Sox Mike Napoli Mashing The Ball
Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli now leads the majors with 25 RBI in the first 19 games. A grand slam and five more RBI in Monday night’s 9-6 win over Oakland.
Just how good are Napoli’s numbers? Check out these factoids…
* In the last 71 years, the only Sox player to have 25 RBI in the first 19 games – Mo Vaughn.
* Manny Ramirez holds the Sox record with 31 RBI in April. Napoli and the Sox play seven more games this month.
* If Napoli continues at this pace (what are the chances?) he will have 213 RBI over the 162-game schedule.
