BenFred: Cardinals need to keep Molina, but have him curtain the Yadi yapping

Sometime soon, the Cardinals and beloved cornerstone catcher Yadier Molina will attempt to find common ground on a contract extension.

They will discuss the amount of years Molina should receive, the performance-based incentives he could earn, the significance of his legacy and what, in terms of millions of dollars, will satisfy both sides.

There is one thing that will probably not come up, but should.


Molina doesn’t just lead the Cardinals in heart and hard work.

He’s becoming the all-time leader in one of those newfangled modern stats: headaches caused per Instagram post.
