Wright, Greene Make Giants; Others Sent Down

The Giants roster picture just got a lot clearer, but some new questions have arisen in their place. As Felipe Alou has announced that Todd Greene and Jamey Wright have made the Opening Day roster, he didn't announce whether Wright would be the 5th starter or a reliever. He also made no hints as to which two Giants would be removed from the roster to make room for them. Meanwhile, Valdez, Hennessey and Ortmeier were all sent to the minors.

Positional Previews - Catcher

Okay, so to kick off our series of positional previews, perhaps catcher doesn't seem like the most interesting spot. Yea, we all know who's starting, but there remains an intriguing battle for the backup job. Plus, the aforementioned starter had a career offensive year. Can the Giants expect anything close to it in 2006?
