BUT BENGIE IS LOMBARDIESQUE:

Outfielder's socks in a twist over poll's missing feet (Dwight Perry, 8/22/06, The Seattle Times)

Devil Rays outfielder Rocco Baldelli wasn't happy to hear that ex-teammate Toby Hall, now with the Dodgers, didn't even rate the top 10 in an SI players' survey to determine baseball's slowest-footed players. Blue Jays catcher Benjie Molina figuratively ran away with the honor, garnering a whopping 56 percent of the vote. "I'm not going to say for sure that Toby was the slowest," Baldelli told the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times, "but for him not to be included on the list at all leads me to question the validity of the entire poll. He earned the right to be on that list."

Compared to Gus Triandos, Benjie Molina is Bob Hayes.

By the way, I can't remember who "won" the famous footrace between Frank Howard and Harmon Killibrew they had in spring training one year.
