Mets, Royals Added To List Of Teams Giving Bengie Molina A Ring This Year

The World Series kicks off tonight in San Francisco but Bengie Molina has already won.  It has been widely reported that the Rangers catcher, who was traded from San Francisco to the Texas, has already been told he will receive a full World Series share and a ring for helping the Giants get to the playoffs.  In other words, regardless of who wins, Bengie gets a ring.

Once word got around Major League Baseball, teams started calling Molina with other offers.  The Blue Jays reportedly offered Molina a ring if he wears a Toronto hat during BP.  Molina politely declined.

The Mets were much less demanding.  Simply wanting to be involved in the postseason, the Mets have already sent Molina a 4th place ring, hoping that the catcher will wear it during interviews.  Upon hearing this, the KC Royals did the same.

We caught up with Molina outside of a Bay Area "Cash 4 Gold" location on Wednesday morning.  "It's a little crazy.", said Molina. "But it's nice to be appreciated.  I will cherish these rings and treat them with the respect they deserve."

Molina then went inside and sold them for 64 dollars and an iced-out "Romex" watch.
