Best news of the spring

Bengie Molina is cool with more time off.

Here's an idea: Bengie is benched at the ASB and Buster Posey is given the starting job (after learning how to "call a good game" from Steve Decker in Fresno).

If the Giants want to seriously compete for the playoffs, they have to stop relying on past-their-prime, injury-prone re-treads who have no "upside."

Check out Matthew Pouliot's 2010 projections of "catcher OPS." (Molina's lifetime OPS is .727, good for an OPS+ of 88. Do you think Buster can do that?)

Yo the sketch is pretty much done. However, I'm going to scan it since my camera just ain't doing it justice. I hope that you like it. (Oh and would you like me to email you the MC sketch or what?)

OK, expect it by Monday afternoon.

Molina is one of the best catchers in the game. Lincecum would probably not have won the Cy Young even once without Molina.
