Bengie Molina gives tips to Neftali Feliz
By Bryan Dolgin
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Catcher Bengie Molina is in Arlington to receive his 2010 American League championship ring. He was my guest on Rangers Baseball Tonight, which precedes the game on the Texas Rangers ESPN Radio Network. In addition to reflecting on the success of last year’s team, we talked about closer Neftali Feliz.
Just before we recorded the interview in the Rangers clubhouse, Feliz briefly visited with Molina.
“I just told him straight up, hey look you’ve got to mix up all your pitches. You can’t just go out there and throw fastballs all day,” said Molina. “You have to go out there with no fear of losing a game, no fear of messing up on a changeup.”
You can hear more from Molina as he talks about more about Feliz, the 2010 AL Champs, what he is doing now and his plans for the future.
