Yadier Molina Held Onto This Ball Like "A Man," According To Suddenly Unpopular MLB Employee

Normally, this would be about Josh Harrison absolutely destroying Yadier Molina at the plate during tonight's Pirates-Cardinals game. But, well, the person running MLB's Twitter feed is just so goddamn impressed with Molina's skill at holding onto a ball, in a play that forced the catcher to leave the game as a precaution, it seemed like a perfect time to alienate all of the female fans that happen to comprise the feed's 2.4 million followers. To wit:


As one female tipster put it, "Well, it prompted quite a reaction: Making fun of a player injury and pissing off women all in fewer than 140 characters. Well done." That's some efficient alienation, MLB.
