Benjie in the Orange & Black?

The SF Chron's Henry Schulman is reporting that the Giants may sign Benjie Molina, which means two things -- 1. Matheny's career is over and 2. The very likeable Eliezer Alfonzo is only going to be a backup, given his marginal performance last year -- a Feliz-like 9 walks in 286 ABs. Schulman's doesn't mention that Benjie's by far the best hitter of the Molina Bros. even though Yadier's HR in Game 7 of the NLCS was probably the single most clutch hit of the year.

This has the making of another huge mistake by the Giants if they give him a multi-year contract. Although he is only 31 or 32, his defensive skills have eroded noticeably the last 2 seasons.

The Giants probably want him because he plays like he's 35 or 36.
