    Posey most likely Molina is the easier protective catcher however now not by a whole lot. Posey additionally has a cannon and is beautiful excellent at the back of the dish. And whoever said lincecum has Sanchez as a catcher for the reason that posey isn't just right defensively is unsuitable. It's given that posey and lincecum consider differently. Lincecum shakes off posey alllllll the time. No longer on account that posey sucks on security. Sanchez is virtually much worse than posey at the back of the plate. Offensively that is a no brainer. They both hit for usual however posey also has the energy Molina does not. And now not many men and women realize that posey is an awfully selfless player. With a person on 2nd he drives the ball to proper discipline or up the core a lot. To be able to get the fellow over as a minimum if its no longer a base hit and that hurts his traditional greater than anything but it surely helps the workforce

    Not only will Yadier Molina win the gold glove again at catcher this season, he's also got a chance at the silver slugger award as well. 9 hrs, 38 rbi, 30 RS, 7 sb, and a .319 avg compared to Posey's 9 hrs, 38 rbi, 29 RS, 1 sb and a .294 shows the two players are comparable offensively. Defensively it's not even close. Yadier Molina is clearly a better defensive catcher and not only won the gold glove for catchers from 2008-2011 but won the platinum glove in 2011 as the games best defensive player.

    Molina should clearly be the starter. He's probably having the best overall season for a catcher in Major League Baseball. 319 average, 9 HR, 38 RBI, a .371 OBP and defensively, he has committed no errors. Did I mention he has HALF the strikeouts that Posey does?

    Carlos Ruiz is better than both of them this year his ba is.348 with 9hrs 39 rbis .421 obp and only 205 ab's, Posey's is .295 with 10 hrs 40 rbis .358 obp and 234 ba's, molina is batting .318 with 10 hrs 39 242 ab's and .371 obp. And honestly who has made more of a difference to his team thus far this year.

    Molina is having a better year offensively, and is way better defensively, so Molina.
