this is a very interesting article. i've seem jose molina and his bro y in action and they are the best. tek wasnt bad either. this saves about 2 runs per game. the real issue is on 1-1 counts. the difeerence between 1-2 and 2-1 is HUGE. we slam becks for loving tek but there may be truth there. those guys get respect by how they catch the ball, pop the ball makes on certain couonts and by not moving around back there, umpires love these guys. russell martin of the yanks is barely hitting this year but he's the SECOND best according to both the eye and statistical tests. the pitchers love throwing to him. going along with being a great pitcher's catcher and calling a great game also goes along with being a great pitch framer.
