I think it was when he was trying to pick off a runner on third (don't remember who it was) and the throw was to the foul-side of the bag. Mabry couldn't get a glove on it because of where the ball was in relation to the runner so it skipped past him inot LF and the run scored. I don't think Rolen could have done much more with it, so it was clearly on Molina from what I saw/remember.
Something else I noticed last night too was that he's trying to get kinda "cute" at times and pick balls cleanly (so he can test runners I presume) instead of just smothering them. I remember there was a WP a little outside that he could have easily blocked but he tried to pick it and it went to the backstop and the runners advanced. I know it's getting nit-picky but I hope he doesn't keep doing that and possibly costing the Cards runs in the future.
I haven't been able to catch many games lately, so those I've seen may be exceptions. Anyone else noticed this?
