St. Louis Cardinals teammates Yadier Molina and Gerald Laird reportedly got into a fight when the team arrived in Florida late last night. Cards GM John Mozeliak confirmed the two had a “disagreement” which is likely P.R. speak to cover up the incident.
Craig Mish of Sirius/XM Fantasy Sports Radio reported that the players had a fight Wednesday night that “had to be broken up by team.” Mish adds that the fight was “ugly.” He writes “I was also told Laird called Molina a “cheater” with what context I’m uncertain.”
If the two indeed fought, it wouldn’t be much of a surprise. Laird is the same dimwit who instigated this fight earlier in the season with Cincinnati. He also got arrested for brawling alongside his brother at a Suns-Celtics game in 2009.
As for Yadier Molina, well we already know what he’s capable of. Did we mention that Laird will be catching for St. Louis while Yadier serves his suspension? I’m sure that had something to do with the fight.
