I have no idea why the Yankees would even want Napoli after their acquisition of Eli Whiteside from the San Francisco Giants.
All jokes aside, we have no idea what’s going to happen with Russell Martin. And as Brien wrote earlier, Russell is garnering interest from a few teams so maybe getting Napoli could be a good thing for the Yankees? Plus, he’s batting .375/.531/.625/1.156 at the new Stadium – in (Small Sample Size Alert!) 24 at bats.
There have been whispers of A.J. Pierzynski possibly being a target, no pun intended, for the Yankees as well.
It’s only November 12 and there is a lot at stake this offseason for the Yankees so it will be interesting to see how it goes.
