UPDATE: Bengie Molina deal is done

UPDATE: John Shea of the Chronicle says the deal is now done, so Bengie won’t have to pretend to still be a Giant today in Colorado.

3:30 P.M.: This news from Andrew Baggarly is fun:

This Bengie Molina
deal still not officially done. Molina probably will report to Coors
Field in a couple hours as a Giant — for no

Aw-kward!

It’s probably a holdup over how the money is going back to Texas or something. Or maybe the bankruptcy judge decided that rather than trade Chris Ray he should auctioned or something.  Certain future Rangers owner Chuck Greenberg assures me, however, that the deal is as good as done and should be wrapped up no later than the end of April.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
