You cant be serious. You think Verlander is worth 25 million if they move him to closer? Would you rather have a 30 home run shortstop or a 30 home run 1st baseman?

I agree his value goes down. Also i just looked at Poseys numbers as a first basemen and they are insane(Only 200 at-bats though).

.355/.415/.571

Posey hit better than every single qualified first baseman in baseball last year. I don't think there is much of a problem with the ability of him to fit in as a first baseman. Plus, we are talking about 5 years down the line, at earliest.

I agree if he stays as a 950 OPS player...If he drops below 900 as a first basemen its not good value whereas even below 900 as a catcher is still great production...Just have to hope last year production can be sustained if he is ever moved to first.

Posey + Belt > Posey + Sanchez
