The defense rests in the first inning - School of Roch

BOSTON - The Orioles no longer have three errors this season. And I'm no longer welcome in manager Buck Showalter's office. Kidding. He doesn't really believe in jinxes. Right? Jonathan Schoop mishandled Mike Napoli's grounder with runners on the corners...

Red Sox notes: As Mike Napoli, Koji Uehara return, Shane Victorino closes on joining them

The initial weeks of the Red Sox season have been characterized mostly for the players whom the team has lost or come close to losing. Already, the team has endured disabled list stints by Shane Victorino and Will Middlebrooks, while enduring scares with Dustin Pedroia, Koji Uehara and Mike Napoli. But for the first time, the [...]

Napoli back in lineup for Sox vs. Sale

CHICAGO—After sitting out one game with a dislocated ring finger on his left hand, Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli is back in the starting lineup, batting cleanup against White Sox ace Chris Sale. The Red Sox can use Napoli’s bat. They’re batting a collective .173 (36 for 208) while losing four of the first six games on this trip and have scored just 18 runs. Six of those runs came Wednesday night, when White Sox pitchers walked 15 batters but stranded 16 Sox runners on base before Jackie Bradley Jr.

Red Sox lineup: Mike Napoli returns against White Sox left-hander Chris Sale

The Red Sox will be going up against one of the top young pitchers in the game in White Sox left-hander Chris Sale, and so it was likely with a mixture of relief and excitement that Red Sox manager John Farrell was able to write Mike Napoli‘s name back into the cleanup spot in his [...]

Napoli (And Twisted Finger) Are Day-To-Day

(Photo At LarryBrownSports.com)The Red Sox are falling like snowflakes on a mid-April Boston night. The latest is first-baseman Mike Napoli—who dislocated his left ring-finger with an ill-advised head-first slide into second base. The unnatural right-angle of the finger begged the question of whether it was broken. It was not. He might even play tonight. How hockey player-like of Napoli [White House pronunciation: NA-POLE-EE]. His absence in the ninth inning last night (and Mike Carp's presence) likely led to the 2-1 defeat when Carp could not pick an errant Xander Bogaerts throw.
