Marco Scutaro, singin’ in the rain

Oct 23, 2012, 10:32 AM EDT

Rain drenching the field during the final inning of Game 7 in San Francisco last night made for some weird celebrating from the Giants and their fans while also creating this cool, Andy Dufresne-like moment involving NLCS MVP Marco Scutaro:

    Cardinal tears taste so sweet.

    Scutaro for President.
    An MVP we can beleive in.

      I don’t think there is an election in Venezuela.

        Actually there was an election for President in Venezuela a few weeks ago.
        FC, I will leave the details to you.

    Is it really a good idea to drink rain that falls over one of the most polluted states?

    • APBA Guy - Oct 23, 2012 at 11:58 AM


      I know it is difficult for the simple of mind to grasp this, but California is what is known as a “big” state. That’s a technical term, meaning “large”. In air pollution terms, which rain would capture, San Francisco is nowhere near the top in city rankings. Los Angeles is #1, proudly, with San Bernadino (in LA County) # 2 in the US, both are, by a large margin, ahead of the # 3 city, and LA is way in front of San Bernadino.

      But LA is 450 miles away from SF, the same, roughly, as between DC and Boston.

      San Francisco is windy. That’s why air pollution doesn’t linger there, despite the population. It’s so windy that the America’s Cup yacht race is being held just off Pier 39 in San Francisco Bay. You may have read that one of the Oracle boats capsized in the Bay because of strong winds. Then again, reading comprehension is obviously not a strength for you.

      Now, as a simple person, you are probably asking yourself, what do strong winds have to do with Marco Scutaro and air pollution?

      As I explained above, the winds disperse the air pollution. Disperse is a big word, I know, and that can be a struggle for someone like you, but keep this in mind:

      San Francisco is not even in the top 25 cities in California for air pollution, let alone in the US.

      Try to keep up with reality.

        Wonderful reply APBA.
        One question: How cheesey or otherwise silly did you feel addressing such an eloquent post to someone named “Buckfutter.”

      • natstowngreg - Oct 23, 2012 at 2:05 PM

        Reality? On a baseball blog?

        Does not compute, does not compute,…

        APBA Guy –

        If you are going to be condescending at least get your facts correct – San Bernardino is NOT in LA County. It’s in… say it with me… San Bernardino County…

      • tfbuckfutter - Oct 23, 2012 at 3:40 PM

        Or note that 2012 is the first year SF has managed to get out of the Top 25 in the nation.

      • ryknow23 - Dec 5, 2012 at 2:23 PM

        APBA Guy and Buckfutter –

        It is true that San Francisco benefits greatly from strong winds that disperse the air pollution. However, this doesn’t mean that they are not polluters. They just pollute and someone else (San Joaquin Valley, Salinas Valley) gets the penalties for their pollution. If you have ever been in San Francisco on a hot summer day (over 90) with no wind, it looks a lot like the LA basin with the smog as you look out over the bay toward Oakland. APBA Guy….this is the reality. Buckfutter….I hope you can understand the terms I used. :^)

    I love it. He looks like a little kid, savoring the moment. A grown man getting paid to play a child’s game, catching raindrops in his mouth, about to play in the big show. It doesn’t get any better.

    • ajcardsfan - Oct 23, 2012 at 12:43 PM

      He deserved every sweet drop, he’s just wrapped up a dynamite outting in the NLCS. Congrats to him and the Giants, keep the trophy in the NL

    • eaststandsal - Nov 20, 2012 at 1:30 AM

      I loved it! You could almost feel his joy! Wonderful!!

  5. SOBEIT - Oct 23, 2012 at 11:46 AM

    Scutaro…great person, really good player and finally the rest of the country can see why he was the Blockbuster trade for the Giants.

  6. natstowngreg - Oct 23, 2012 at 12:35 PM

    Any reference to “The Shawshank Redemption” gets a big thumbs-up.

  7. goawaydog - Oct 23, 2012 at 12:47 PM

    pure joy in the moment.

  8. cardsfanandi - Oct 23, 2012 at 2:40 PM

    As a baseball fan, I absolutely love this. It looks like he really just loves that he’s playing baseball right here. Its a beautiful thing. The Giants proved to be a force this week, and, as much as I really hate that they stomped the Cards like they did, it was pretty incredible to watch. Congrats Scutaro and good luck in the Series guys!

    There’s a bunch of nerds in this blog post. I’m outtey!

    BTW. I like to stimulate my brain as much as my loins, but damn!
