Don't get me wrong I loved Molitor as a player. Might be his biggest fan. But if you are somehow saying that that glovework is needed to add to or make up for a players OPS+ total it just isn't the case.

"A ballplayer has to just go out and be mean. You can't play half-heartedly. If you do, there's someone right over your shoulder that'll take your job away. If you don't do your job, what they're paying you for, why should they pay you? You just can't put in eight hours, that's what a lot of people don't realize about athletes. Very few people realize the pressure." Dave Kingman
