Just like Tom Caron says in the video above, by now we figured Mike Napoli would already be searching for homes in the Boston area. However, the union between Napoli and the Red Sox isn’t official yet, leading some to worry about whether his deal has hit a potential snag.
As The Boston Globe’s Peter Abraham speculates, chances are Napoli’s physical discovered something unknown, and though it may not be enough to scuttle the deal entirely, it may be an issue of contract language that’s holding up an official introduction.
Nonetheless, in the event the Napoli issue does turn out to be serious, it could have equally serious implications on the Red Sox’ offseason. See more in the above video.
