Yadier Molina suspended for five games for spittlepocalypse

Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina has been suspended for five games and fined an undisclosed amount for his little freakout on Tuesday night. I love the way the MLB press release puts it. It says he was suspended for “his inappropriate actions” which included:

… making contact with Umpire Rob Drake multiple times and spraying him with spittle twice while arguing, in the top of the 10th inning …

Molina was totally out of line, but it’s nice to see that Drake’s selling of the spittle thing worked.  You just don’t see guys selling other guys’ moves anymore. It’s a lost art. Solid work, jabroni.
