Bengie Molina threatens to sit out the season

Unhappy with the contract offers that have come his way, free agent catcher Bengie Molina threatens to sit out the 2006 season:

Molina told the Yuma (Ariz.) Sun over the weekend that he will sit out the upcoming season if he doesn't receive the salary he is seeking, which is believed to be in the $6-million range.

"I think I have done enough to deserve something," Molina told the paper on Saturday, while attending an alumni game at Arizona Western Community College. "If I don't get that type of deal, I think I'm willing to sit out and see what happens next year. I hope it doesn't come to that."

A 31 year old catcher sitting out the season in the hopes that he can get a better contract next year...yeah, good luck with that, Bengie.
