To add to a story that just won't die, Bill Chastain of MLB.com had an interview with former Baltimore Oriole and current Tampa Bay Ray, Luke Scott about the final night of the season. You know the night that plunged a knife deep into the heart of Sox fans. He had a few choice words to say about Red Sox fans in particular:

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."

Boston fans? Vulgarity? NO EFFIN WAY. God forbid people swear! Scott makes it seem like every other team doesn't have a group of fans that heckle the crap out of players. According to Scott, this is exclusive to Boston fans! But this is also the same man who believes Obama isn't an American so don't rely on his thoughts too much.

 It's not OUR fault that the Orioles have been cellar dwellers in the basement and allow Sox fans to have a weekend trip to Baltimore, watch an entire series and STILL come out spending less then a couple games at Fenway. If your teammates played with the same intensity and vigor that you did in that final series, maybe some people in the town would recognize. You know the same fan base that idolized Cal Ripken and then split once the Nationals came to town because they at least gave them some hope for the future. Don't blame Sox fans for wanting to follow their team.

Of course Scott continues and explains his ride home from the ballpark:


"I got to see a priceless thing driving back to my apartment," Scott said. "I see all the Boston fans walking around, and I mean they were crying crocodile tears. People were like this, walking side by side."

Scott wrapped his arm around a reporter's waist and began to wail to demonstrate.

"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.'"

What a ballsy move! So you just decide to kick a person while they're down.. bravo. Stay classy, Mr. Scott. He had to pick the weakest looking group of people. Maybe even a mother and some little kids. They couldn't be Massholes.  Why taunt a bunch of emotional, depressed, and possibly heavily intoxicated fans? That's just asking for a broken windshield or two.

Finally, he explains the pandemonium that happened in the clubhouse.

"The clubhouse afterward was like we'd just won the World Series -- a lot of celebrating, a lot of high emotions," Scott said.

Those emotions escalated a notch moments later when Longoria made the Rays winners with a homer.

"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.'"

This line is gold. As if Scott didn't have to pack his stuff the next day and start his off-season too. Well maybe Scott packed up a little early since he had surgery on a torn labrum in July. That's right, Scott did as much as I did in that Sox-Orioles series. He was just hanging out and rehabbing the shoulder. What a douche.

The irony of it all is that now he's in Tampa Bay, which has less of a fan base then the O's and only sell out when it's a playoff series or when the Yankees are in town. If his intention was to grab the attention of Red Sox fans, then congratulations. He will now be haunted by Sox fans for the rest of his life.
