I have no problem letting Martin walk and letting Napoli take over. But he'll demand a big contract, as he should, and I doubt the Yankees will go that route.

As for the Sox...they have Salty, Lavarnway and the newly added Ross. But Napoli, obviously, tops them all.

Doubt the Red Sox sign him, they like Salty and he is young. I could see him going to the Yankees though. Way rather have him over Martin and they would pay for it too. Great addition to a team. Napoli is a great player and really good in the playoffs. Hopefully he can stay healthy.

Would love for the Yankees to sign him.


His awful defense and soon to be declining production would fit in well with the Yankees future

Soon to be 32 years old and had one monstrous year. Also I believe the Rangers clubhouse said he was an issue/ cancer during the season. I think he even gave out a players cell phone number to the public on twitter or something

CJ Wilson posted Napoli's number on twitter.

And I'd take his offense without question. But being 32 isn't a prime age to be looking for that big contract and I don't think the Yankees would give him one.

Once again only concerned with offense.

Pitching and Defense wins championships.

I don't recall him hurting the Rangers in 2011-12...
