Why the Red Sox Should Not Trade Their Catchers

Mike Napoli is a 31-year-old man with a degenerative hip condition. There is no chance that he is playing catcher in a Red Sox uniform. I don’t care what he does when he most likely leaves town at the end of the year, but as long as he’s wearing a red ‘B’ on his cap […]
