Hardly a "great" player. He has been a back-up catcher most of his career until he found a power stroke.
He is a defensive liability at 1B, IMO, and we know he is not going to catch with the hip issue. It will be a learning curve most of the year for him.
You have to admit, hes looked very comfortable over there and has made some nice scoops of balls in the dirt as well as a couple nice diving plays. Hes a lot better than some here give him credit for.
I remember Youk was a very good 3b, but when switched to 1b he excelled. Naps is a good athlete and a good ballplayer. Hes been a nice surprise so far at 1b as well.
To those of you bashing him and the signing...Its Ok to admit hes doing very good.. Nobody will think less of you...Although Im sure some egos will get in the way of that.
i like NAPS. rather have him than that 2-faced, boring a-gone. he definitely has the fenway swing
and will provide good protection in the line-up for ortiz.
And his defense so far doesnt look to be a liability at all...
