The All-Star Break offers baseball players the opportunity to relax sore bodies, relax stressed heads and … begin Instagram feuds.
You're on the hook, Kris Bryant has found a new target for his social media torch, and while the Cardinals probably do not like seeing the face of the organization as they use explosive and middle finger emojis on The Gram Molina is right. He makes it possible in the Yadier Molina way. That's zero (worry).
In the most fueled social media slogan of Molina since Molina bred Bryant for calling St. Louis "boring" Former manager Mike Matheny, Molina, hastened to defend his captive colleague and Los Angeles Angel Jonathan Lucroy after Lucroy was shot in a Sunday play by Jake Marisnick of the Houston Astros.
And if you've missed it, here's what Molina on his 762,000 Instagram has posted followers. Well, the PG version.
"(Expletive) !!!" Molina has booked on his official account. "MLB must be active in this (expletive) piece! (Expletive)! Pray for Lucroy! Slide slide slide (expletives) !!! (expletives) u if you think that's alright .. (expletives) u !! !! "
And it does not end there.
The comment section of Molina's post is of course full of people who respond. In these comments are a few Astros. Molina defends catcher. The Astros defend Marisnick.
"This is number 1 bs," writes Houston pitcher Lance McCullers at Molina. It was a coincidental collision, it was unfortunate that it happened, and we all hope that Lucroy is fine, no one wants anyone hurt and time, we are a brotherhood, you are here long enough to to know it. "
to the family Lucroy or to Chirino (Astros Catcher Robinson Chirinos). I want to know his opinion. Ask him! "
Alex Bregman, Justin Verlander, Carlos Correa and other Astros make the case for their team mate Molina fires on everyone Cleveland catcher Roberto Perez checks in and agrees with Molina It's a who's who of baseball in the comment section, with far more competitiveness than you'll find in the All-Star game, it feels like you're watching a bank clearance game in which every player has a thought bubble over their heads.
If so If another Cardinals player were to be believed, the organization would have asked for a language change in the meantime, but it is not another player, it's nine-time All-Star and nine-time Gold Glove winner YMolina, who plays whenever he wants. He says what he wants, the cardinals have been advocating this attitude for years, and those who are offended by Molina's bad words will be upset, and most will focus on the curse words and miss the message.
Molina will always protect his teammates, and catchers count as his teammates. It is a brotherhood. That's why the former catcher and now Angels manager Brad Ausmus and Molina pay each other a subtle salute before the games between the Angels and Cardinals. Just as he hurried to the defense of John Brebbia (and St. Louis) when Kris Bryant made nasty blows, Molina feels compelled to be the outspoken voice of captors who are fed up with seeing such collisions, the aftermath of it immediately Feeling sick years later, and tired of rule changes that turn games like this into an automatic stop, but stop punishing the base runner beyond the singles.
College football players marked for targeting miss the second half of this game or the first half of the next. Baseball players aiming for catchers are called and take their next shot off, even if the catcher like Lucroy is sent to the hospital to be examined for a reported concussion and a possible nose drop.
It does not look like a clean piece, "said Angel's manager Ausmus to USA Today," I do not know what actually happened, it looked like Marisnick took a step to the left and got in with a raised arm The call was right, Major League Baseball should probably look at it and honestly consider a type of suspension. "
Ausmus, like Molina, will defend the catchers, it's their code, and it It's worth noting that Molina's quote was delivered with It's not lacking in firecrackers – it's about more than the quote from Lucroy's own manager.
Molina, 36 years old and a veteran of 16 MLB, knows his voice He is proud to lead the conversation to the protection of catchers will change his delivery now.
