The Red Sox rumor roller coaster continues as the Trade Deadline draws closer.

With Jon Lester and John Lackey at the center of rumors, Mike Napoli spoke will Trenni Kusnierek to reflect on his teammates.

"We're a family here," said Napoli. "We're brothers and we all care for each other.  If those guys leave it's going to be something missing that we have every day. We spend every day together, so it will be tough.

"We already lost one guy in Jake [Peavy] who was a great friend, he's like a brother. It's tough, you've just got to root them on and hope the best for them."

How would a move change the dynamic in the clubhouse?

"Whoever comes in here will be part of our family and we're going to treat him the same way." said Napoli, "You just got to move on and keep going. Anyone that comes here is going to be a part of this and they'll be welcome."
