If you’ve watched the Red Sox this year, you've realized Mike Napoli isn't the same. Flashback to the 2013 season. Napoli’s first year with the Sox, he hit .259 with 23 home runs and 92 RBIs. He, and his large beard, was a key contributor all year and helped the Sox win the World Series. It seems like yesterday he was hitting solo shots off Verlander in the ALCS, but that was 2 years ago. This is now. After a great start to spring training, Napoli looked to be back to his 2013 self, but that didn't happen. Napoli is batting .192 as of tonight with 10 home runs and 30 RBIs. Other than the one week back in May, Napoli has been atrocious at the plate.
