Not Too Shabby: Bengie Molina To Get Ring No Matter Which Team Wins World Series
It’s a good gig if you can get it: because he played for the San Francisco Giants this season up until June 30th when was traded to the Texas Rangers for for relief pitcher Chris Ray and a player to be named later, which ended up being minor league pitcher Michael Main, catcher Bengie Molina will get a championship ring regardless of the outcome of the World Series, which begins Wednesday night. Via ESPN/AP:
“I don’t know how to explain it, but it’s going to be a very happy, weird feeling,” said Molina, the catcher who was traded from San Francisco to Texas this season. “Just weird because I played there for 3½ years, and to wear another color in that stadium.”
“It’s going to be a very happy World Series for Bengie Molina. I’m going to try to enjoy it as much as I can.”
Boy, that’s like having your cake and eating it too, or maybe it isn’t. To be honest, that saying has never made a lick of sense to me – what’s the point of having a cake if you can’t eat it, so how’s that so great? Unless it’s one of those amazing creations made by that Ace of Cakes guy, then I could see just having a cake would be pretty cool. Huh.
You know what? Forget that saying. Instead, how about Bengie Molina’s fortuitous situation is like eating White Castle and not getting wicked bad gas? Yeah, that’s better. Very odorous imagery, if I do say so myself.
