Wecome back, Marco Scutaro

I'm sure the Giants front office has wondered about getting Jeff Kent to un-retire. And why is Ehire Adrianza still on this team?

Last year, Scutaro was a shadow of the 2012 Scutaro but the Giants have been so lousy for so long that it makes sense to give the guy a try, per John Shea of the SF Chron --

Scutaro was Crawford’s double-play partner on the 2012 championship team, showing up after his July 27 trade to be a utility guy and back up Ryan Theriot at second – yes, Ryan Theriot. As it turned out, Pablo Sandoval went on the DL and Scutaro played his first 10 games as a Giant at third, eventually taking over at second.
He hit .362 in 61 games, won MVP honors in the National League Championship Series and was a consummate hitter and teammate, which others fed off. Two years older with a stiffer back, Scutaro is nowhere near what he was. But he is a decent alternative for a team that has tried Brandon Hicks, Joaquin Arias, Ehire Adrianza and Joe Panik at second base.
