Direct from Molina: "This is probably my last year in baseball."
— http://bengiemolina.mlblogs.com/archives/2010/05/appreciating_it_all.html Other bits: "I am not expecting any clubs to sign me in the off-season - if only the Mets and Giants were interested last year, when I was coming off five straight good years, I can't expect I'll have any interest after this season, no matter how well I do." But if you want your mind blown...read Bengie quoting the stats: "So that takes the pressure off to produce big numbers because, as I have found out, numbers don't seem to make a difference in the marketplace. The Giants signed other guys to beef up the offense, which means the responsibility isn't squarely on my shoulders anymore. Therefore I'm not pressing as much. This has translated into being more patient at the plate. I'm swinging at first pitches only 11.8% of time this season, compared to 39.4% in 2009 and 31.1% over my career. "
