molina is an awesome catcher. I think he is clearly the best defensively. that guy has a cannon.
I think what is crucial is that he catches in front of the throwing side, so that the momentum of the ball moves the glove/ball to the throwing shoulder very fast. move the glove back to the throwing hand. if the glove stays forward and you move the throwing hand forward to take it out it will be too slow.

I think walks are overrated unless you can run. If you get a walk and put the pitcher in a stretch, that helps, but the guy who walks and cant run, most of the time hes clogging up the bases for somebody who can run. Dusty Baker.
