Yadier Molina may have broken our hearts when his injured thumb put him on the DL for up to twelve weeks, but he quickly reminded St. Louis Cardinals fans why we love him with a cute little gag at the expense of his brother and Tampa Bay Rays catcher Jose Molina.

Molina, sporting a red cast on his injured arm, could barely keep his sunflower seeds in his mouth as he giggled adorably with infielder Daniel Descalso over the light-hearted prank.
So well played, Yadi. This is way more adorable than that time Terry Pendleton left a McDonald's cheeseburger on third base for Eric Gregg:
