If I'm the Jays, I go with the considerably cheaper and better option in Zaun next year. Even if it's debatable on the offfensive side (and I don't believe it is, because Zaun had both a better season this year, and over his career), Zaun is a far better catcher defensively at this point, and his edge in the running game (in the fact that he doesn't clog up the bases whenever he gets on base) puts him up over the edge.
Just give Zaun a few more ABs, and give Phillips the rest of them. It's certainly the cheaper option, and the production you'd get from Molina agaisnt lefties doesn't go down by that much. They should have done it this year.
Zaun has had a better career than Molina how? OBP%??? HAHAHAAHAHAA
Nick Johnson had a better OBP% than Ryan Howard, I guess Nick's the man because of it.
Offensively, Zaun has been better than Molina over his career. Look at OPS. And it's not like Molina's had considerably more ABs over his career either.
And as for the Nick Johnson reference, well I think I already commented on how off-base that was in the other thread.
No, you said Zaun was better this year and in his career because of his superior OBP% to Molina's. Molina has had the better career and had the better season. Well, obviously OBP% isn't everything since Howard could be the NL MVP this year and for sure had a better season than Johnson. Molina has played 3 less years and already has better numbers than Zaun has in pretty much every category except OBP%. But Nick Johnson knows that he's was better than Ryan Howard this year because of that stat.
