Ladies & Gentlemen, Boys & Girls, the catcher first baseman, Mike Napoli.
3 years for a 31 year old guy the Rangers didn't want to go beyond 2 years for?
Considering the mahket and the club's needs, I'm fine with this deal at 3-years.
Napoli's a right-handed bat with powah, has demonstrated above average OBP skills, and provides us with some flexibility behind the plate.
Yeah, and I guess it's what you do when you have money to spend but want to get younger ovah the longah term and stay competitive in the shortah term.
