A lot of rookies have a moneymoon period before the league adjusts and they cool off, but with Napoli, he's getting better as he goes to he may not be a honeymoon rookie, he may be this good. He's taking more walks, and that's where he's getting the homers.... Major tenet of hitting: IF you don't swing at bad pitches, they'll throw you good pitches to hit.

I'm sold... He hits to all fields, for power, takes walks, a quick swing to pull inside pitches... I don't think it's a rookie honeymoon.

One thing to keep in mind is that Martin now sits 1 out of every 5 games at the very least - Hall is Hendrickson's personal catcher.

Depends on your needs. Estrada for average, Napoli for power (his average won't stay up there).
I, unfortunately, have to bench Napoli for Estrada, because my league counts batter strikeouts, but he's the catcher to have right now.
