Vic's catching

I hate to say a bad word about Vic, as he is brilliant with the bat, but some serious work needs to be done with him behind the plate. And not just about the running game...I replayed Konerko's 1st inning shot from last night. Lee actually made an excellent pitch. But what I noticed was that Vic was positioned so far to the outside of the plate that a pitch which painted the outside corner was targeted to Vic's inside (left) knee (if you picture what I mean...normally that pitch would be backhanded, but he was lined up to catch it as if it was an inside pitch). I'm sorry, but if a catcher slides that far outside PRIOR to the pitch (bacause he can't do it while the pitch is on the way), he is essentially telling the batter (Konerko) where it's going to be thrown. I would think this puts the pitcher at a serious disadvantage, or at least takes away that (fraction of a) second of uncertainty on the batter's part.
I am certainly not the first to notice this. Why hasn't it been addressed?
