Do you realize how much the game has changed- Scott averaged 113 strikeouts per 162 game season....a lot then but clearly middle-of-the-road today (heck, Mike Trout averages 151!)?My father hated George Scott because he struck out too much and didn't put the ball in play. I hate Lugo because he played so well in Tampa and not here. Some of those guys in the late 60's and early 70's were pretty bad ~ Mike Andrews comes to mind. I don't hate ball players for their politics, but their attitude or inabilities.
But I'd hate Scott and Red Sox management for another reason- (1) He was clearly on the heavy side when he played here, had an up-and-down performance; and they traded him (2) He went to the Brewers and looked GOOD in those tight unis of the 70s and played well (3) The Sox got him back in a horrible deal and he got fat again.
