    benito mightily carried the giants on his back down the stretch for the division title a few years back. but, um, his back is simply not as strong as it was then.

    i think that there is *a great unknown* when it comes to santiago's present-day abilities.

    bring back Benito

    I'd love to see Benito back to spell Matheny. I believe he would be better than what's behind Matheny so far. Haad can't hit at all & no one else has proven anything at the major league level. Benito probably can't start anymore at this stage of his career, but as recently as 2004 he was having a decent season with the Royals until the Phillies got upset about a couple of Matt Stairs HRs & threw inside at Benny, breaking his hand. They should at least invite him to Spring Training. I've heard nothing about Santiago retiring-if I've missed some decision on that front then this could be a moot point.

    here is the third in a series of weekly stories on mlb.com examining the giants, position by position.

    catching

    "Nobody works harder than [Matheny], that's for sure," said Schmidt. "Just the way he prepares for the game. His intensity level is above and beyond what everybody else's is. He really puts everything into it."
