The Flying Molinas and the World Series

Posted on: October 26, 2010 10:56 pm

SAN FRANCISCO -- The road to the World Series goes through the Molina brothers.

Texas catcher Bengie.

St. Louis catcher Yadier.

And Toronto catcher Jose.

One of the three has played on a World Series team in five of the past nine seasons: Bengie (Texas this year, the Angels in 2002), Jose (Yankees, 2009), and Yadier (Cardinals, 2004 and 2006).

"It's because there's so many of them," Rangers reliever Darren Oliver jokes. "They're all over the place."

It's sort of true.

Bengie, the current World Series Molina, said Tuesday that it is not a subject he and his brothers discuss.

"Not yet," Bengie says. "Once we're done with baseball, we're going to sit down with some pina coladas somewhere special and talk about what we've accomplished. But that's not now."
