    I love what Luke Scott said about Fenway, especially about Boston's fans

    http://espn.go.com/boston/mlb/story/...nway-park-dump

    Tampa Bay Rays designated hitter Luke Scott told MLB.com he thinks Fenway is "a dump" as the Boston Red Sox prepare to kick off their 100th season in the ballpark.

    "As a baseball player, going there to work, it's a dump," said Scott, whose Rays play the Red Sox on Friday in their Fenway opener. "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. 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.

    "You're packed in like sardines there. It's hard to get your work in. ... You have to go to their weight room if you want to lift. 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."

    For Scott, who was a member of the Orioles when Baltimore beat Boston on the last day of last season to help prevent the Red Sox from making the playoffs, it's the second time in as many months he's taken a shot at the Sox. During spring training, he said keeping Boston out of the playoffs was even more pleasing because of his disdain for its fans.

    "Just their arrogance," Scott told MLB.com at the time. "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, a 4-3 walk-off Orioles victory] 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."
    But the better part of the story is Peter Gammons' crybaby response to Scott via Twitter:

    Luke Scott's ops plus is now double his IQ
    crybaby

    Hopefully the Rays can find a gated, ethnic-restricted community with a batting cage for Luke Scott to prepare for this afternoon's game
    Completely innappropriate

    RT @RedSoxRedShoes: I hear that Luke Scott of the #Rays is skipping the 100th anniversary game unless Fenway Park shows its birth certificate. #RedSox
    OMG! Nobody is allowed to criticize Fenway!!

    CBS had a story about Fenway turning 100. Watching it, I missed Tiger Stadium, and realized it too would have turned 100 this year!

    Comerica has grown on me, and now we have some good memories in that park as well. But I think Baseball parks, more than any other sport, are better when they are steeped in tradition and nostalgia. I like old fashioned ball parks.

    It's completely different for the fan and the player. I totally understand Scott's frustrations. It's not about nostalgia for players, it's about being prepared to play a ballgame
