Red Sox Sign Mike Napoli
Bushy-bearded Mike Napoli has agreed to return to Boston for two years and $32M. That said, Mets fans can scratch him off the list of potential first basemen to acquire this winter. Though, why would the Mets be interested in a first baseman, when they have a “glut” of them?
Hey, it would’ve been nice for the Mets to bag the bearded Bostonian, but their budget currently has no space. Besides, there are still a few free agent first baseman available that are worth considering, including Corey Hart, James Loney, Mark Reynolds, Michael Young, Kendrys Morales, and Kevin Youkilis. You know, if the Mets wanted to add to their glut.
What’s your take on the Napoli signing? Do you care? Is it irrelevant to the goings-on in Flushing?
