So: The St. Louis Cardinals' star catcher, Yadier Molina, is already delivering on his big five-year contract extension—he's hitting .301 with a truly startling .504 slugging percentage—and Tuesday he hit a walk-off single to sneak the Cardinals past the Hated Chicago Cubs by a score of 7-6. How could his afternoon get any better? Well, he could infuriate Cubs fans by trading his usual haircut for a broad, distinctly un-faux mohawk. Early returns on the Yadier Molina mohawk Twittersphere:
Yadier Molina has a mohawk now? I didn't know he could get any douchier...— Joe West (@sjwest86) May 15, 2012
In this Cubs fan's defense, anybody with a visible neck tattoo is kind of asking for it. (Anyone with an invisible neck tattoo probably wears a lot of turtlenecks, which, depending on your opinion of Steve Jobs, might mean he's also asking for it.)
