{What happened with the Mets is very simple. People think I turned down big money for nothing. It didn't happen that way. They offered me something and two days later we went back to them wanting to start negotiations. They said, 'We're dealing with [Carlos] Delgado.' Then two days later they were dealing with Billy Wagner. Then they said call us on the weekend. We called [GM Omar Minaya] on the weekend and he was in the Dominican Republic. When he came back, he came back with the Paul Lo Duca trade [from Florida]. We never really had a chance to talk about anything. I don't think people know this. That's what really happened." -- Molina, on reports that he turned down a three-year, $18 million offer from the Mets } Bengi sounds like he lost his prom date < |
