Sounds can be misleading

MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at Pittsburgh PiratesWhen news spread that Yadier Molina, the heart and soul of the Cardinals, would miss eight-to-twelve weeks with a torn thumb ligament, two very distinct sounds could be heard.

The first was Brazilian football fan-level sobs from under the Arch, and the other was the thrilled glee coming from the state of Wisconsin.

Yadi was just voted to start the All-Star Game next week at Target Field, his sixth overall trip, and had a .287 / .341 / .409 slashline to go along with seven homers and 30 steaks while he’d cut down 49% of base-runners foolish enough to try and steal off of him, a full 23% better than the league average.

Molina has won each of the past six Gold Gloves for National League catchers and finished in the top five for NL MVP balloting each of the past two seasons, but any thoughts Brewers faithful may have that the two-game lead their club currently holds over St. Louis will morph into an easy Central division title, I would offer a few words of caution.

Wait for it, because sounds can be misleading.

Some may say Molina’s injury will sink St. Louis, but it may not be as simple as it sounds. Tony Cruz may not be the answer, but the Redbirds have a tendency to find a way. And for any who doubt that concept, you’d do well to recall such sentiments were spoken when Adam Wainwright went down for the 2011 season after the Crew had acquired Zack Greinke and Shaun Marcum earlier that winter.

Milwaukee reached the National League Championship Series that fall, but I think we all remember how that turned out.
