BDD: Name That (Surprise) Molina

At Baseball Daily Digest, I discuss why I’m so surprised that Yadier Molina is hitting so well.

Before an 0-for-4 performance in Atlanta on Wednesday, Molina had a 12-game hitting streak, spanning two weeks, during which he had a slash line of .409/.480/.568, including four doubles and a home run. He’s even stolen a base! Add in that Molina is arguably the best defensive catcher in the game, and the St. Louis Cardinals have themselves a valuable asset — one not named Albert Pujols.
