Mike Napoli drives Red Sox win

There have been many candidates, but Mike Napoli has been the most deserving poster boy of the 2015 Red Sox’ paltry offense.Until last night, that is.Napoli’s two 0RBI and home run, along with the same bottom line for David Ortiz, led the Sox to a 4-3 victory against the Texas Rangers at Fenway Park in the opener of a six-game homestand.“I’m not saying it’s fixed or anything — I had a good night, I’ve got something to work on and a base to work off of,” Napoli said.

Mike Napoli can’t strand anger any longer

Mike Napoli can’t strand anger any longer

Mike Napoli had his Howard Beale moment yesterday.After swinging through a 98-mph third strike from Yankees reliever Dellin Betances in the eighth inning and stranding two more baserunners, Napoli spiked his bat, a rare show of emotion for the typically chilled-out Red Sox first baseman.It was the latest disappointment in a miserable first month of the season for Napoli. And like Beale, the beleaguered newsman from the movie “Network,” he was mad as hell.

Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli will be just fine

The fun thing about reading and writing about baseball in April is that the majority of the content is going to have the same basic theme. That theme, of course, is "It’s only April! Stop worrying so much you nincompoop!" More often than not, these themes are correct. We just don’t have a large enough of a sample to draw any significant conclusions. However, that does not mean we don’t have enough of a sample to at least recognize troubling trends. We’ve...
