Mike Napoli Surviving Blizzard ’15 with Cards Against Humanity and Shots

As a Californian, all this “Blizzard of 2015” business doesn’t really resonate with me (more of an earthquake/fire guy), but the idea of hunkering down at home and waiting it out seems like it could be kind of fun.

Player Profile #153: Mike Napoli | 1B | BOS

Last season Mike Napoli hit just 17 HR in 500 PA, breaking a string of six consecutive 20-homer season despite posting just his third 500 PA season. Formerly a catcher, Napoli never really had much of a chance to earn consistent playing time. In Boston, now he has it (even though Allen Craig lurks on the bench).
