It didn’t seem like a good sign that John Mozeliak was going to address the media at 2:45 p.m. Central Time, and then the rumors about Yadier Molina began flying around Twitter.
Unfortunately, Twitter rumors were correct for once.
Yadier Molina has a torn ligament in his right thumb and will have surgery tomorrow. He’ll be out eight to 12 weeks.
Some random thoughts …
Can the Cardinals PLEASE not ever have a Star Wars night again? To refresh your memory, here’s what happened last year and yesterday, of course, was this year’s special night.
Nothing at all against Tony Cruz, but my biggest fear (and that of probably every one of you also) has now happened.
To those tweeting about how the Cardinals now need to sign A.J. Pierzynski, please stop — and here’s why.
Finally, I’m blaming the Brewers for this. That video about Jonathan Lucroy being more deserving of Yadi starting the All-Star Game was a curse — since Lucroy will now, in all likelihood, be the National League starter behind the plate.
