Rank the following catchers Mauer, Martinez, Lecroy,Phillips

How would you rank the following catchers in a typical point styly scoring league (total bases + RBI + Run scored + Walks + 2x Stolen bases). My main concern is playing time. I rank them as follows:

Jason Phillips - safiest pick most playing time adequate numbers

Victor Martinez - Should get plenty of PT with major league experience and very good upside in improved numbers.

Matt LeCroy- Probably the best numbers batting 4th however, the Twins have a wealth of talent that might take time away.

Joe Mauer - probably the upside but 1st year and a lot to learn handling the pitching staff and taking a beating behind the plate.

I perfer having a 1B/DH for obvious reasons but am willing to take a risk on a catcher that may breakout such as Javy Lopez did last year.

Other options are:
ALOMAR JR. SANDY
BAKO PAUL
BARD JOSH
BARRETT MICHAEL
CASTRO RAMON
DAVIS BEN
DIAZ EINAR
ESTRADA JOHNNY
FORDYCE BROOK
GIL GERONIMO
GREENE TODD
HALL TOBY
HAMMOCK ROBBY
HUNDLEY TODD
INGE BRANDON

I'll go out on a limb and put Victor Martinez first. I think you're right in the assessment that Martinez (should also play some 1st n DH) and Phillips (C and 1B) will get the most AB. Maur is basically unchallenged too but has no real experience yet so I'll put him third. Despite the best power in the quartet I have LeCroy last simply do to available ABs. That said, all 4 would be very closely bunched on my cheatsheet.
