If they take 3 catchers: I would rank the bench options:
1. Carroll (Dozier starting)
2. Parmelee (Morneau DH and Doumit bench/OF)
If they don't necessarily take 3 catchers, I would rank them:
3. Parmelee (Morneau DH)
5. Burroughs (but his defense bothers me)
I don't see Benson making the team unless someone is injured.

Burroughs came into spring training with the reputation of being a pretty good fielder at 3B... can perceptions really change with a handful of spring training innings at the hot corner?

"the worst case scenario with only 2 catchers results in the forfeiture of the DH for the remainder of the current game."
And really, is letting the pitcher have a couple of at bats really all that much worse then Butera?

It would also make that game's moment a very special and exciting one. I never get excited when Butera is at the plate."You teach me baseball and I'll teach you relativity. No, we must not. You will learn about relativity faster than I learn baseball." Albert Einstein
