Mike Napoli's Replacement, David DeJesus's Excited Wife, And Other Developments On The Hot Fucking Stove

Your roundup of all the hottest hot-stove items of the day (and whatever shit Ken Rosenthal is throwing against the wall.) This is ... HOT FUCKING STOVE!!!

• The Angels are trying to make their fans forget about how the team gave away Mike Napoli by replacing him with with the highly inferior—but also Italian—catcher Chris Iannetta.

• The Carl Crawford in Boston experiment could be coming to an abrubt end.

• Thad Levine, the Rangers' assistant general manager, declined to interview for the Astros' GM job.

• Somebody thought it was a good idea to give this guy a Hall of Fame vote.

• Jorge Posada is interested in playing for the Mets. The feeling isn't mutual.

• The Miami Marlins new uniforms sure look a lot like the ones the Miami Dealers wore in BASEketball. We expect them to develop a fierce rivalry with the New Jersey Informants.

Heath Bell is the new C.J. Wilson.

• A Japanese infielder won't play for any major league team except Seattle, for some reason.

David DeJesus's wife, Kim, is awfully thrilled about her husband's new team.
