Napoli after home run off Tanaka: ‘What an idiot’ (Video)
Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka was mostly brilliant Saturday night against the Red Sox, working the full nine innings and allowing just two earned runs on seven hits. Sox slugger Mike Napoli didn’t exactly think Tanaka was brilliant, however, particularly late in the game.
The first baseman was heard shouting “What an idiot!” to his teammates (appreciated greatly by a chuckling David Ortiz) in the Boston dugout after taking Tanaka deep in the ninth inning to win the game for the Sox (starting at 1:13 in above video).
