Napoli is the epitome of the old saw about speaking softly and carrying a big stick. He is the strong, silent type.
He wasn’t much for reliving his monster home run in detail or being on the verge of playing in the World Series for the second time in three seasons.
He made a statement in Detroit.
Now, it’s the turn of Tigers fans to curse his name and his long home runs.
We feel your pain, Detroit. But it feels so good to be on Mike Napoli’s good side.
