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.”

Infielder Trevor Plouffe has signed a minor league deal with the Phillies, Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports. Plouffe asked for and was granted his release from the Rangers earlier this month.

Plouffe, 31, had a double and a home run in 17 plate appearances with Triple-A Round Rock to start the 2018 season. He spent last year with the Athletics and Rays, putting up a meager .198/.272/.318 batting line in 100 games.

Plouffe has mostly played third base throughout his career, but can also handle the other three infield spots and both outfield corners, so he’ll serve as organizational depth at Triple-A Lehigh Valley for the Phillies.
