Red Sox and Mariners Front-Runners For Napoli

Mike Napoli is scheduled to meet with the Seattle Mariners, where he will ask for a four-year deal his other potential suitor has yet to offer, the Boston Red Sox.

With his services available, free-agent first baseman/catcher Mike Napoli could be landing a four-year deal this offseason if he plays his cards right. According to Jim Bowden of ESPN, the Boston Red Sox have an offer out to right-handed slugger, but Napoli is holding out for an additional year that would bring it to four.

If Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington continues to play the waiting game, he may find himself losing out on the 31-year-old, who is scheduled to meet with the Seattle Mariners, reports Bowden.
