WHICH CATCHER IS HARDEST TO STEAL ON?
Yadier Molina, Cardinals 58%
Gerald Laird, Tigers 9%
Joe Mauer, Twins 9%
Ivan Rodriguez, Nationals 9%
Jose Molina, Blue Jays 2%
The respect shown Yadier Molina is warranted. This season the St. Louis backstop has gunned down 47% of would-be thieves—highest among catchers who had played at least 68 games and virtually identical with his career percentage, which leads active receivers.... At 38, Rodriguez (active leader in arrested steals, with 637) was nailing a dandy 38%.... The third Molina brother, Bengie, got six votes (2%).
