And if I had a baseball how valuable would his be?
Circumstances dictate the value. Why can't you understand this?
I have a Molina. You have two Poseys. How valuable is your Posey to me?
You get the no **** award. Just like if you and your friends had a baseball, you wouldn't need that kid's balls.
In this case, the circumstance is that there are 30 teams and only a couple catchers as good as Posey. So his value is high, even if you aren't willing to pay the price because you already have Molina.
But...again...this is off base. Trade value and production value aren't the same thing. Production value is all that matters in the MVP discussion.
