I actually think it undervalues the position of 1B, myself. First basemen touch the ball the most other than the pitcher and catcher. The ability to save errors from bad throws is undervalued as well. I've seen it first had all those years having Pujols save horrible throws from Skip Schumaker from going into the stands.
