    Oh yeah..pull the baseball version of Race Card.

    All Time Catcher gold gloves

    #1. Ivan Rodriguez - 13
    #2. Johnny Bench -10
    #3. Yadi Molina - 9

    So the baseball voters are racist against a Central Amercian catcher in favor of a White catcher....but the #1 Catcher is another Central American. Makes total sense now

    Imagine being so insecure.

    You’re a fan of a team who follows the social media of another player on A fake rival

    Then you post the link to his social media posts

    Because you’re a fanboy of a catcher who played 40 years ago. Lolol

    Isn't Johnny at least part Native American?

    Bench is reportedly one-eight Choctaw. I guess Molina is anti-Native American.

    While I do think that Molina deserves to be, and will be, a HOF, I don’t think he will be a first ballot HOF.

    His career WAR of 40+ simply isn to good enough for him to get in on his first try. Plus I don’t think he’s particularly well liked around the league, which might well mean some will make him wait.

    It's more about how the award has become metric based, and he doesn't have the metrics. That said, if they make a metric for guiding a pitcher through a game competitively and keeping them focused, Yadi would win every time. It's the central flaw with metric philosophy: if a skill cannot be quantified, it does not exist.

    Neck tattoos must not be factored into the metrics very heavily either. What a shame.

    Over the last two seasons his OPS vs. the Reds is around .650, so he must have sold them.
