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.READ MORE: Man Indicted In 1-Year-Old's 2019 Drowning At New Hampshire Motel
“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.”READ MORE: Colin Powell, First Black Secretary Of State, Dies At 84 Of Complications From COVID-19
“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.”
