“Respect the ranks, newbie!”That’s e sentially what Cardinals catcherYadier Molina said in an Instagram post directed at Cubs catcherWillson Contreras, who proclaimed over the weekend he is going to be the best catcher in MLB, not Molina, notBuster Posey.I used to watch a lot of those guys, but now I’m watching myself because I know that I’m going to be better than them. That’s my plan. That’s my [mindset Jackie Robinson Jersey ],”Contreras said at theCubs Convention.Naturally this irked Molina, one of baseball’s best players over the past decade.Respeten los rangos NOVATOS!! aqui con los q si han probao que son los duros!! @salvadorp13 @busterposey A post shared by Yadier Molina (@yadier_marciano_molina) on Jan 17, 2018 at 9:21am PST Contreras, 25, has justtwo seasons of big-league experience.

I know I am lacking many years of experience and only time will tell.”In my mind I aim to be the best and like I mentioned during the interview, I have enormous Corey Seager Jersey respect for these players, I honor and learn so much very time I play against Molina and Posey. I simply used them as examples of achievement in my profe sional career.”To use the best players as a model or standard and want to exceed them, I don’t believe is any disrespect simply motivation and Inspiration.Have a great night God ble s you all Willson Contreras (@WContreras40) January 18, 2018The two can hash it out in person when the Cardinals and Cubs meet for the first time this upcoming season on April 16.
