→ Tom Verducci says “Napoli among smart signings that have Red Sox on the way back”

Don’t look now, but the Red Sox are making their way back. With the signings of David Ross, Jonny Gomes and Mike Napoli, and while staying away from deals longer than three years, Boston has made an aggressive, smart start toward addressing two fixes: a more dynamic offense and a more responsible clubhouse.

This is probably the most positive take I have heard on the Napoli signing. I hope it turns out to be the most correct.
