It's over the last ten years. It has nothing to do with this season at all.

True...

Albert Pujols is one of the greatest right handed hitters of all time....

That doesn't help me sleep better at night.

Kenny's list must have little to do with actual catching skills and more to do with hitting. Come on, man, Gary Sanchez??? Actually, Sanchez didnt hit last year, either.

 

Gary Sanchez is horrific behind the plate.  I have no idea how he made such a list.

Has there ever been such a fall off, as with Pujols?    Cabrera is likely to join him, though.

Depends how old you think he is. I personally believe he is 41-42. If that’s the case, he fell off in his late thirties due to lower body injuries. Wouldn’t be too surprising a fall if I am correct.
