Molina Rejects Mets Offer, Signs For Less With Giants
After rejecting a $5 million dollar offer with incentives from the Mets earlier today, Bengie Molina decided to to sign a one-year deal with the San Francisco Giants for a reported $4.5 million.
Jon Heyman believes the news shows just how much Molina wanted nothing to do with the Mets. Especially, when the Mets deal was also reported to include a vesting option for a second year.
So with Molina now off the table, the attention has now shifted to Yorvit Torrealba who according to Andrew Marchand of ESPN Radio, is waiting to hear from Omar to see where they stand as far as an offer goes.
Another option could be that the Mets just stand pat. However, considering the uncertainty surrounding Carlos Beltran, I am shocked that they won’t even consider Rod Barajas who has significantly more power.
Still, the chance that we might see an Omir Santos and Henry Blanco platoon behind the plate this season, remains a strong possibility. Hopefully, they don’t do something stupid and rush Josh Thole before his time.
