The Gas That Makes the Giants Go

by Michael X. Ferraro

These words fill pitchers’ hearts with woe:
“Now batting, Marco Scutaro.”

Handles all fastballs, high and low.
Small guy, big wheelhouse — Scutaro.

Way less hype than Robby Cano,
but this October stole the show.

The gas that makes the Giants go,
He’s like Cody Ross 2.0.

Take him out with a savage blow?
You’ll pay the price — not Scutaro.

    Only a bard like Ferraro
    Could capture all the ebb and flow
    The pathos, bathos, give and go,
    The up and down and dosey-doh,
    In such a sage and lyric flow
    (It ain’t so easy, don’t you know
    This stanza here just goes to show
    it’s proof enough, quid pro bono)
    about that crazy hazy bro-
    That baseball genius Scutaro.
