Red Sox: Nothing new on Napoli

Its been more than three weeks since a deal between the Red Sox and free agent Mike Napoli was reported at the winter meetings. But, there has been relatively little to report since then. And, that remains the situation.

On a Wednesday afternoon conference call with the media, Sox assistant general manager Brian OHalloran -- filling in for GM Ben Cherington, who is traveling -- could offer no updates.

I cant comment on that specifically, OHalloran said. Nothing new from what Ben said the last time he spoke with the media. We continue to talk to a number of free agents and the conversations are on-going as Ben alluded to previously.

Minutes after the Celtics were eliminated by the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals, the folks at Bleacher Report tweeted a video that celebrated the C’s one victory in the series. 

Ouch. 

There are 17 Celtics championship banners that actually exist and hang at TD Garden. You won’t be seeing one for being a “finalist” or celebrating an actual sweep, such as Spurs over Cavs in the NBA Finals.
