Scutaro coming up big for NL West-champion Giants - Yahoo! Sports:
"SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Marco Scutaro is no castoff or misfit. Not even close.
It just so happens he is having a major impact as part of San Francisco's run into the playoffs - the 2012 version of Cody Ross, if you will. Scutaro does it all: reliable defense, timely hitting, mentoring of younger teammates.
The Giants plucked Ross off waivers in August two years ago and watched him capture MVP honors in the NL championship series and help lead them to that long-awaited first World Series title since moving West in 1958. He was one of those ''castoffs and misfits'' as manager Bruce Bochy referred to them."
