In a light-hearted moment at Cubs Convention, Kris Bryant was joking with Ryan Dempster about St. Louis, and he offered his perspective on the city.
“Who would want to play in St. Louis? Boring. So boring,” Bryant said when talking about Nelly trying to get Bryce Harper to join the Cardinals. “I always get asked, ‘Where would you like to play? Where would you not like to play?’ St. Louis is on the list of places I don’t like to play. It is rough.”
They’re having fun. It’s silly. You’re supposed to rag on the rival’s city.
But Yadi Molina was not having any of it. He is pissed. He might sit on Kris Bryant:

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 .. #ceroRespectforthisstupidplayers #QuevivaStlouis #LOVESTL

Man, fire up that rivalry. We have been talking about how improved the Cardinals figure to be in 2019 – they might even compete for a playoff spot for the first time in years – and with that, the rivalry with the Cubs figures to heat back up. And I’d say Yadi just did his part. My word.
