Thoughts on the Giants: Can Buster Posey Backup at Catcher and First Base?

With the news of Travis Ishikawa going down with a freak foot accident, I had to ask myself a question that came out of left field.

What if the Giants No. 1 prospect Buster Posey became the backup catcher as well as the backup first basemen for the Giants? 

Although Travis Ishikawa isn't on the DL, there is a possibility of having to do surgery on the torn ligaments, which would mean that he would be out for a significant amount of time.

Bruce Bochy has said that he wants Buster as a full-fledged catcher and nothing more. With the possibility of Ishikawa out with injury in the next couple of weeks, doesn't it make a little sense for Buster to take some ground balls at first base this season if he does in fact make the team out of Spring Training?
