Benito Santiago is an interesting case. 20 year career (including 2 seasons with the Jays), 217 home runs, 920 RBI and a .263/.307/.415 line. He was Rookie of the Year in 1987, was on 5 All-Star teams, won 3 Gold Gloves and 4 Silver Sluggers. He is also 10th all time in games caught at 1917.
There are only 16 catchers in the Hall of Fame. Only 6 of them have more home runs than Benito, only 6 with more hits and 7 with more RBI. I'm not sure how many of them were better defensively.
