Tiered Catcher Ranks

Over the next few days, I'll be releasing my tiered positional ranks (with my 2014 projections included). The purpose of these ranks is to show readers where there are major talent drop-offs within each position. For catchers, there are five tiers and the top tier consists of two guys and one of them -- contrary to most rankings I've seen -- is not Yadier Molina.
