and i think that the more victor plays 1b, the more valuable he becomes. but that has nothing to do with position eligibility on your fantasy team, just less wear and tear on his body. also, keep in mind that we still have the last 2 months of the season to play here, which is the time when cathers are most fatigued and injury prone. i would not be suprised if mauer's avg dropped off a cliff in the next couple weeks. i still view vmart as the top catcher for next year, he simply has so much more power potential right now. maybe 3-4 years from now i'll be singing a different tune though, who knows.
bottom line, i just think there will always be someone else in my league who will take the top catchers far earlier than i'll be willing to. pitchers and catchers are just so unpredictable, other hitters are much easier to project and are generally safer.
The point differential between the 1st and 15th ranked positional players is also around 100 points +/-, but that is the whole point, the top ranked at these positions are going in the 1st and 2nd round of the draft. This is why one can draft Vmart early and enjoy the production from the C position while the rest of the fantasy league is getting relatively less production from their C.
And FYI because of Vmarts good average, high run production and lack of strikeouts (47), he ranks 13 amongst 1B's in my league, ahead of the likes of Helton, Delgado, Overbay, Fielder, Tracy, Youkilis, Swisher. So the dual eligibility will be welcomed by me, if I have to plug him in at 1B a time or two, it'll give me flexibility with choosing bench players for 1B and C.
