.@RedSox GM Ben Cherington discusses the latest on Mike Napoli: "All I can say is that at the outset of the off-season it was our intent to add offense at 1st base and we pursued Mike Napoli as everyone knows. Until there's a deal, there's no deal, and it's clear, I think everyone knows, that there's some issues that we've had to try to work through. We remain hopeful that we'll be able to work through them...I don't want to speak for Mike [Napoli] but I hope he feels the same way. Until we do [work it out] there's nothing to report, there's no deal and we'll just have to keep working at it. There's a reason we pursued him in the first place, we thought he can help our team, and we still do. We'll have to see where it ends up."
