BOSTON (CBS) – Tampa Bay Rays designated hitter Luke Scott really dislikes everything about the Boston Red Sox.

As a member of the Orioles last season, Scott called Sox fans “vulgar” and called out their arrogance. Now a member of  Rays, he is taking swipes at their beloved ballpark.

“As a baseball player, going there to work, it’s a dump,” Scott told MLB.com, as his Rays open a four-game series with the Red Sox at Fenway on Friday. “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.”

It should be interesting to hear how the “vulgar” Fenway faithful greet Scott during the Rays’ introductions on Friday.
