Molina Rumors False, Catcher Saga Continues
According to Anthony McCarron of the Daily News, the New York Mets “shot down” a recent radio report that the Mets were nearing a deal with catcher Bengie Molina. A team official has completely killed the report that said a 2 year deal was close for the free agent catcher.
The Mets would very much like to sign Molina for a 1 year deal with a vesting option for another year, but the 35 year old Molina continues to hold out for a 3 year deal.
It seems like this Molina situation is becoming a big waste of time, especially when the Mets could be considering other options like Yorvit Torrealba who suddenly is very available due to the Colorado Rockies nearing a deal with Miguel Olivo.
I’m actually not sure if he would cost the Mets less money, but it seems like a good bet. If I were Molina I would simply take the Mets’ one year deal at this point, before the Mets actually come to their senses and switch their focus to someone like Torrealba. If the Mets were to pull back their offer to Molina, what other teams would pursue him?
