ARLINGTON, TX — Guess who’s back in town? Yeah, the Rangers have kept their wheeling and dealing going, and made another big trade yesterday evening, bringing Mike Napoli back to Texas from Boston!

Needless to say, fans are excited to see one of their favorite players back with the Rangers!

You could already hear fans giving the classic “NA-PO-LI! NA-PO-LI!” chant outside the Ballpark.

Napoli only played two seasons with in a Rangers uni but was a huge part in the team’s 2011 World Series run, and quickly became a fan favorite!

Hey, with Nap back and Hamilton acquired earlier this year, it’s starting to look a lot more like that 2011 ball club!

Most importantly, it just might give the team that extra push they need this year! Coming into Saturday the club is just 5 and a half games out of first in the West and 3 and a half games out of the last Wild Card spot.

The team isn’t wasting any time! Napoli was already making his first start today up in Seattle! Hey, the season is reaching the home stretch, and the Rangers are looking to make it and exciting one!
