Yadier Molina Leaves Brother Jose a Present on Home Plate, Cracks Himself Up

Oh, Yadi!
Yadier Molina may have broken our hearts when his injured thumb put him on the DL for up to twelve weeks, but he quickly reminded St. Louis Cardinals fans why we love him with a cute little gag at the expense of his brother and Tampa Bay Rays catcher Jose Molina.
