Sandoval at C?

I haven't seen any discussion about Bochy's quotes regarding Sandoval playing some C when he comes back but I don't read through the game threads.

Here is what he said: "I think he'd be fine behind the plate, too. Don't think we haven't discussed that. It's not something we've ruled out."

Personally I had given up on the notion of Sandoval catching again but I do think it could be an interesting idea.  I would rather not see him thrown back there this year though.  I do not want to see the team put him in a situation he is not fully prepared for because that could lead to another injury.  I would be interested in seeing if he could prepare over the winter and get some games in during the spring, taking maybe 33% of the games next year though.  Maybe use Posey and Sandoval to essentially split the C and 3B positions which would allow them both to play almost a full 162.

What are your thoughts?  Do you think Bochy's quote is just a smoke screen to show teams that the Giants have other options and are not desperate to make a trade?  Do you think Sandoval could actually see some legitimate time back there this year?   Would you want to use Sandoval as a C to allow a better hitter than Whiteside/Stewart more AB's at 3B?
