Dodgers Celebrate In Diamondbacks Pool

Thursday, the Los Angeles Dodgers celebrated their 2013 NL West title by taking a swim in the Chase Field pool. That has upset some folks in Arizona, which makes sense. The Dodgers had already been asked not to return to the field after celebrating in the clubhouse, yet they did so anyway. “I think it’s tired and disrespectful,” D-backs infielder Willie Bloomquist said of the dip in the pool. “It’s surprising because they have a lot of veteran guys on that team that I thought were classier than that.”

The Dodgers probably peed in the pool, too.

Yeah, this is actually a pretty dick move, IMO. They didn't win the World Series, they just won the division -- they can spray each other with champagne in the clubhouse, but actually disrespecting another team's stadium like that is pretty bush-league sportsmanship IMO. The world won't come to an end or anything, but it does make me think a bit less of them and muse upon the potential vagaries of fate and karma.

I would love to watch a ball game with the maximum level of "class." Player hits a homerun, shows no emotion, slowly trots around the bases, goes back to the dugout, no high fives from teammates. All of them sit there sullenly with their mouths hanging open like Kristen Stewart; the next player slowly walks to the plate. Keeps his head down. No players ever smile or look at each other. Full on "classy," all the way. I guess the stat heads aren't the only ones who want the games to be played by robots.

This is the culmination of a season's worth of bad blood between the Dodgers and D-backs. If Arizona wants to cast blame for the pool party, start with Ian Kennedy.

The overreaction by the Phoenix media is something to behold. Even the Arizona Republic's editorial board felt the need to chime in.

As usual Brandon McCarthy is the classiest and most sane dude in baseball.

Celebrating is fun. I don't care how and where you do it. Only thing to care about is what we need to do to celebrate in our pool next year.

My sympathy is muted by the D'backs asking the Dodgers before the series to not celebrate on the field. All Arizona had to do was win three of four.

#9 - This brings to mind an episode of Deep Space Nine which featured a baseball game between the Humans and Vulcans on their holodeck. Hilarity ensued with the perplexed Vulcans trying not to lose their temper.

Were any non-baseball people even left in the ballpark at that point? I mean they supposedly celebrated on the field, celebrated in the clubhouse, and THEN a few Dodgers went out to the pool. So who saw this egregious violation of baseball's many, many, many, many, many, many unwritten rules? The dainty Diamondbacks who, as pointed out above, failed to win the game, thus precipitating the celebration in the first place.

Based on the events of this season plus the Trade For Grit, the D-backs sound like they have some sense of entitlement.

Heh. Just watched that today on Netflix. The part where the Vulcan runner missed home and Nog had to run into the dugout trying to figure out which one to tag had me yelling at the computer "That's not how it's done. Just tag the plate you idiot!"

If it mattered that much to the Diamondbacks, they could have won the game, or failing that, taken their bats to the outfield to defend the honor of their sacred pool.

Can't do that. It breaks the unwritten rule about not showing up the pitcher. Player better haul ass around the bases instead. But not too fast because that breaks the unwritten rule about phony hustle mocking the other team and showing them up as well.

Bingo. This is what people are missing when commenting on the silliness of this. These teams haven't been getting along all year. They had a major scrum at the Ravine in the game where Kennedy hit Greinke, and subsequently the D-Backs tried to make some Dodger fans behind home plate at Chase change their shirts. None of the players have forgotten these things. My guess is the Dodgers wouldn't have made a point to take a splash in the pool if there wasn't already bad blood there. Nor would Bloomquist have been quite so bothered by it.

If the Diamondbacks management were serious about the Dodgers not celebrating in their pool, they could have drained it. Of course, Arizona wouldn't get the money from whatever group had reserved it that day.

Gold star,

Just for clarity the dbacks requested the dodgers not to go back out to the field after entering the clubhouse. Part of that might have been a safety issue, although most fans were gone at the time.

This was a douche move....but whatever, the dodgers made the d backs their ####### the entire second half... Starting with the brawl. Why stop now , right ?
   46. shoewizard Posted: September 20, 2013 at 08:45 AM (#4546029)

Even more surprising he has hit .312/.340./.393 the last two years for a 97 OPS+

Overall in 3 years as a d back .291 avg, .699 OPS and 89 OPS +

A lot of teams have had worse utility guys the last 3 years

IIRC, when the Royals won their first ever division title in '76, Fred Patek and some other players took a dip in there.

subsequently the D-Backs tried to make some Dodger fans behind home plate at Chase change their shirts


Jeez, I missed that. Apparently Arizona is trying to surpass St. Louis as whiniest, pettiest franchise in baseball.

In this version, Bloomquist gives props to the Bronx Bombers' celebrating skills:
"I just think they have enough guys on that team that it's surprising they would allow that to happen," Diamondbacks infielder Willie Bloomquist said. "I'll give credit where credit's due. They won the division, so congratulations to them. I would expect someone to act with a little more class. I highly doubt the New York Yankees would do something like that."

In other words, what would Billy Martin do?

My favorite moment at the Chase Field pool area.


I remember during either the All-Star game or the homerun derby a guy jumping from behind/above the pool, catching a homerun in one hand while holding a full beer in the other, landing in the pool, and then standing up wet with the catch made clean and the beer somehow un-spilled while a bunch of bikini-clad girls cheered around him in the pool.

Bunch of guys jumping in the pool and splashing around? Sounds like good clean fun.

Disrespectful would be the Dodgers marching from the dugout, with military precision, single-file along the foul line and warning track, whistling the Bridge Over The River Kwai theme the whole time, then forming-up on the pool perimeter, unzipping, and urinating into the pride of Diamondback Nation.

Maybe next year?

Without the Wild Card, this would have eliminated the Diamondbacks, so they could have joined in a celebration of competition, of battling all season but alas falling short, and recognize that the Dodgers played better than them, and that their competitive season was effectively over.

But with the stupid *($#ing Wild Card, the Diamondbacks aren't yet mathematically eliminated.

(figures some future Sox defeat is what you post about...)

-- Red Sox clinch at Yankee stadium, construct a bridge of bats and catcher's gear to cross over the "moat."

-- Dodgers do victory dives from the stands into McCovey cove at AT & T.

-- A's players serve as "conductors" of that train at Enron after clinching.

-- Or if Texas clinches there, Adrian Beltre burrows into Tal's hill and acts like a prairie dog.

-- Some Cardinals piss on the Wrigley Ivy.

-- After clinching, the Mariners blaze the mother of all joints while lounging on those "rocks" in Anaheim.

Already been done.

Sept. 20, 2004 at Milwaukee -- This is the reason the Brewers have a rule about visiting players sliding down Bernie Brewer's slide. Matt Morris made the start for the Cardinals and allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits through a swift five innings. He struck out seven. The Cardinals celebrated at Miller Park by taking some turns on Bernie's slide out beyond the left-field wall. Now there is a sign in the visitors' clubhouse reminding teams that's a no-no.

If a visiting team clinches at Arlington, they should find some large banners with their own logo, climb onto that grassy area in center field, and run to and fro with the flags a la team employees running with the Lone Star banner after a Ranger hits a home run.

From the Phoenix fishwrap:
When the Diamondbacks clinched the division in 2011, their post-game pool party was an organic masterpiece. The moment became part of the mythology of Chase Field, where the pool became much more than a sponsorship gimmick and showcase for high-dollar fans.

For Diamondbacks players, it became the reward at the end of the journey. Almost like the Pacific Ocean for Lewis and Clark.

Surely, the Dodgers were aware of the breach of etiquette. If they weren’t, it’s an even worse commentary on their lack of awareness, on their lack of respect for baseball history.
WTF?
