Molina heads home

Yadier Molina is traveling back to St. Louis to receive an MRI exam on his troublesome right knee.
Molina has been dealing with soreness in his knee since late August, when he suffered an injury in a game against the Nationals. He sat out two games immediately after the injury, but has played more often than not in the days since. He sat out Sunday’s game at home, then played Monday and Tuesday before the persistent pain led the club to send him home to be checked out.
Molina has consistently downplayed the seriousness of the issue, but it has lasted long enough to be of some concern.
“We’ve been watching it closely,” manager Tony La Russa said. “For him to agree to get it checked, there’s more soreness in it.”

Smart move Yadi. The grind of catching and having to watch this late season debacle has got to be brutal. Thanks for sticking up for your team when Phillips ran his mouth about them. Too bad many of your teammates are proving him to be correct in his evaluation of the team.

Yadi take the rest of the year off (everyone else is). We need you back at 100% in 2011.

I’m starting to worry that they won’t end up with a 0.500 season. They need 4 more wins in 11 games (a 0.364 winning %age and in their last 30 games they are playing 0.333 baseball). Furthermore, the only team in the last 11 games they have much a chance of beating is Colorado (because they can’t beat a weak team to save their lives and they play well against contenders). It is REALLY FRUSTRATING when the team has in Wainwright, Carpenter, and Garcia, if not the best then one of the top 3 number 1-2-3 guys in the rotation, AND in Pujols arguably the best player in baseball AND with Yadi one of the best catchers in baseball not to mention Matt Holiday and the fans are wondering whether they’ll end up with 0.500 season. Talk about underachieving.

Yadi do me a solid and take Tony with you..PLEASE !!!!!!! If you happen to run into a guy nicknamed “the white rat” pick him up and bring him back !!
