Cubs star Kris Bryan started a whole thing this week when he trash-talked St. Louis during an on-stage conversation with fellow Cubbie Ryan Dempster.
“Who would want to play in St. Louis? Boring. So boring,” Bryant said when talking about rapper Nelly trying to get his baseball bud Bryce Harper to join the Cardinals. “I always get asked, ‘Where would you like to play? Where would you not like to play?’ St. Louis is on the list of places I don’t like to play. It is rough.”
Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina took exception the diss of his teams town on his Instagram, calling out both Bryant and Dempster.

All stars, elite players and leaders of their teams do not speak bad about any city. There should be respect and you should play and compete with respect… only stupid players and losers make comments like the ones made by bryant and dempster .. #ceroRespectforthisstupidplayers #QuevivaStlouis #LOVESTL
