Molina Hopes For Extension With Giants

According to Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News, Giants catcher Bengie Molina hopes to sit down with team officials to discuss a contract extension.  Molina is set to earn $6MM in '09 before reaching free agency.  The 34 year-old is hitting .287/.316/.429 in 522 plate appearances, mainly as the Giants' cleanup hitter.

Molina knows the Giants can afford to let him go, given the presence of Pablo Sandoval and Buster Posey.  If the Giants decide to use Sandoval at third base, perhaps they'll add one more year to Molina's contract.
