Molina versus Bryant
Not long ago, Molina made some derogatory comments about Bryant on social media site, Instagram. Bryant was in front of an audience on a talk show at the Cubs convention, entertaining a crowd. During his interview on the show, Bryant joked that ‘St. Louis is boring,’ which Molina took offense, although he was taking the comment out of context. Molina wrote on Instagram:
"All stars, elite players and leaders of their teams do not speak bad about any city. There should be respect and you should play and compete with respect… only stupid players and losers make comments like the ones made by Bryant and Dempster .."
So what would happen if these two went at it in a big game, who would win the bout? How could it even happen? Most big fights start with that spark…
This is how I picture it happening. Bryant comes up in the batting order for the Cubs, and Molina is catching. As Bryant makes his way to the plate, Molina says something under his breath to the effect of Bryant being a loser, or scared or not an ‘elite player.’ Bryant will say something back but will get in the batter’s box trying to concentrate (2019 – focus – hits). Molina, being the more senior and professional of the two brawlers, will call for Bryant to be hit by an inside pitch (typical) but the pitch will just miss him. Molina will laugh at Bryant and then Major League Brawl I begins! Let’s break down the stats.
