    Napoli to test the market

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2013/11/napoli-to-explore-market-has-multiyear-offer-from-boston.html

     

    He already received multi yr offer from the Sox according to source.  But he's expected to test the market.  Wow.  Unless Sox' offer was humiliating him, a RING can change everything.

    I think the Sox made a mistake by not signing Abreu. If we had, there would be no reason to sweat Napoli.

    Re: Napoli to test the market

    It would be rather dumb of Napoli to take the Sox offer, without talking to other teams.

    Why do fans demand that players sign cheap contracts and then turn around and want to trade them, at the first sign of a slump?

    Loyalty is a two-way street.

    Hes seeing what his value is on the open market. It would be dumb of him not to. Im sure he will have communication with Boston this winter and see if they can at least match an offer if he should receive a higher one.

    Didn't Napoli do that last year and Boston gave him the best deal (before the hip degeneration revelation, of course)....what's changed?

    Everyone freaked out when the Sox let Victor Martinez and Adrian Beltre go.  How did that turn out?

    Oh yeah...A World Series title!

    Nothing surprising here...why shouldn't he test the market? How many top free agents have already jumped at their team's first offer?

    Not everybody is like Pedey who has a loyalty in Boston and took a discount to say. Can you imagine what teams would've thrown at him money wise if he teasted the market.

    Re: Napoli to test the market

    You re right that is not surprising.  He doesnt want that one year QO deal from Boston.  14 mm dollars just for one year mean nothing to anyone, and getting a long term contract is the safest way to finance themselves for the rest of their life!

    What can we do, nothing.  Of course his first destination is Boston, but if there are a team that is a far apart difference between two clubs, then Napoli can walks away!!

     Yes ! I hope he finds a happier team that grows longer beards. Take his 3 strike out a game elsewhere...We will miss him on real hot days... He was a human fan with all his swings and misses

    Pedroia's new contract pays him $14 mil. per year. I'm hoping that Ellsbury would accept an offer of $16 mil. per year.

    [/QUOTE]


    Pedey when completely healthy could've commanded in the neighborhood of 20 mill per year. something that Ellsbury would be looking for but the insane amount Cano wants. I would resign Ellsbury at 16 mill per year but with Boras as his agent I think he will be gone

    Not surprising.  Naps is like 80% of all players.  going to see who offers the most years and/or $.

    That would just be a transfer of sweat focus.  If they had given Abreu what we wanted, they wouldn;t have had to sweat Naps, but they would have to sweat how to fill out their roster after having huge resources tied up in an unporven player.

    Actually, it lead to Crawbust, which was a disaster. AGon was far from a disaster. 

    Avoid Ellsbury like the plague!

    [/QUOTE]

    Gonzalez was paid a ton of dough, cost a ton of prospects, could take responsiblity for his team collapsing, lost all of his power because of an injury, and was horrible in the club house. He actually was a bigger failure than Crawford.

    I hope we only offered him 2 years. He is a #6 hitter on most days. Like to see him back but only on realistic terms.

    Napoli has evolved into a pretty darn good first baseman and he provides right handed power not an easy thing to miss.
