As St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina continues his record-setting pace in 2012, conversations are heating up about his place in the storied franchise’s history.

Molina is on pace to break some of his career best numbers even before the All-Star break.

Hitting his third home run of the week on Sunday afternoon against the Pittsburgh Pirates, he now stands just one short of the most he has ever hit in a season, 14 in 2011.

In truth, Molina is on pace to crush several of his own personal records this year.

His career high RBI total is 65 and he is well over half way there. As of July 1, he is on pace to drive in 88 runs. He also sits two shy of his best single-season stolen base total of nine.

If his growing offense continues to catch up with his stellar defense, he could secure his place among the game’s elite.
