Milwaukee Sentinel, March 22, 1912:
For his career, Stanage caught 41% of the baserunners attempting to steal against him. The league average was 44%. There’s also the matter of Stanage being an awful offensive player. Stanage put up a career line of .234/.284/.295, including a remarkable .193/.242/.233 season in 400 at-bats in 1914.
As far as I can tell, three players had a reasonable claim to the title “best catcher in baseball” in the Spring of 1912: Roger Bresnahan, Chief Meyers, and Ira Thomas. Bruce Petway was in his prime, too, but was never much of a hitter.
Sugden and Stanage, by the way, both played for the 1912 Tigers, though they never played together. Stanage was the everyday catcher, Sugden was a guy the Tigers pulled out of mothballs for the famous Allan Travers game.
