Yadier Molina turns one of the more perfect double plays you'll see

Getting a double play started as a catcher is a difficult task. The ball has to be nubbed just right in front of the plate, the catcher has to react with zero hesitation and his throw needs to be strong and right on target. It's hard to do. 
Unless you're eight-time Gold Glove winner Yadier Molina. Then it's just another baseball game.

Molina helped turn this 2-6-3 double play against the D-backs on Wednesday night. Watching the flip of the mask, one-handed grab and superb throw -- all in one fluid motion -- is like hearing a poet recite their best work or watching a composer compose their greatest masterpiece. YOU deserve some crackers for that one, Yadier.
