Josh Beckett looked like he was ready to throw down after Scott homered onto Eutaw St.
"I didn't notice anything," Scott said. "I was just kind of enjoying the moment and just, as I usually do, I try to just enjoy this opportunity with the Lord as much as I can. I was just kind of thanking him around the bases I caught it, nothing more than what I normally do. I caught it, saw it and tossed my bat off the way and went into my trot. Just enjoying the moment.
"When I got in the dugout, the guys said he was yelling or something like that. Staring. I have all the respect in the world for Josh Beckett. He's one of the best pitchers in the game. And I respect everyone who takes the mound against me. He's a tremendous competitor. You know, I'm an emotional person, as well, so I can understand people getting emotional, getting fired up before a game."
Beckett didn't sound like he wanted to talk about the incident, asking Boston reporters whether this was TMZ.
Of course these guys are going to get fired up and Josh Beckett will be pissed. He just gave up a monster home run and he didn't get a new ball from the home plate ump Fieldin Culbreth right away. I think those are grounds for an ass kickin' in Beckett's book.
