Re: Sox Sign Overbay to Minor League Contract
I don't mind this at all since it is a minor league deal. The only thing I do not like is that we plan on having Napoli as our main starter at 1B. I don't think it is going to be much of a platoon. If Napoli gets hurt, it is nice to have someone other than Gomez to compete at 1B. I am not a big fan of having Overbay take up a roster spot when he can only play 1B in a pinch hit/defensive replacement role. He gives us no versatility, but I guess if we have an extra spot for him and he performs well in ST, then maybe he is worth giving a shot.
