In response to southpaw777's comment:
Its probably the best offer he'll get, so if I were him id take it.
All that former red sox stuff goes out the window since he was traded mid season to the white sox.
And no way is Youk better than naps at this point in their careers.
You may want to review the stats from last season - Youks had a better year than Napoli. By just about any measure - Youks was better offensively than Napoli.
And then there is defense.
So funny to watch people just accept what the Sox tell you without looking at actual facts.
Funny how you assume I dont look at numbers. I have my opinion, and that is Id rather have Naps for 3 years than youk. Pretty simple. Youk is a lot slower defensively now and has gone down offensively for the last 3 years along with being constantly injured.
Id rather pay napoli 13M per than Youk 12M. I would be willing to bet that napoli has better production than Youk for the next 3 years..

Looks about even the last 3 years as far as I can see...Except Naps has better HR numbers and hes 3 years younger...
