2. Yadier Molina

2014 Numbers: 7 HR’s, 28 RBI, .280 AVG, .331 OBP, .407 SLG, 50% CS, .997 FPCT

Molina’s first-half numbers this year are a rather sharp drop-off from what they’ve been in the past couple seasons, but the voting fans apparently either have not figured that out or just don’t care, as he’s on pace to be voted in as the NL’s starting catcher this year. His fielding statistics are very good, but his offensive numbers at this point are not on par with Milwaukee’s Jonathan Lucroy, San Francisco’s Buster Posey, Atlanta’s Evan Gattis or even Cincinnati’s Devin Mesoraco, who missed a good chunk of time at the beginning of the year. If Lucroy can somehow overtake Molina in the voting (which doesn’t seem likely), there may be complaints from other fan bases if Molina still ends up on the roster.
