For Texas Rangers catcher Mike Napoli not to with the World Series MVP would take a huge twist during the final two games of the Series, which begin Wednesday in St. Louis. Napoli has two home runs and, after a bases-loaded double that broke a 2-2 tie in the bottom of the eighth inning, nine RBI in the Series, not to mention the fact that he threw out Allen Craig on the bases twice last night.
Napoli did blow Game 3 with his poor defense at first base, but with the series headed back into an NL park, one can only assume he will be behind the plate for both potentially remaining games, with Michael Young manning first base so as to keep his bat in the lineup.
Napoli is one good reason the Rangers will complete their defeat of St. Louis in Game 6. Here are 10 others.
