• Jose Molina 2009

    Posted by on February 16th, 2009 · Comments (3)

    Along with Chad Moeller, who also played for the Yankees in 2008, Jose Molina is probably the worst hitting back-up catchers to play semi-regularly in the big leagues since 1973. However, Molina’s defensive ability (and the fact that he’s under contract for 2009) assure him a role as New York’s back-up catcher in 2009.

    In any event, at the end of the day, Jose Molina is just another member of the Modern Day Bad Yankees Back-up Catcher Club along with Joel Skinner, Juan Espino, Mark Salas, Wil Nieves, Kelly Stinnett, John Flaherty, Chris Widger, Todd Greene, Chris Turner, Barry Foote, Johnny Oates and Fran Healy…

      Sal’s Pals in Philly? Thos bleacher fans at the Bank that wore Sal’s Fu Manchu and cheered for him? Now that was cool…… Yeah, I liked Sal too, he was a nice guy and did a decent enough job.

      Look Molina can’t hit, but boy is he great behind the plate. Yeah, it would be great to have a Jorge JR, but the Yankees haven’t drafted a suitable heir apparent for Jorge …yet. Maybe next year, they can consider getting a premium catcher to complement Georgie if anything.
