Breaking down the unlikelihood of Yadier Molina's bases-clearing, go-ahead triple against David Robertson

Last night, at 333 West 35th Street in Chicago, Illinois, Yadier Molina and the St. Louis Cardinals were down to their last strike with David Robertson, the White Sox closer, on the mound. Of course, it was only the eighth inning, but considering Robertson is one of the very best relievers in the game, it was evident that the Cardinals' most likely chance at tying (or dare I say it, take the lead) rested in the hands and bat of their seven-time All-Star catcher. Molina worked the count to two balls and two strikes, and what happened on the fifth pitch of the at bat was probably option...

Yadier Molina has embraced Operation Full Heel - A Hunt and Peck

And so should we The 2015 All Star Game featured some of the sport's best and most exciting players. With all the talent around, however, the biggest hullabaloo, in the St. Louis area, at least, was made over something that did not happen during the field of play. See for yourself: The gif is silent, but you still can hear the booing. Even an old friend got in on the fun: And it wasn't just Yadier Molina that bore the full force of #OperationFullHeel. The other five players representing the Cardinals were also recipients of Cincinnati's vocal disdain as well, including...

BorckStar Steals Base, Scores In All-Star Debut 9

(AP Photo)Brock Holt made it into the All-Star game last night as a pinch-runner in the seventh inning. Before you could say "Lou Brock", he pulled off a delayed steal and beat the throw of gun-slinging Yadier Molina. Not a bad start. He then scored on an RBI double by Oriole Manny Machado. His lone at-bat was more of a challenge—facing the triple-digit offerings of Aroldis Chapman (AKA The Cuban Missle). The velocity of the five pitches he saw (99, 101, 100, 101, 101) were a little too much for him and he struck out. But, all in all, it was a good performance in a 6-3 American League...

Padres fall to Cardinals 2-1 despite strong showings by Despaigne and Gyorko

Jedd Gyorko, who single-handedly (single-battedly?) propelled the Padres to victory on Friday, kept up his hot hitting on Saturday. Unfortunately his three hits were to no avail as the Friars fell 2-1 to the Cardinals. Yangervis Solarte provided San Diego's only run of the game with a fourth-inning home run as the offense failed repeatedly with runners in scoring position, wasting a solid road start by Odrisamer Despaigne. The Padres left two runners on base in the second inning, then Melvin Upton, Jr took himself off the bases in the third by testing Yadier Molina's arm. After Solarte went...
