“First off, all he did was make it worse for himself when the Orioles visit again in July. …
Remember this Luke, we don’t forget things up here. If you thought it was bad this weekend, you just wait until you return. You’ll probably end up crying because it seems to me that you’re a little soft.”
Ummm … doesn’t that argument pretty much support Luke’s original point?
Of course, no Red Sox retort would be complete without (Do I even need to tell you?) Boston’s all-purpose rebuttal for baseball arguments.
“If he thinks this is bad, what does he think of the fans in New York.” (sic)
At least Luke Scott is in good company. Try, for example, Torii Hunter.
“Though the Red Sox have done a great deal to remake the image of Fenway Park in recent years, visiting players continue to voice concerns about fan conduct. The latest example came from Angels center fielder Torii Hunter.
Hunter told the Press-Enterprise of Riverside, Calif., that until the last couple of years, he regularly heard racist taunts when visiting Fenway as a member of the Minnesota Twins.”
Wonder how they made it worse for Hunter during his return trip to Fenway following those comments last April?
