Diamondbacks: Dodgers' Pool Plunge Requires Retaliation 


By Michael Dunlap 


COMMENTARY
 | The Arizona Diamondbacks were slapped in the face by the Los Angeles Dodgers when the men in blue and white decided to jump into Chase Field's signature pool after clinching the National League West.


Retaliation is needed for an act that the Dodgers had to realize would ruffle some feathers. Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson is old-school and would probably like to throw a couple of haymakers, but I'm here to propose a different kind of payback.


This feud runs deeper than just a disrespectful celebration. The Arizona Diamondbacks didn't like the Los Angeles Dodgers much before the pool incident. Heck, the city of Phoenix doesn't care for the city of Los Angeles. The Phoenix Suns hate the Los Angeles Lakers, theArizona Cardinals hate the -- never mind that one.


The most satisfying retaliation in the short term (and the one most recognized by the older generation) would be a bit of sweet chin music to one of the Dodgers' stars. Perhaps Yasiel Puig and his grandstanding would enjoy a 95-mph heater off of his knuckles. That's still not the long-term solution.

And the city of Los Angelas could give two shits about the entire state of Arizona.

OK, who peed in the pool?

The screams that emanate from public pools throughout the summer now surround the lamest controversy to ever saddle MLB.



Dodger Scribe's Tony Jackson
 (h/t Deadspin) reports there may have been some Los Angeles Dodgers players who relieved themselves when they jumped into the pool at the Arizona Diamondbacks' Chase Field last Thursday, causing the reporter to change his stance on whether it was fine for the team to take over that area of the stadium:


The reason I am doing an about-face here is that it has come to my attention that one of the Dodgers players who jumped in the pool — and I will do him the favor of leaving his name out of this for now — openly and loudly bragged after leaving the pool about having urinated in it.



To me, that takes this to a whole different place. It takes it from a giddy, spontaneous celebration to an ugly, disgusting display of utter classlessness.



There also are indications that MULTIPLE Dodgers players urinated into the pool, but I can’t tell you that with any certainty.

The Los Angeles Dodgerscelebratory dip in the Arizona Diamondbacks' pool after clinching the NL West on Thursday isn't just the talk of the baseball world. It's got even one of the country's most famous politicians fuming.


John McCain — the Arizona senator and 2008 presidential candidate — blasted the Dodgers on Friday via Twitter, saying many of the same things that Diamondbacks fans were saying Thursday. Although, "spoiled brats" is particularly delicious.

You ever notice that no one adults or children get out of the pool and use the restroom, all that beer and soda goes somewhere. Speaking from experience as a previous pool owner, the chemicals take care of a lot of stuff, they will not however aid you in retrieving a baby Ruth from the bottom.

This is awesome. Claim something happened that could not be substantiated and follows it up with not naming a name for fear of that person calling columnist on his ****. Too damn easy.

ddgerfan, thelateddgerfan no longer.
