11:12PM EST December 3. 2012 - NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Boston Red Sox have agreed to terms with free-agent catcher Mike Napoli on a three-year, $39 million contract, a Red Sox front-office executive confirmed to USA TODAY Sports.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the signing has not yet been finalized.

Napoli, who spent the last two years with the Texas Rangers, will be used mostly as a first baseman, while occasionally being a backup catcher and designated hitter. The Red Sox also are pursuing free agent right fielders Nick Swisher and Cody Ross.

There is no doubt in my mind that Mike Napoli and his fat face will kill the yankees for three years.

Terrible? Have you checked his Fenway splits? They need a right handed power bat behind Ortiz. It's only a 3 year deal. 13 million isn't that much. He's a good guy in the clubhouse, this is a GOOD signing.

Great signing. He will probably hit at least .250 with 25 home runs and an OBP upwards of .350.

Not sure about the Victorino signing. It's a bit too risky for me.

Tells me more about what they think of Ellsbury than anything. Have to remember Jackie Bradley will be in the majors sooner than later. These deals are building toward that future.

Yeah, but I don't really see the point of paying that much for Victorino if you really think Bradley is going to be ready soon.

Because they aren't bringing back Ellsbury after his deal is done because Boras wants too much money. I think once all of the pieces come together, it will make more sense. They still need to bring in an arm or two for the rotation and probably trade a catcher.

Didn't make an offer. Didn't even negotiate at all. Sounds like they did their due diligence in seeing what the asking price was and moved to other things. They didn't settle for Victorino when they weren't ever interested in signing Hamilton.

Again, stick to your team and creating other useless threads.

Victorino signing is brutal. He's a platoon player and mediocre defender making 13 mil. Horrible.

Above average defender and 5 years younger than Torii Hunter who also got 13 million a year.

Sox will be paying Victorino and Napoli a combined 26 million. Yankees will be paying ARod 28 million. So there is that.

Not sure what Arod has to do with it. Everyone knows that was a horrible contract. Victorino just isn't good. He's an average at best defender and he can't hit righties at all. Sure he'll hit against 20% of pitchers and play OK D. Whopdie friggin do. 13 million?
