Molinas tracking Molinas

By

I love “Inside Baseball” stories such as the one Tyler Kepner has featured on the Bats Blog this week. Jose Molina, one third of the Catching Molina Brothers, was sitting in the Detroit clubhouse when a clip of his brother Bengie’s hitting a triple came on screen. Jose started cheering, and Kepner asked him how he keeps track of his brothers during the season. Molina has BlackBerry alerts for his two brothers and records all of their games at home. Now that is family devotion.

      I, for one, went nuts at Old Timer’s Day when Jose hit his first HR of the season last year.

                Nah, he was one of the psychos (Jets fans) in the front

                (meant as a compliment, Jets fans are the best)

    That’s is a lot of baseball for Molina to watch, especially given that Yadier & Bengie don’t get many days off.

  • Joe R

    Now if only Bengie could teach him how to hit…Actually maybe not. Then we probably wouldnt have him as a backup cause hed be starting.

    • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime

      Yadier’s much better.

      • A.D.

        If you throw out Yadier’s first 3 seasons then yes, but career numbers the edge goes to Bengie.

      You just blew the minds of all the Cashman Haters.

      WHAT?!?!?!?!? BACKUPS WHO ARE GOOD AREN’T BACKUPS BECAUSE THEY GO AND GET STARTING JOBS?!?!?!?!??!

        It’s such a hilarious cognitive disconnect…the people who lambast Cashman for not having Mike Lowell on a 1-year deal to back up ARod are the same ones who, given Nady/Swish/Damon, want one of them traded for a reliever.

          I may have to go back in time and dust off the ol’ Cashman Hate Template®©™

      There better be a defibrillator on hand…

    • A.D.

      100yd dash would be funny enough, hell just having them run 90ft to 1B would be funny enough.

    • Klemy

      Time. Time wins in that race.
