Marco Scutaro was named the NLCS MVP.
In late July, Marco Scutaro was playing for the lowly Colorado Rockies. Now, almost three months later, he's playing for a World Series title fresh off winning the NLCS MVP award.
Scutaro is what you would call an MLB journeyman. Called up to the majors by the Mets at the age of 26, Scutaro spent two years there, four in Oakland, two in Toronto, two in Boston and a half season in Colorado.
While being durable throughout his career, Scutaro had the best season of his career this year, batting .348 with seven home runs and 74 RBI.
In the playoffs, he struggled in the NLDS against Cincinnati, but really turned it on in the NLCS. There, he batted .500 with 14 hits and four RBI. Every time the Giants needed a big hit, he was there to provide it.
If Scutaro does win the World Series MVP, it will mark the second year in a row that a player has won both an LCS MVP and World Series MVP.
