For being literally the slowest man in baseball, he certainly is a demanding little guy. I don't know what he thinks he's worth, but I won't miss seeing him "run" the bases next year

Why sit out and make zero? If that guy sits out a year, his offers next offseason are only going to get smaller. He should have taken the Mets 3 year $18 million offer before they made a trade.

Utter stupidity.

If he plays and gets hurt, not only does he get close to nothing this year, but then forever. Not playing at least gives him a chance to cash in next year. Fat chance, though.

3 years, 18 million is PLENTY to live on. Is he really worth more than that...especially when the Mets are making the offer?

If no one offered him what he expects this year, why would sitting a year out all of a sudden increase his offers? All it will do is decrease his value. If he actually does this, he's about as stupid as they come.

He got greedy. The Mets were ready to give him his payday and he blew it. That may be the biggest mistake of his career. He'll get an offer for $1m or less next year to prove he still has it

We're Sox fans. We're smart enough not to believe negotiating blather, right? RIGHT???

I think he'll sign somewhere Real Soon Now.

Except he really has no offers according to most sources.

Idle threat. The only thing sitting out a year would do is decrease his value. I can't imagine him taking nothing as opposed to a 1 year deal like I-Rod did a few years ago.

Come on, does anyone really think he would sit out the whole year?

Molina is just trying to gain some leverage because right now he has none. No team seems to have much interest in matching his asking price and there is no reason for any interested team to jump to pay Molina.

He'll give in within a few weeks an accept a 1-year deal from the Padres, Blue Jays or any other of the other teams that could use a catcher like Molina.

He wont sit out. The guy did have a great year. He's still not as dumb as Culpepper asking for a new contract.

Never miss a season if you are able to play, because you never know how long your body will allow you to play. They say to themselves it's just one year and my body will come back rested, but one can never know that, and as they get older they realize they were wrong and would do anything to get that time back.

Some advise from ex-Bear Al Harris, not his exact words but pretty close.

think one thing Angels manager, Soscia called the games from the dugout. teams might not think he can call a good game. I'd say he blundered badly.

can't the yankees use this guy? he owned them in the ALDS and posada is falling apart. he's 34 and his AVG, OBP, HR, RBI, TB, BB, and R have all gone down, year to year, the last 3 years.

Piazza's agents have contacted the Yankees (not vice versa:o:). They could sign him to a deal to DH and be a 3rd catcher. Posada's 2007 option becomes guaranteed if he catches 81 games, so he's there at least two more years. They have no need for Molina.

Threatening a year off won't gain him anything at all. He's 31, slow as they get, and now the GM's know his agent is not very savvy. If anything, he just completely screwed himself out of millions.

Agreed. Complete knucklehead.
