Some things you may or may not want to know about Marco Scutaro...

Marco Scutaro
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Marco Scutaro born October 30, 1975 in Yaracuy State, Venezuela to an Italian father and a Spanish mother) is a Major League Baseball second baseman who plays for the Toronto Blue Jays. Previously, Scutaro played with the New York Mets (2002-03) and the Oakland Athletics (2004-07). He bats and throws right-handed.
After spending seven seasons in the minors with the Indians and Brewers
systems, and two seasons with the Mets as a backup, Scutaro made the
most of his chance he was given when Oakland's starting second baseman Mark Ellis had a season-ending shoulder injury in the 2004 spring training. It didn't take long for him to get in sync with Rookie of the Year shortstop Bobby Crosby in the middle infield. Scutaro starts the double play well, and his strength is a strong arm that allows him to go deep into the hole for grounders.
For Oakland, Scutaro managed to get the hits that counted, or move
runners along, or whatever was required in each situation. In 2004 he
reached career highs in batting average (.273), RBI (43), runs (50), hits (124), doubles (32), at-bats (455) and games played (137). Although he strikes out more than he walks,
Scutaro becomes a good contact hitter when it's necessary to put the
ball in play. He hits to all fields, and is successful against both
left-handed and right-handed pitchers. He was of great value to the
Oakland bench due to his ability to play multiple positions, including second base, shortstop, third base, and left field.
Scutaro made a name for himself with the A's as a clutch hitter who
saved the A's many times during the 2006 season with his late game
heroics, including the clutch 3-run double late in game 3 of the 2006 ALDS that put the game on ice and sent the A's to the ALCS, where they lost in 4 games.
In a four-year career, Scutaro is a .256 hitter with 19 home runs
and 92 RBI in 330 games. While in the minors with the Triple-A
Indianapolis Indians in 2001, Scutaro was one of four players profiled
in the documentary film "A Player To Be Named Later".
Because of his Italian heritage, Scutaro was given the option of playing for either Italy or Venezuela in the 2006 World Baseball Classic. He chose to play for Venezuela as a utility infielder.
On November 18, 2007, Scutaro was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays for two minor league prospects. [1]

Trivia


  • On April 15, 2007 in the rubber game against the New York Yankees
    in Oakland, with two on, two out in the bottom of the 9th and the A's
    down 4-2, Scutaro, who previously was 1-for-20 for the season, hit a walk-off home run off closer Mariano Rivera on an 0-2 pitch. Ironically, April 15 was the day which MLB honored Jackie Robinson,
    whose number 42 was universally retired and which Rivera is the last
    active player to don. It was also the first home run Rivera allowed on
    an 0-2 pitch since July of 1997, when Marquis Grissom of the Cleveland Indians took him deep.


  • He is commonly called Super Marco. During games in Oakland, fans
    scream "MARCO!" and fans in nearby sections of the stadium respond
    "SCUTARO!" in reference to the game Marco Polo.


  • Another common nickname for him is Lil' Papi, after Big Papi (David Ortiz),
    since both players are known for coming through in the clutch. Since
    the 2004 season, the only player with more game-ending hits than
    Scutaro is Ortiz.


  • Marco and his wife, Marines, have two daughters, Maria Veronica (5/26/02) and Valerie (1/01/06).


  • On July 6, 2007 Scutaro tied the AL record for errors in a game by a third baseman with four against the Seattle Mariners.

Marco often starts many games even though he's supposed to be a super sub. He fills in quite often for the oft injured Bobby Crosby and Eric Chavez.
