Los Angeles Angels slugger Albert Pujols believes Yadier Molina belongs in the Hall of Fame, no matter what critics say.

"That's a joke. You kidding me? He's the greatest catcher of his time. It's not even close," the Angels first baseman told USA Today's Bob Nightengale. "Defensively, he might be the greatest of all time. Some of these people don't appreciate greatness, they just look at numbers on their computer."
