UPDATE: Bengie Molina deal is done

Jul 1, 2010, 4:25 PM EDT

UPDATE: John Shea of the Chronicle says the deal is now done, so Bengie won’t have to pretend to still be a Giant today in Colorado.

3:30 P.M.: This news from Andrew Baggarly is fun:

This Bengie Molina
deal still not officially done. Molina probably will report to Coors
Field in a couple hours as a Giant — for no


It’s probably a holdup over how the money is going back to Texas or something. Or maybe the bankruptcy judge decided that rather than trade Chris Ray he should auctioned or something.  Certain future Rangers owner Chuck Greenberg assures me, however, that the deal is as good as done and should be wrapped up no later than the end of April.

    How many times did you have to say “awkward” out loud like a teenage girl before you figured out where to put the hyphen?

    Like, 5 times. And the fact that you knew I did that has me laughing my ass off.

    We seem to be similarly afflicted (have you found a suitable combo of meds?) because it took me 3 times to make sure you were correct. I’ll defer to your experience and judgment, although I’m more than willing to hear any arguments from the post-K-hyphenation crowd. I’m nothing if not open-minded.
