“Mike had to work on stuff that didn’t come naturally to him, more so than other catchers who maybe do it more naturally.” –Mike Scioscia

Ask Mitchell Boggs and he’ll tell ya, if you’re trying to keep fastballs on this planet, maybe think down and away to Napoli.  Not that it would matter if he finds a groove.  Napoli’s MVP-worthy 10 RBIs in the 2011 World Series tied him for most in a Fall Classic in the last 52 seasons (Sandy Alomar, 1997).**  He’s got lumberjack power to all fields and now he’s got the ring to prove it.

**(Other double-digit WS RBI guys: Bobby Richardson, 12, and Mickey Mantle, 11, in their losing effort vs Mazeroski’s Pirates in 1960, Yogi Berra, 10, in a 7-game win vs Brooklyn in ’56, and White Sock Ted Kluszewski in a loss to the Dodgers in ’59)
