    Molina freak out....no suspension?

    Yadier Molina totally went off on umpire.

    Should he have been suspended for this?
    ESPN is reporting just a small fine. Wow.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    Really??! Wow, bumping the umpire should result in at least a one game suspension. Of course, we don't want to give too much crap to the Cardinals and have Tony cry again...

    I would have suspended him for 2 games. He deserved it.

    It looked like a strike. The guy has a problem. There is no need for that.

    Re: Molina freak out....no suspension?

    Wow, he needs to be suspended, he made contact with the umpire and "spit" on his face, not to mention the profanities. How can that not be a suspension?

    That being said, lmao at Tony LaRussa. That was funny and all sorts of b.s.

    Re: Molina freak out....no suspension?

    What a joke! Suspend him. That wasn't a bad call. It was close and could have gone either way (didnt watch the game so I can't judge the umps strike zone) But It looked good to me. Yadi take some anger management classes you firecracker!

    According to the ESPN article he didn't spit, he spittled. Whatever the hell that means.... haha!

    Re: Molina freak out....no suspension?

    I would have thought he would have been suspended 2 games but I guess not. Its not the worst freak out I have seen but he should be sat down. And the Ump over dramatized the "spit" incident.

    I agree, he was still wiping off the "spit" after Molina was in the dugout. Bunch of clowns.

    The whole thing is quite hysterical in slo-mo.

    My theory that anyone with a neck tat is a piece of **** remains unchallenged.
