Mike Napoli will be facing his old team for the first time on Friday night in Texas, but there isn’t likely to be much bad blood in the stadium. After all, Texas fans have probably used up all of their vitriol on another former Ranger, Josh Hamilton.
Hamilton, of course, did all but slam the door against his own butt on the way out of the Lone Star State, and the people of Texas didn’t take too kindly to it. Napoli, on the other hand, hasn’t done anything to offend them, unless they consider his offensive onslaught against baseball so far this season, well, offensive.
NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette has some other thoughts on Napoli’s return to Texas in the above video. Check it out.
