Yadier Molina takes issue with Mike Matheny over quote about fatigue

There appears to be something of a rift between the St. Louis Cardinals’ manager and their franchise cornerstone.

On Thursday, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny strongly implied that he felt catcher Yadier Molina is dealing with a bit of fatigue from watching him run the bases, with backup catcher Carson Kelly getting a slightly larger role instead.

Molina clearly took umbrage with that assessment, posting Matheny’s quote on Instagram and calling it “misinforming.”

Molina is a proud guy who has chafed at questions in the past. He’s also a gamer who wants to play every single day. The fact that he chose to respond this way would seem to indicate that he’s particularly annoyed by this, though.
