Apparently, Scott was too busy basking in the glory of his homer to notice that Beckett was yelling and staring him down.

Scott, who went 1-for-4 in last night's game, also told reporters that he has "all the respect in the world for Josh Beckett" and called him "one of the best pitchers in the game." Meanwhile, in the visitor's clubhouse, Beckett was lashing out at reporters who asked him about Scott's bat flip.
"What is this, TMZ?'' Beckett said. "I thought we were talking about a baseball game. You want to know about bat flips and talking to umpires. I think, why don't we just stick to the game.''
Will there be retribution the next time Beckett faces Scott? Sure sounds like it.
"Those things have a way of working themselves out," Beckett said.
Does Scott's celebration deserve retaliation? What's your take?
