Mike Napoli [2]Free agent first baseman Mike Napoli is expected to reject Boston’s $14.1-million, one-year qualifying offer and play the field.

Napoli made clear in the afterglow of the Red Sox championship he’d love to stay, but it appears both sides are likely to look around a bit for now.

None of the players took the qualifying offer last year, the first year it was implemented (it was $13.3 million last year), and it’s possible none will take it this year. It was reported here Napoli’s Red Sox teammate Stephen Drew also will turn down the qualifying offer. “I don’t think anyone will take it,” one GM opined.
