Luke Scott takes a swing at Red Sox fans

Luke Scott

By C. Trent Rosecrans


Luke Scott has never been one to shy away from his opinions, and Wednesday the former Oriole and current Ray took aim with his tongue, not his 7 1/2-foot spear.

Scott. who was injured and didn't play in the Orioles' victory over the Red Sox on the final day of the season, said his teammates were pulling for the Rays to take the final playoff spot from the Red Sox.

The reason, Scott's not a fan of the Red Sox fans. From MLB.com's Bill Chastain:
"Just their arrogance," Scott said. "The fans come in and they take over the city. They're ruthless. They're vulgar. They cause trouble. They talk about your family. Swear at you. Who likes that? When people do that, it just gives you more incentive to beat them. Then when things like [the last game of last season] happen, you celebrate even more. You go to St. Louis -- classiest fans in the game. You do well, there's no vulgarity. You know what? You don't wish them bad."
He added that the team's celebration went up a notch moments after the Orioles won when the Rays' Evan Longoria homered to knock the Red Sox out of the playoffs.
"Everybody's giving high-fives, then all of a sudden [Longoria] homers," Scott said. "Everybody's in the clubhouse and it's like, Bam! And we're like, 'Go home Boston! Pack your bags. See you next year.'"
Then on his way home, Scott even taunted Boston fans.
"It was like someone shot their dog. I rolled down the window and I'm like, 'Ah, hah, sucks doesn't it, when someone laughs or makes fun of you when things aren't going your way.'"
I'm guessing when the Rays and Red Sox play this year, the Sox fans may ratchet up their "ruthless" and "vulgar" ways.

I don't know about the Red Sox fans, I do know about this A-hole.  I guess this is a classic 'it takes one to know one'.

Nice to see that some players observe what fans see in their home stadiums. Scott is dead accurate with this comment. Jays fans call them 'Massholes.' They come to Canada and pretend that they own the stadium openly mocking the Jays with no regard. In Toronto it is five times worse based on them taking advantage of Canadian politeness. I have never had anything against the Red Sox as a team/organization. It is the fans that have have turned me against them. Of course, you cannot say this of all Red Sox fans. That would just be a massive overgeneralization. However, there is definitely a collective that are propelling this perception.

as a rays fan i say he is exactly correct. we have to put up with these pigs comming down every time the sox are in town.. talk about visual pollution. seeing these pot-bellied, pasty skinned, hairy backed knuckle dragging goons walk down the beach is disturbing. and the men look even worse!

fan loyalty is fine.  getting excited about it is fine.  even throwing light insults is fine.  screaming obscenities or insulting a person for things not relevant to baseball....is *literally* insane (if done with actual malice, and not merely as a joke).  people who act in that fashion should be removed from the park, the same way a player would do that if they said those kinds of things to an umpire.

 There's a thing called Pride- any hometown or baseball fanatic knows this, Baltimore has a great stadium and they call it Fenway South- seriously its a riot when you see more of the other fans than the home town ones, all the times when other teams come to visit, its their fan base that covers Baltimore's losses- 
  Luke needs a shot of reality.. YOU shouldnt insult fans no matter where they're from- your salary is paid for by US,, we OWN you.. we are your DADDY-

Lukie..you're gonna need ear plugs., when Bawston, Filladelfia and all them others you whined about will make you remember-

And I love the cracks against Scott and the Orioles -- REMEMBER, CHUMPS? THIS IS THE TEAM THAT KNOCKED THE RED SOX OUT OF THE PLAYOFFS. Respect your betters.

Hilarious.

We already knew it, but it's a beautiful thing hearing Scott confirm that the obnoxious Red Sox fanbase contributed directly to the team's 2011 humiliation. The pathetic team and their pathetic fans deserve each other.

Unfortunately if the Orioles had ownership that would look out for their team and the fans, Camden Yards would not be known as "Fenway South" when the Sox travel there. I think it's a shame that much of the time there are more Sox fans in those seats than Oriole fans, and that stinks. No matter who you are if you're playing your heart out, and no one is coming to see you play, then you get discouraged, and spout your mouth off. The Rays wen't through this for a while, and the Orioles are STILL going through it. Don't blame the other team for putting more fans in the seats Luke, blame the ownership that can't put your local fans in those seats!
