The best and worst receptions, with glorious GIFs and graphs.

At the end of April, I brought back my weekly catcher framing series from 2013 in a new, monthly form (and came back for more after May). I mentioned this then, but as a refresher, here's where you can find catcher receiving stats at Baseball Prospectus:

Framing the Future

4

Harry Pavlidis

The best receiving catchers (and the best receiving teams) of the upcoming season.

One of the benefits of our recently released catching defense metrics is they’re essentially ready-to-project, thanks to the regression feature of the model (the "R" in RPM). RPM also gives us two ways to assign value to framing, one using context (the ball-strike count) and one using a flat value (recently adjusted* to ~.155 runs).

The best blockers and receivers, revealed.

[T]he expected runs produced from each plate appearance starting with a strike decreases by .029 runs and increases by .040 for every ball thrown on a first pitch. In other words, having as many of those 0-0 'striballs' called strikes can greatly impact the outcome of the game.

A three-way trade unites Jose Molina and Ryan Hanigan as a dreamy defensive duo.

The best and worst receivers of the week(s) and year, with end-of-season minor-league stats.

2013 League Leaders
Welcome back. We’re going to start things off a little differently this time. These are the top five framers of 2013, according to Max Marchi’s model, through the end of August (it takes time to run, so it’s updated monthly). Negative numbers are runs saved, and numbers inside parentheses are called pitches.

Jose Molina, -24.6 (5259)
Yadier Molina, -23.8 (7443)
Alex Avila, -22.6 (5637)
Derek Norris, -20.1 (4947)
Brian McCann, -18.5 (5473)

The best and worst receivers of the week (s) and season, with a cameo from Vin Scully and a closer look at Travis d'Arnaud.

Haven't done one of these in a while, but absence from framing makes the heart grow fonder. Time to play catch-up!

We'll start with Vin Scully, who just decided to return for season no. 65. If you don't follow me, you might've missed this, and we can't have that:
