In a recent post by chuckb, a certain (and my favorite) facet of Yadier Molina's game sparked some conversation and much love. Of course, I am talking about Yadi's famous pick-off plays. So I decided to do a little digging on MLB.com to find the videos. They really didn't start documenting them well until recently, so that explains the spottiness. Still, a healthy and enjoyable collection.
