Cleveland has already said they'll probably be playing him some at first base this year. That shows what kind of confidence they have in him. And he'll get a lot more at bats because he'll be able to take a rest from the rugged catcher position and still play first.

"The Akron Beacon Journal says while Victor Martinez will start at catcher, he also might see some playing time at 1B. 'Victor is coming in as the No. 1 guy,' Eric Wedge said. 'It's his job to lose. A realistic scenario would be that he catches 105-115 games.'
Analysis: Martinez is expected to have a breakthrough year, and playing 1B would only increase his versatility in Fantasy leagues."
I'm not making this stuff up. It's a good possibility, and I think his upside is much greater than Hall's.
