Red Sox slugger Mike Napoli took to the streets of Boston after Saturday’s 2013 World Series championship parade and made a few new friends along the way. Twitter is a beautiful, beautiful thing …

Cheers to Napoli. I know that I’d be doing the same exact thing. Tony Lee sums this up nicely:

“I want to be here. I love this place,” Napoli told Rob Bradford of WEEI.com shortly after the final out of the World Series. “They’ve treated me so good here. The way they’ve taken care of me, its’ unbelievable. When the time comes I’m pretty sure we’re going to have some conversations. I hope to be back here next year.”

Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports that Colby Rasmus has agreed to a minor league deal with the Baltimore Orioles.

Rasmus, 31, played only 37 games with the Rays last year. The reason: the previous offseason he underwent surgery to repair his left hip labrum and his core muscle, and the hip continued to bother him throughout spring training. He began the season on the disabled list and made his debut on May 2, hitting .281/.318/.579 in 129 plate appearances before going back on the DL June 23. He’d never return, “stepping away” from the game in the words of the club, which placed him on the restricted list for the remainder of the season.
