at home and waiting it out seems like it could be kind of fun.

Player Profile #153: Mike Napoli | 1B | BOS

Last season Mike Napoli hit just 17 HR in 500 PA, breaking a string of six consecutive 20-homer season despite posting just his third 500 PA season. Formerly a catcher, Napoli never really had much of a chance to earn consistent playing time. In Boston, now he has it (even though Allen Craig lurks on the bench). So, what caused Napoli’s home run rate to dip last year? It was an...
