If the Diamondbacks didn't want the Dodgers to swim in their pool, they should have beat them, plain and simple.

I don't get this logic at all. It's fine to celebrate but jumping in the pool is going over the top! It reminds me of when Patriots beat the Chargers in playoffs and mocked them on their logo at mid-field

There's a difference between mocking a team on their logo and celebrating. When you've worked your *** off since spring training, you can celebrate in any way you want. If you don't like it, don't let them win.

And LT will forever being a ***** for crying...then the next season we mopped them in New England if I'm not mistaken......that's when his *** sat on the sideline with his jacket hood over his head roll.gif

I guess we have different views of "Sportsmanship"

Plus the dbacks prez had the nerve to ask them not to celebrate on field if they clinched, that combined with the emotion of winning the division after being a billion games out and left for dead, and the bad blood from the brawl game....classless or not, don't eem care. Throwing at greinkes head was pretty classless too, so we're even.

It's been a long time since a baseball loss actually hurt. This kinda did

Mesoraco coming up BIG tonight. smokin.gif

I loved B Ham swiping second on Martin at crunch time, after Martin said he couldn't wait to throw him out tonight.

Didn't last year's late season collapse hurt?

Yeah but I don't necessarily remember one game and that started early enough where post season hopes weren't a strong reality. I haven't been 'into' baseball this late in 20 years laugh.gif

Yep. You view sportsmenship however it is you view it, and the rest of us view sportsmenship as a made up word.

As a die hard Giants fan who hates absolutely everything Dodgers related (apart from Brian Wilson), I have absolutely zero problem with the pool celebration by the Dodgers. I thought it was hilarious, and looked like they were all having a great time. Isnt fun what the game is all about?

Greinke getting hit in the head was classless.
If the diamondbacks wouldn't of came out with that statement saying they didn't want the dodgers to celebrate on their field, this wouldn't of happened. It feels like it was a moment of, "oh really? F you! See how you like this celebration"

Goes to show that baseball has some of the most overly-sensitive players in pro sports.

Only wish someone on the Dodgers would have rocked an Ian Kennedy shirsey and jumped in the pool.

Exactly. That was very pitiful on their part. Still doesn't mean you do what the Dodgers did though. Then again, I thought it happened right after the game, but I guess it happened later on?

Exactly laugh.gif

It was after the customary locker room champagne and bud light showers, after the interviews, etc. the stadium was pretty much empty, and only half the team or so ran out laugh.gif

Also,

The Dodgers misunderstood the intent of the Diamondbacks' request, according to team president Stan Kasten. He thought they were asking Dodgers players not to celebrate raucously in front of Diamondbacks fans. By the time the players took the plunge, the stadium was largely empty.
that's my president laugh.gifpimp.gif

Blows my mind is became as big as it did. Not a huge deal IMO. Big win for the Pirates last night, critical after the Friday meltdown

Unlikely for the A's to overcome the Red Sox for best record in the AL, but keeping the lead over the Tigers is HUGE.
