From CSN Bay Area and Andrew Baggarly, a great read on how the Cards almost signed Marco Scutaro. Scutaro eventually re-signed with the Giants after victimizing the Cardinals in the NLCS. Even more interesting was the man who made the hardest recruiting pitch to Scutaro, none other than Matt Holliday, whose hard take-out slide on the Giants middle infielder was the source of much criticism last October.


Scutaro went 14-28 in the NLCS vs. the Cards, winning the series MVP award.
