Apparently, neither Luke Scott nor Nuke LaGarza were finished debating Garza’s comments, from before the series, that he wouldn’t allow any Oriole to be “comfortable” in the box because he “owed them” after he got shelled in his last start in Baltimore.
Leaving aside Scott and Garza’s theological discourse (a topic not only inappropriate for this space but also for this day), can we agree that Luke and Nuke need some help when it comes to making fans care about feuds?
- Luke, if you are going to taunt an opposing pitcher about his trash talk, maybe do it before he strikes you out en route to a decisive 4-1 win.
- Nuke, are you really taunting a team that is 50-86? Isn’t that a little like me taunting my two-year-old daughter before we play one-on-one hoops?
- Luke, how do you pass up the opportunity to compare Garza to the Count from Sesame Street?
- Nuke, when you are clearly the better player in the feud, why do you acknowledge the other guy by talking about his home run celebration? If you want a feud, the only response to Luke’s comment is “…well, when you have a career .351 OBP, like Luke Scott, you must be an expert on being humbled.”
