Ryan Doumit is a Catcher in the NL

For the one millionth time.  Ryan Doumit's numbers are good offensive numbers for a catcher, but very average for a 1B.  By moving him to 1B  we would have an average 1B under contract occupying a premium hitting positionand average catchers.  This is not beneficial compared to having an above average offensive catcher and either Adam at 1B, taking a look at our younger guys at 1B or someone we acquire in a trade or eventually move far down the road (Pedro).  It is common knowledge that in the AL he'd DH, but we're not in the AL, so his bat has the most value at catcher.  It seems like in every third thread, someone proposes moving Doumit to catcher and then Vlad or someone else explains this.  It's incredibly redundant and I'm sure will be the new defacto question to ask now that Andy is hitting consistently and McCutchen has been called up.

 

...and because I love this pictue and still miss The Trouth.  RIP NATE
