Mike Napoli 'Double-Trolls' Richard Sherman

In case you're not already a big fan of Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli—you will be now. After New England vanquished the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, avid Pats fan Napoli tweeted out two priceless photos of Richard Sherman. Both mocked Sherman's vamping at the cameras after his team took a 24-14 second-half lead. Napoli made sure the Seattle cornerback knew he was correct in 1.) displaying the final margin of New England's victory and 2.) telling the world how many Super Bowl rings Tom Brady possesses. Nice going, Mikey!

Mike Napoli Ranked 8th Best MLB First Baseman

MLB Network has ranked Red Sox first-sacker Mike Napoli as the eighth-best first baseman in baseball. As the chart shows, Napoli finished just behind former Red Sox prospect Anthony Rizzo and just ahead of former Boston first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. The network ranked Detroit's Miguel Cabrera as the top player at the position, followed by Arizona's Paul Goldschmidt and White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu. Napoli—who recently underwent radical jaw surgery to relieve a serious sleep apnea condition—should be poised for another big year in Carmine Hose.
