Rob Dibble being Rob Dibble

I'm not about to defend Rob Dibble -- hey, I missed Nyjer Morgan and the Nationals' big brawl with the Marlins because there's a great sale going on at Macy's this weekend -- but ESPN Radio's Mike Greenberg (via J. Freedom duLac) did raise a fair point about the former Nationals broadcaster on "Mike and Mike in the Morning": "It doesn't make sense to me. You just fired Rob Dibble for being Rob Dibble."

Nats fans differ.

@shebaker Buyer's remorse. RT @jfdulac: ESPN Radio's Mike Greenberg: "It doesn't make sense to me. You just fired Rob Dibble for being Rob Dibble."

@kevin_reiss Never should've hired him @jfdulac ESPN Radio Mike Greenberg: "It doesn't make sense to me. You just fired Rob Dibble for being Rob Dibble."

@jaimiegraham So Dibble gets fired for ignorant comments about #Strasburg, but not for blatant misogyny a couple weeks before? Great message, #Nats!

Fortunately, Dibble keeps giving. My colleague Steve just said to me: "The White Sox have a player named Sale. He must be your favorite player."

And Jordan Ruby supplies the top five Dibble moments.

Comments

The comment about women was stupid and sexist but wasn't going to physically damage anyone playing for the team. The comment about Strasburg could have had the effect of endangering injured players in the future. If players are called out as 'unmanly' by the TV announcer for failing to report injuries to the trainer, they could keep on playing while seriously injured and permanently damage themselves.

Bland saccharin reporting/announcing is no fun. I like the stuff Dibs spewed out, and think Mike Wise is a riot! And they're probably correct about more than you donks give them credit for - you should see all the bs conversations women are having around me at baseball games. It doesn't mean all women are like that - but quite a few are - and guess what? Some non "guys-guys" are doing it too! Just becuz Nats Park was the "place to be seen" in DC for a few months. Now they can all go back to their gossip driven nothing lives and stay out of Nats aprk for a few years until Bryce comes up - loser Yakkers!!!

Morgan was steamed because Volstad threw a ball behind Morgan in the top of the sixth. This came after Morgan was Beaning in the fourth inning, and a day after Morgan increased tension between the teams when the Marlins were drilled receiver Brett Hayes.
