  •  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.
