Harrison v. Molina: Not Exactly What You Think

I’ve watched the play about a 100 times now — each time the pain rings out through my own body, more and more. I’ve often heard about mothers feeling their children’s’ pain — lovers experiencing each others’ physical ailments. This is what that must feel like. Watching Yadier Molina get crushed is something I will never be able to fully accept. But I’ve watched it...

The period marks an exciting time for fans of all clubs as contenders get a shot in the arm from up-and-comers while...

Josh Harrison blows up Yadier Molina at home plate, Molina holds on

Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina was absolutely crushed by Pirates base runner Josh Harrison on a close play at the plate Tuesday night. Harrison’s shoulder made solid contact with Molina’s head and sent his mask…and body…hurling. Was it dirty? Eh, that’s for you to decide. Miraculously, though, Molina was able to hold on to the ball for the out – though he certainly paid...

The Cincinnati Reds’ Case To Host the 2015 MLB All-Star Game

Great American Ballpark was constructed in the early 2000s to replace Cinergy Field. It was first used during the 2003 Major League Baseball season as the new home of the Cincinnati Reds. The new park has yet to host an All Star game in its ten seasons of existence, and the city has not held the Mid-Summer Classic since 1988 at Riverfront Stadium. So the park and the city are long...

Cardinals SS Furcal injures elbow against Nats

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals lost their third straight game -- and maybe their All-Star shortstop, too.

Furcal was asked whether he was concerned the injury could end his season. "Sort of...

Game 128: Cardinals 4 Pirates 3

If you really want to get down to brass tacks, this whole game turned on one play. After the Pirates took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the fourth inning, Yadier Molina lead off the fifth wiht a single.
