X-rays on Yadier Molina’s hand injury come back “clean”

Yadier Molina and Mitchell Boggs got crossed up a pitch last night, with the reliever throwing a fastball when the catcher was expecting a slider.

The end result was Molina taking a mid-90s fastball off his hand, which caused the always tough catcher to leave the game, but according to manager Mike Matheny an X-ray taken immediately afterward came back “clean.”

Matheny told Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post Dispatch that Molina will probably be examined further, but the fact that the Cardinals don’t plan to add another catcher to the roster along with little-used backup Tony Cruz is a good sign for now.

    Glad none of this has affected his desire to fly like Superman.

    So, when is Boggs going to be suspended?

    Chase: You know Boggs wasn’t trying to go “old school baseball” on that ass. LOL!
    I am going to try to work “old school baseball” into every post for the next week. It shouldn’t be too annoying. Clarification: It shouldn’t be any more annoying than usual. I was happy to see Jared Weaver actually use it and pretty much state he likes it last night on Letterman.

      I need two things.
      1. More old school references.
      2. More cowbell.

        Will Ferrell was in Old School.

        He was also the lead singer of BOC in the Cowbell sketch.

        So what you need is a ton of Will Ferrell?

      1.) Yes—I choose to believe that those four (and counting) thumbs downs are doing so out of an irrational refusal to admit that it was funny.
      2.) You could probably fit an old school and a new school on that a$$.
