Catching Molina Bros.


Becoming a professional baseball player is not an easy thing. Only an extremely small percentage of men throughout the world can claim “MLB player” as their job. Even more rare is having brothers make it to the bigs (Burton will be covering this later in the week). Yet, today’s feature is on a trio of brothers- The Catching Molina Bros. Bengie, Jose, and Yadier have all held gainful employment donning the tools of ignorance at the MLB level. The Molina’s are known for being stocky (each weighing around 225 lb), slow-of-foot (257 ground into double plays), and being solid defensively. Momma Molina must be so proud.

Bengie- he’s the oldest of the Molina brothers at 34. He’s also the best paid, with career earnings of $22,310,000 through 2008. He won Gold Gloves for his work behind the plate in 2002 and 2003. He’s won a World Series as a member of the 2002 Anaheim Angels. He’s played for the Angels, Toronto Blue Jays, and San Francisco Giants over 12 MLB seasons. Career line: 1141 gm, 392 r, 1125 h, 186 dbl, 126 hr, 622 rbi, .278/.310/.419.

Jose- the middle Molina, is also the least known of the three. He’s struggled at the plate more than his brothers, leaving him mostly to backup duties. Jose has been in the majors for 10 seasons playing for the New York Yankees, Los Angeles Angels, and Chicago Cubs. Was also a member of the 2002 World Series winning Angels with his brother Bengie. Career line: 518 gm, 141 r, 323 h, 74 dbl, 20 hr, 131 rbi, .238/.278/.340.

Yadier- arguably the best of the Molina’s at the age of 26 as become an offensive force as well as a Gold Glover (2008). He’s caught 48% of would be base stealers. Also a World Series winner, as he did so with the 2006 St. Louis Cardinals, who he’s played his entire 6 MLB seasons. Career line: 557 gm, 155 r, 487 h, 84 dbl, 32 hr, 224 rbi, .265/.320/.366.

I still get goosebumps every time I listen to that song. Pennywise is one of the best punk bands ever...legendary!

Pennywise rocks, as does Ms. Molina's magic muff.

are the molina's really brothers? they dont look alike! well, bengie and yadier have some resemblance, but jose doesnt look at all like his brothers.

seeing the 3 molina bros. side by side reminded me of a joke told to a friend at church. at my church, there are also 3 brothers, neither of whom look alike. anyways my friend asked their dad as a joke if those 3 brothers were really his kids. as a joke, the dad told my friend "i dont know, ask my wife". unfortunately, the wife just happened to hear that comment at that exact moment, and she got really mad, despite all of this being a joke.

My father used to tell me I wasn't his.

I'm 2 years late on this, but Pennywise blows for the most part, and this is coming from someone who lives in Hermosa Beach, where they're from, and has met the guys in the band.

GM-Carson said...

If you're a fan of punk rock, there's no way you think Pennywise "blows".

Anonymous said...

If you are actually a fan of punk-rock you wouldn't be telling anyone who they have to like... "if you don't like Pennywise, you're not punk." is the most un-punk thing you can say, idiot. get a clue, poser.

GM-Carson said...

I'm not a punk. Never said I was. I love punk rock music, but I myself am just a regular dude. No fuck the establishment in me. So, I'm not a poser, because I enver even pretended to be. Maybe you're just stupid and can't actually comprehend what you read.

The middle picture is wrong. That's Gustavo Molina, not a brother.

Beer-a-Thon said...

Nope, that's Jose.
