Luke Scott wants to be your dog.

When Orioles left fielder Luke Scott came to the plate in the fourth inning of yesterday’s Opening Day loss to Tampa, the Camden Yards PA system pounded out an unmistakable few bars of Iggy and the Stooges’ 1969 song “I Wanna Be Your Dog.”Scott has a first edition vinyl pressing of this album. He keeps it next to his gun.

We’re still learning about Scott. He came to Baltimore as part of the trade that sent Miguel Tejada to Houston. He’s said to hit with some power, cranking out 18 homers last year. And during spring training, fans learned that Scott is the holder of a permit to carry a concealed firearm. Oh, and he’s a born again Christian.

The Stooges, of course, are Iggy Pop’s band of strung-out miscreants and misanthropes, the band that ushered out hippie music and, along with the MC5 and the Velvet Underground, paved the way for angry punk rock acts like the Ramones, the Clash and the Sex Pistols. And “I Wanna Be Your Dog” isn’t exactly a tune you’ll hear in church. I’ve never been able to figure out what exactly is so lewd about “I Wanna Be Your Dog,” but there’s something vaguely creepy about it. I love it, of course.

So, could Luke Scott also be a Stooges fan? Seems an odd match. I guess there’s always the possibility that he didn’t choose the music himself.

Also, since Scott strolled to the plate immediately following Ramon Hernandez’s 6-4-3 rally killer, David Chalk commented that maybe the Orioles will play the Stooges after every double play they hit into.

In which case, the season might be a little more entertaining than I thought.
