Hard not to cheer for Scutaro

Former Boston Red Sox shortstop Marco Scutaro has done it all with the bat since he was traded by the Colorado Rockies to the San Francisco Giants on July 27.

Scutaro finished the regular season by hitting .362 with a .385 on-base percentage, .473 slugging percentage, .859 OPS, three homers, 44 RBIs, 16 doubles and 40 runs in 61 games.

Scutaro, the Giants second baseman this postseason, is hard not to root for. He was always a hard working player and team-orientated guy who was great in the Red Sox clubhouse.

Smitty on Baseball

Just because the Red Sox season is finished doesn’t mean I won’t stop blogging. Check out my blog for daily thoughts on the playoffs, the Red Sox offseason, occasional Q and As and the daily “Old Photo of the Day” entry.

This week, I will post Q and As with Texas starting pitchers Matt Harrison and Ryan Dempster.
