and you CANNOT compare catchers of different eras with any sense of fairness.
Of all the positions outside of Pitcher, Catchers have had different expectations/statistically variance depending on timeframe than any other position in MLB
Billy Sullivan was a top notch catcher in deadball because he probably threw out 70% of baserunners, yet CS was enormous back then due to double steals to scratch one run out. He also had a huge amount of assists and putouts for fielding bunts Yet Billy only hit .212
