ST. LOUIS -- For all the excitement over the breakout seasons from several young Cardinals in 2017, it's an old-timer who made the list of finalists for a National League Gold Glove Award in 2017: catcher Yadier Molina.
Molina is seeking his ninth Gold Glove. He had won eight in a row from 2008-15 before missing out last year. The other NL finalists at catcher are San Francisco's Buster Posey and Cincinnati's Tucker Barnhart.
Molina, 35, also is a four-time Platinum Glove winner, denoting the top fielder across all positions.
