Does anyone else think that Molina played to give westbrook a better chance?
#Cardinals GM Mozeliak acknowledges that the Molina Plan has been "deviated" from in the past week ...
"I think the plan we’ve deviated from, obviously," Mozeliak said, referencing the outline the team, its medical staff, and the player had discussed when Yadier Molina came off the disabled list. "I think with a player like him he’s obviously going to have some say in whether he can go or not. We welcome that type of feedback. The past few days have gone fine for him. From a medical standpoint, I don’t see any restrictions. I think the answer really is you have to have a lot of trust in that player. Not everybody gets the opportunity to weigh in like that. The ones you are allowing to have some say in that, you have to really have a lot of trust and believe that they are going to give you the right answer. We have had other players in the past who get to this level. Yadi is deserving of that. A player of his ilk you want to give every chance."
