Kris Bryant, while a guest of Ryan Dempster at CubsCon on Friday night, made a joke about St. Louis being “boring” and, apparently, St. Louis Cardinal Yadier Molina didn’t like it very much.

He sent a scathing reply via the most adult way possible, complete with name-calling and poor grammar on Instagram. Friday night at the Cubs Convention, Kris Bryant (yea, that same guy lady Cubs’ fans swoon over who has Adidas and Express deals and is happily married to his high school sweetheart) appeared on Ryan Dempster‘s pseudo-late-night show.  The show is somewhat of a farce where Host and former Cub Ryan Dempster attempts to get players to open up and tell stories and more personal anecdotes that give fans an “inside look” at the way players tick.

During the session, while talking about a concert he recently attended in Las Vegas where he met Nelly (the native St. Louis rapper, who is known for songs about grammar and getting hot),  Bryant offered up the comment that St. Louis was “boring” and that no one really wants to go there or play there.  Bryant’s comments were echoed by Dempster, who quipped, “I wouldn’t even entertain going there in Free Agency.”

From there, Bryant’s comment made its way to one of the Cubs’ most loathsome enemies, Yadier Molina, and Molina was none too happy with the comment.  In fact, Molina went so far as to call Bryant a stupid player and a loser, despite the fact Molina initially took umbrage to a lack of respect from Bryant.

I guess it’s one of those “do as I say, not as I do” things, right Yadi?  I guess we can chalk this one up to a guy who is super respectful to opponents and umpires taking the moral high ground by calling another player a stupid loser.  When they go low, let’s just go lower!  Or just throw some extra pine tar on it!
