3 years, $39 million. He is expected to become their regular 1B.

The baseball player, not the entire city of Naples.

As a Catcher he puts up very good numbers -- last year notwithstanding. However, as a 1B his numbers won't cut it. A terrible signing, considering the money, if he's to be the everyday 1B and not Catch.

I thought he meant the entire football club.

Not really. The market is so thin and they don't have a ton of prospects. But they have cash. LaRoche gave no indication that he wanted to play there, and he was the lead for that position.

They could've done worse than Napoli for three years.

ESPN.com reports they are also in discussion with the Mets to get Dickey.
