Yadier Molina of the St. Louis Cardinals has plenty of free time on his hands now that his team is out of the playoffs -- and he might be spending some of that time in a courtroom.
According to a lawsuit filed in New York, Molina -- who is widely considered to be the best defensive catcher in baseball -- is being sued by Steiner Sports Marketing for allegedly taking $90,660 to do autograph events ... then never showing up to do them.
Steiner is seeking damages in excess of $175,000.
Sports fun fact: Yadier, along with his brothers Bengie and José, are the only trio of brothers to have each earned World Series rings.
