On this date in Giants history—Jan. 19
On this date in Giants history…
2010: Free agent catcher Bengie Molina (pictured) re-signs for one year with the Giants in what is considered a surprise move, first because top catching prospect Buster Posey seems poised to play regularly for San Francisco, and also because the Mets had been expected to bring in Molina, 35, to be their starting catcher this season.
2011: The Giants sign 36-year-old free agent pitcher Jeff Suppan to a minor league contract and invite him to spring training. He gets cut on Mar. 29, two days before the season opens.
