Giants' Bengie Molina Offically Traded To Rangers; Door Opened For Buster Posey

The previously rumored traded between the Giants and Rangers is now official: Catcher Bengie Molina has been sent to Texas in exchange for relief pitcher Chris Ray and a player to be named later.

Shipping Molina out of San Fran means that highly-touted catching prospect Buster Posey is now freed up to become the Giants everyday starter. SB Nation’s McCovey Chronicles is equal parts excited that this move finally happened, and shocked that the inept GM/head coach combo of the Giants actually made it happen.

Molina’s sagging numbers this season:
