Those of us that do not rely on DISH or Sling to watch baseball and were able to view the game on Tuesday evening might have noticed something unusual... Something we have never seen before.
Tuesday marked the long-awaited return of Cardinals long-time backstop Yadier Molina. Molina had been on the Injured List with a thumb injury for several weeks. When he returned, however, something was different about him.
I had a lot of questions, the biggest being “What are thoooooooose?”***
This is not the first time a player has worn the short, tapered pants. The look is usually accessorized with tall socks or stirrups, though. It is very rare we see players rocking this look with short socks, in my experience.
The plot thickened the next evening when Yadi appeared to be wearing regular-length pants:
So... what is with the pants? I have some theories:
The pants shrunk in the wash
Yadi was given David Eckstein’s old pants by mistake
Yadi spilled grape juice on his other pants
Someone stole Yadi’s other pants as a joke
Yadi grew four inches taller while on his rehab assignment
Yadi lost a bet to Ozzie Smith
That is all I got. Let me know your theories!
