The St. Louis Cardinals catcher will be spending some time riding the pine after his incident with umpire Rob Drake during the 10th inning of Tuesday’s night game in Milwaukee following his ejection. The below GIF from Mocksession shows Yadier bumping the umpire as well as spitting in his face. This suspension will not be a short one. St. Louis beat the Brewers 8-7 in the 11th inning.
Your call on if the spit was intentional. Molina had this to say after the game:
“I would never spit on a face of any man,” Molina said. “That’s not me. I was so sweaty. My face was so sweaty. I was standing, yelling at him. I would never spit on anybody’s face. I don’t know what it was. When I was inside, I saw the replay and he was [wiping his face]. In the moment, I don’t see anything. I didn’t spit on his face. I don’t do that.”
