Don't trust a Molina

It turns out, not only did St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina personally sabotage my chance to win Tim's NL-only fantasy baseball league last season, he's kind of a prick:
During the celebration of the Cardinals' World Series victory, rookie pitcher Adam Wainwright bargained with catcher Yadier Molina for a title memento.

Wainwright believed they had a deal.

Molina, however, likes the baseball he caught for the final out of the Cardinals' 10th championship right where it is. Even as he arrives at spring training, the baseball remains at his home office in Puerto Rico, displayed with the other spoils of a young baseball career and nestled with photos from the title run. ...

"He told me, 'You deserve it, you deserve it,'" Wainwright said. "But he told me to wait. He was there with his brother (Giants catcher Bengie Molina), and it's hard to argue with two of them."

Molina said Monday he remembers talking to Wainwright.

He remembers the deal.

Will he follow through? "I don't think so," he said.
