    Nobody is comparing Trout to Bonds all-time (careers) but one could make the claim that Trout can be the Bonds of his era based on what he have seen. Just like I'm not saying Perez is comparable...

    A homer is a person who lacks objectivity and bias.

    1000 PA's is enough sample size to make "potential" claims. He's producing at a level far superior to most of the "top 5,"

    Obviously he...

    Salvador Perez = 0.90 WAR per 100 PA

    Pudge - 0.67 WAR per 100 PA

    Fisk - 0.69 WAR per 100 PA

    Bench - 0.865 WAR per 100 PA

    Carter - 0.775 WAR per 100 PA

    People saying Carlos Santana back a few years were very misguided. He was never a defensive ace. In fact you could make the argument he's one of the worst defensive catchers in the league.
  5. Unless some horrific injury happens that stops...

    Unless some horrific injury happens that stops him from being able to catch, Perez is going to have a place in the majors for a very, very long time.

    His attributes behind the plate are on par...

    Of course he's not there right now. He has a whole career ahead of him.

    Potential is there though. He's going to reach current Yadier status much earlier than Yadier did. Maybe as early as this...

    Top 5 catcher of all-time potential.

    Keep track of him.
  8. Now with Mauer moving to 1B, does his value to that team drop dramatically?

    :confused:

    Very glad and surprised that Sal Perez got the gold glove, he deserved it.

    What a great young catcher they have. He has a chance to be the best catcher of his era.

    What makes you think Scherzer is going to regress when he's probably just starting his prime?

    He was almost a 7WAR player, it would be safe to assume he still cracks 6 WAR next year if healthy.

    What's the alternative? Nobody is going to give up a top 10-15 prospect for one year of Sherzer before he's free to go wherever he wants.

    Assume if you're lucky you get a top 25 prospect.....and...

    You sign him because he's a huge part of the identity of the team.

    They will always contend with those three pitchers and always be a huge threat to beat anyone in the playoffs when you can roll...

    Max was almost a 7 WAR pitcher.

    Fangraphs WAR is complete bull for pitchers. Very flawed that doesn't stand up to logic.

    Lincecum had a 3.74 FIP which placed him at 61st in the league with starting pitchers of at least 100 IP, which by definition is a back end 2nd starter or the top of the class 3rd starter.

    His...

    Molina's presence behind the plate has long been a boon to Cardinals' pitchers -- since 2005, the staff's ERA is 3.91, and 3.76 in innings caught by Molina himself

    And since the 3.91 era is...

    Here's what I know I'm getting with Molina:

    A top 30ish offensive player.

    A guy who handles a pitching staff as well as anyone I've ever seen.

    A leader.

    The best defensive catcher in...
  19. Is there a more valuable player in baseball than Yadier Molina?

    The impact he has on every game is amazing on defense, he's in complete control.... and put that with a well above average bat....

    I'd take Yadier Molina the last two years over anyone in baseball...

    That's why I said compared to today. If we're talking about Pedro in 2000 it would be 66 percent ish more fire power as compared to when Bob pitched.

    He could end up having one of arguably top 10 seasons EVER (regular season and post season) if he continues to pitch like this to a world series ring.

    Say he pitches another 4 times, 7 innings...

    The league ERA for that year of Gibson was 2.99

    Much less offensive fire power as compared to today. 25ish percent less firepower.

    So add 25 percent to the 1.12 total and Gibson would project...

    That's why I don't think 2000 Pedro could maintain an ERA of sub 1.25 that he projects to (Maybe even sub 1.00 with park adjustments) he you place 2000 Pedro in the 2013 NL.

    It just doesn't seem...
