How many 23 year olds could go 20/40? Vmart each year, is catching less and less. He plays a lot of 1B, mixing in DH. In some leagues, he will lose C eligibilty soon.
You said it yourself, COULD, not WILL.
And VMart may be catching less and less, but he's still the Sawx starting C.
For the first time since he won Boston's starting catching position in 1999, Varitek spends his winter knowing he is preparing to be the backup. Victor Martinez, one of the best offensive catchers in the game, will get the bulk of the time behind the plate.

Don't see him losing that eligibility this year.
