    Best catcher in the AL East.
    Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.

    If hitting a baseball is the toughest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest thing to do in sports.

      That would be Matt Wieters.

        time to make this another chuck norris thread?

        napoli is a very good hitter but not much of an defensive catcher. still a very good upgrade for boston.

          Yeah it's obviously an upgrade for Boston, but defense is kind of important too. There's a reason Napoli has played C sparingly since going to Texas. And there's a reason Mike Scioscia routinely started the no-hit Jeff Mathis over Napoli. He's fine as a 1B or DH, but there's no question Wieters is a better and more valuable all around player.

            I think Napoli will play 100+ games at 1B, 20 or so at C, and a few at DH. Ross/Lavernway (sp?) are my bets as catchers with Salty being traded.

              It may of been an upgrade but from what i saw of salty he didn't have too bad of a year and looked fine behind the Dish.

                If I'm not mistaking, both the Jays and Sox have 4 catchers on their rosters and the Yankees are trying to figure out who'll be their backstop next year.

                  And the Mets have no catchers on their roster, at least not Major League-worthy catchers. I hope they are on the phone to the Red Sox about Salty as we speak.

                    yes, I believe the Sox would rather send him to the Mets than the Yankees.

                    If I'm Toronto, I'd be tempted to throw Arencebia's name into the ring. He's got the raw power to have teams' interests.

                      I sure would, his stock probably wont be higher than it is now

                        The Blue Jays have already talked to the Mets about Arencebia, but they want R.A. Dickey in return.

                          I thought I heard they may use him mainly at 1B/DH

                            Wow, what an awful deal for the Red Sox. Mindnumbingly awful. The Yale grad leaves, and the Boston FO goes to the dregs.

                              Is there ever a deal that's looked at as a good signing anymore? Practically every player is on the wrong side of 30 and since there are always multiple teams looking for help, the price and years go up.

                              The only deal so far this offseason (and we'll have to see how he plays of course) that I can see as a possible value is what Toronto gave Melky.
