    But only 91 total innings over the past 2 seasons. Napoli didn't catch at all this season, but he caught about 70 games last season.

    Seems like unless they'd be disastrous defensively, they'd be better off losing David Ross than Ortiz or Napoli.

    •  No catching for Nap (2+ / 0-)

      His hip condition killed that. It may even be written in his contract, but the Sox have said they won't ever use him as catcher.

      •  Well, that settles that... (0+ / 0-)

        That's definitely a bit of a handicap for Boston. Have they decided they're going to play him over Ortiz at first in the games in St. Louis, or will they go game-by-game and play the match-ups?

        •  I'm guessing it's a nightly mid game switch (0+ / 0-)

          Nap turned out to be an excellent defensive 1st baseman, and since he is currently in a good offensive zone, I'd save Papi for pinch hitting at a critical time. Love Papi to death, but he's enough of a diva that he wouldn't take kindly to such a role, so I think he gets a start or two in SL.
