Yadier Molina has long been the face of the Cardinals franchise. He is a leader in the clubhouse and has earned the respect and admiration of his teammates. A few weeks ago, Yadi sustained a brutal injury when a foul tip hit him between the legs. The trauma was severe enough to necessitate emergency surgery and put the backstop out of commission for at least a month.
Of course, the next logical step is to play some practical jokes on the guy by putting his stuff in the broom closet. Yadi did not seem to mind.
Get well soon!
