Sportsman of the Week Ending 10/20/2013

An amazing week of League Championship Baseball ended with the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals emerging as Pennant Winners. Last week we honored a Cardinal, this week a Red Sox.  Mike Napoli pretty much single-handedly (offensively at least) won two of the four games the Red Sox needed to advance.  On Tuesday, Napoli hit a solo shot in the 7th inning for the Red Sox 1-0 win.  On Thursday, he went deep in the 2nd inning to stake the Sox to a 1-run lead, which ended up being that margin.  Over the week, he went 6-16, 2 2B, 2 HR, 2 RBI.  He was 6-12 for the 3 games in Detroit, with an O-fer the series finale in which the offense had enough without him.  But his is a worthy recipient of the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
