Here is the opening to my column about Marco Scaturo a day after he got blitzed:

ST. LOUIS — Marco Scutaro is a media star. Bring on the paparazzi and put in a call to Wolf Blitzer.

Scutaro is famous because Matt Holliday blasted him Monday night when Holliday broke up a double play and in the process almost broke up Scutaro. It was a lion taking down a prawn. Scutaro got revenge when he busted open the game with a fourth-inning single that cleared the bases, the third run scoring after Holliday booted the sharply hit ball.

All of that makes Scutaro a media star until the Giants and Cards play the next game, and someone or something else takes center stage.

    If it helps… lets go Giants ! Obviously the guy, Holliday is a A H what he did.. enough about what a pro he is. Yes I am a Giants fan and whatever it takes to get the troops going use it. No AL team will be as tough as St. Louis so beating them will be the ride home.

    Picking up Scutero was better than all those high priced stars the Dogers got! Way to go Brian Sabean!

    It’s David vs. Goliath! Great coverage, and yes I can imagine the full deadpan, maybe with a little Clint Eastwood thrown in. The Giants have the motivation they need and the image of being the little guy that takes on the big bully. Good Stuff.
