ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - One of the best rivalries in sports is heating up with a little offseason feud. St. Louis Cardinals players John Brebbia and Yadier Molina had their adopted city's back after Chicago Cubs infielder Kris Bryant was trashing St. Louis on a social media talk show. 

Bryant joined "Friday Night with Ryan Dempster," a late-night style show hosted by the former Cubs pitcher. He was asked about going to a Nelly concert in Las Vegas, the same concert where the St. Louis-born rapper made his pitch to get Bryce harper to sign with St. Louis.

"Who would want to play in St. Louis? So boring. It's so boring," Bryant said. "I always get asked like, 'Where do you like to play? Where do you not like to play?' St. Louis is on the list where I don't like to play."

Those comments started making the rounds with Cardinals fans and they made their way to Molina, who wrote his resonse on Instagram. He posted photos of Bryant and Dempster with this caption: "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."

Brebbia was asked about Bryant's comments during his Cardinals Caravan tour. He reportedly said: "Cry me a river, loser" in response to Bryant. But Brebbia has since said the comment was more in jest than trying to attack Bryant. 

On the field, Brebbia has had Bryant's number as the Cubs slugger is 0 for 4 with one strikeout in his career against Brebbia.

The first Cubs/Cards series is the first weekend in May, in Chicago. It's shaping up to be a fun one.
