    Molina was a great pitch framer back in his day. Had MLB teams recognized the value of pitch framing a decade earlier, Molina would have been a starting catcher throughout his career instead of a longtime backup. More to the point, had Molina (with his 64 wRC+) been able to hit, he might warrant a Hall of Fame discussion. That said, whatever his (remarkable) skills, he's got no case.

    FYI, Molina has been the catching instructor for the Angels' farm system since his retirement as a player and is now working with their big league catchers, too.
