We heard you the first time, Luke.

Dave Trembley laughs his ass off at Luke Scott's special edition Presidents Day beard.Luke Scott can’t seem to tell enough people that he doesn’t want to DH in Baltimore. He mentioned it a couple times over the winter. Then today, Scott told the Baltimore Sun’s Peter Schmuck “I don’t mind doing a little DH-ing … once or twice a week. It gives you a little bit of a break if you get a tweak somewhere. That’s good. I will do whatever they ask me to do to the best of my ability, but my opinion: I don’t want to DH for 130 games.”

So, there you have it. Scott’s “opinion is that he doesn’t want to DH” full time. That’s funny. Because Orioles manager Dave Trembley probably has that opinion too. Where the player and the manager differ, though, is what to do with Scott instead.

Scott sees himself as the left fielder. But the Orioles traded a starting pitcher (or Garrett Olson, who passed for one in Baltimore) for Felix Pie in the offseason. Barring a Pie injury (which sounds tragic), it doesn’t look like Scott’s going to see much action in left. What’s more, Scott can’t hit lefthanded pitching. And he’ll be 31 in June. Pie’s 24 and a much better fielder.

Hard to think Scott’s not the odd man out. Nick Markakis and Adam Jones have the other two outfield spots locked down. And we haven’t even mentioned Ryan Freel yet. Still, for now, Scott says he’s a team guy and he’ll do whatever Trembley asks him to do. Let’s check in with Luke Scott in May and see if he still feels that way.
