PS: You should study how catcher defense is measured.

His team allowed no runs. That's as good a defensive effort as is humanly possible. Expected values don't mean crap if no runs score.

Catcher defense is measured in a highly imperfect way. It gives no credit for calling the game. Framing is based on average expectations of strike/ball for a location, which may very well mean nothing with a given umpire's zone on a given night.
