Gresh & Hardy are joined by CBS Baseball Insider Jon Heyman for his weekly visit. Heyman gives the guys details of Mike Napoli’s hip injury, recaps the Red Sox offseason and comments on the Terry Francona book.
Why did it take so long to get the Napoli deal done? What were the Red Sox trying to protect themselves from?
They also discussed Alfredo Aceves role with the Sox. Will he be a starter or a swing guy? Do they need to give him a defined role? How do the Red Sox fill the need for pitching help?
