If other teams coming up against the San Francisco Giants really want an even playing fieldthey should keep on top of the Giants. Sad to say, even after Melky Cabrera’s drug bust -don’t be surprised to see him back for the playoffs- and Guilermo Mota’s reinstatement after his second illegal – there is reason to believe there could be at least another ortwo more tainted Giants on the team.

Simply consider the following:

Infielder Marcos Scutaro is 37 years old.He was batting .271 when the Giants acquired him mid season. He is hitting .341 since coming toh the Giants in a tough hitters’ ballpark especially as compared to Colorado. The Giants got Scutaro for next to nothing, a sixth rated minor league prospect, Charlie Culberson and cash. Scuator has been with three teams in three years.

Sounds alot like Melky Cabrera, right? But Melky was already had one big year before coming to the Giants Add the fact that Scuator is from Venezuela, one of the main countries, along with the domincan. where convicted ballplayers originate from- supposedly, the quest to do well in the majors and to bring glory and money back to the home country is the motivator. And, Scutaro is coming to a team with known users and a number of Venezuleans and Dominican players. One could say Scutaro has had only 200 ad bats with the Giants but that is nearly half a season worth and a seventy point batting rise over that long a period is no mere streak of luck. Blancoo has had similar streaks early in the season that would be questioned but that wasn’t evena 70 point rise over his past average.

Thih San Francisco. ere are others ont he team like Arias and pagan who are having significantly above average seasons again in a tough ballpark. One can now look back at Andre Torrez, who had an otherworldly season the year the Giants won the Seies.

Then there’s the long list of tainted players from Bonds’S gang to Jose Guillen, another convicted user during the Wrold Series year. You gotta wonder. Giant’s fans in liberal San Francisco welcome the entertainment at any cost. ‘Give the player a second and third chance’ they say… ‘ That’s baseball today ih San Francisco. I wouldn’t put it past GM Brian Sabean and the SF Giants and their ‘win at any cost’ attitude to find more players on testosterone or other substances. One cockroach on a team leads to two and four, etc… Kirk Gibson is the only other team member to far make an issue of the Giants and how a player like Cabrera has already had an unfair advantage, singlehandedly giving the Giants at least 5-10 victories this season. So they lose him; they just bring in another likely user, Scutaro, who is literally filling Cabrera’s numbers. Whether it’s turning up the PA louder than any other stadium to excite the fans or overstating it’s sellouts the Giants must be brought to the table of true justice or they will continue making a mockery of the game. Even if Sabean and the Giants aren’t techinically guilty of anything they are taking advantage of a weak baseball structure, thanks to Selig and Co, going after suspected or know users who other teams are more respectful to turn away. No other team comes close to spitting in the face of the National Pasttime.
