Just because he’s moved away to Tampa doesn’t mean he’s changed. Scott has only been with the Rays for a few months and he’s already made headlines by showing off his seven foot long spears and calling Red Sox fans “ruthless and vulgar.”
His disdain for the city of Boston continued on Friday. When asked about historic Fenway Park, which celebrates its 100th year this season, Scott didn’t have anything good to say. “As a baseball player, going there to work, it’s a dump,” Scott said according to ESPNBoston.com.
“I mean, it’s old. It does have a great feel and nostalgia, but at the end of the day, I’d rather be at a good facility where I can get my work in,” he added. “A place where I can go hit in the cage, where I have space and it’s a little more comfortable to come to work.”
I can’t imagine these comments will be taken will by Red Sox fans when the Rays take the field Friday night.
“From a fan’s perspective, it’s probably pretty cool to go see a game at a historic park. But from a player’s point of view, it’s not a place where you want to go to work.”
