The World Series starts tonight in Boston. No player on either team will be more fun to watch than Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli.
Napoli is no stranger to Busted Coverage. In the past, we’ve featured the now-bearded slugger in a pool with bolt-on queens; making holiday cookies with a NSFW shirt and leaving tickets for his porn star pal Rachel Starr.
In just one season, the former Angel and Ranger has become one of the more beloved Red Sox, which means the free agent to-be could be in line for a big pay day this winter.
One Masshole loves Napoli so much, he tried to steal his glove from the Sox clubhouse after the team clinched the AL pennant on Saturday. (Clown move, bro; Napoli is not exactly known for his glove work.)
Fans heading to chilly Fenway on Wednesday for Game 1 will be met with increased security measures. That’s less about some douche trying to lift Napoli’s glove and more about lingering fears in the wake of April’s Boston Marathon bombings. Of course, news outlets hyped the added cops rather than a World Series between great baseball towns.
Regardless, the series figures to go better for Napoli than it did in 2011 when he was with the Rangers.
