Watch out, everybody!
Yadier Molina‘s got wheels!
Last night, the St. Louis Cardinals long-time backstop did something that he rarely does in a game.
He actually managed to steal second base.
And Cardinals fans were loving every minute of it.
The throw to second may have helped him out a little bit, but Molina actually pulled it off, to everyone’s surprise.
As he stood up, a huge smile lit up his face, as he knew that the fans in the stands were loving it.
He was loving it too.
The man is slow, but sometimes the unthinkable can happen, and it happened last night.

Go Yadi Go!
The Cardinals like to make sure everybody knows one thing.
Don’t run on Yadi.
However, that rule doesn’t apply to Yadi running on another catcher.
He can absolutely swipe a base when you least expect it.
Watching him run the bases is both fun and hilarious.
You may not see it, but Molina’s got some burner wheels!
In all seriousness though, he clearly is not a fast runner, but he is a good baserunner, and a smart one too.
He doesn’t take a chance like that unless a golden opportunity is right in front of him, which last night it was.
But who doesn’t love to see a moment where one of the slowest runners in all of baseball steals a base?
This is something that is so seldom that you have to celebrate every time you see it.
Molina can certainly attest to that when it comes to stealing bases.
Cardinal fans love to see it, and so do we.
Once again, everybody had better look out!
Yadi’s got wheels!
