Brett provided last night's recap of Alex Cobb's stellar night at Busch Stadium, and also predicted the future a few days back: @brett_or_brent @d_russ beeelieve— James Edward Krueger (@jamesEkrueger) July 24, 2014 While in St. Louis, the self-proclaimed "best fans in baseball" tried to woo David Price by buying him some drinks and offering him a suite at the Cardinals game. Cool move. But apparently everyone in the 314 was feeling generous, as Yadier Molina left a...

Breaking News: Yadier Molina tore a thumb ligament, will require surgery.

Yadier Molina tore a ligament in his thumb sliding into third base last night. Expect surgery and at least two months on the shelf for the All-World catcher.

This ligament stabilizes the MCP joint at the base of the thumb, and is commonly torn when the digit is stretched too far as an outstretched hand catches the impact of falling (or sliding). Surgery will be required to fix the ligament, after which the prognosis will be good. Two MLB stars have suffered this injury this...

How worried should we be about Yadier Molina's thumb?

It might be nothing, but I'm nonetheless worried. Last night’s St. Louis Cardinals victory was marred by Yadier Molina injuring his hand while sliding.

Injuries always worry me, and players seemingly hurt after a slide are one of the most concern-inducing for me. The in-game announcement was that Molina suffered a sprained right thumb on the slide. This did nothing to assuage my worries. A...
