Tampa Bay Rays DH Luke Scott is a bizarre man. When Scott showed up at Rays Spring Training on Monday, he showed up with the head of a boar in tow. Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times shared the picture to the right, and Gary Shelton of the Times has the full story on the head.
Scott bounced through the clubhouse carrying a large boar's head — the first one he killed with a spear, he would later explain. The eyes stared ahead blankly, and the tusks curled around the snout. Scott thought it would be a wonderful attachment to the side of his locker.
Soon, he would tell the story, again, about the clacking sound the boar made just before it threatened to charge. To emphasize, Scott thrust his lower jaw forward and clacked himself.
Different guy, Luke Scott.
Yeah…different is a good word for Scott, who has gone on birther rants, called Fenway Park a dump, and slumped so badly last season, that it drove him to tears. Taking all of that into consideration, is it really any surprise that Scott hunts boars with spears, let alone that he would bring the head of one of them into the clubhouse?
