It’s significant, really significant. It’s sufficiently significantly significant that my jaw dropped when I read it. That’s five wins in 709.2 innings (or about 79 games). Color me skeptical. In an article from July, Molina ranked 11th overall and Marchi’s method credited him with 15 runs saved to that point. That means in a few weeks in July and the months of August and September Molina saved 35 runs by framing pitches. Compare the 50 runs figure to the totals contained in Marchi’s introductory article on Baseball Prospectus (which estimated that Molina had saved 62.8 runs *in the previous four years*) and the numbers just don’t look right. I guess it’s not impossible but I’d need to read a more detailed breakdown of the figures before I accept it at face value.
