Nyjer Morgan vs. Chris Volstad…And the Winner is?

Posted in Major League Baseball with tags , , , , , , on September 2, 2010 by sportsguru09

Neither one! The winner is Gaby Sanchez, the Marlins first baseman. One of the best clotheslines I’ve seen in a long long time, ESPECIALLY on a baseball field….

Now, here’s the thing. Everyone is all up in arms about what Morgan did, the unwritten rules of baseball, yada yada yada. Who cares about the “unwritten rules?” The guys that “make them up” are pansies. If you follow the chain of events here, Morgan does absolutely nothing wrong and is simply trying to protect himself and his team. People and the marlins were complaining about “Oh, we had a 10 run lead in the 4th inning, he shouldn’tve stole two bases”…you know what? SCREW THAT. What should the Nationals have done? Quit? I, as a die hard Atlanta Braves, have seen, this year, the Bravos come back from a 9 run lead (in the 9th inning no less) and blow a 10-1 lead on separate occasions. It’s not like this game was in the 8th or the 9th. NO WAY should Morgan and the Nats have stopped playing. Anyone who thinks so is a quitter, including the Marlins. Why wouldn’t he steal bases and try to get in scoring position for his team to get back in the game? It’s ridiculous how everyone is just so darn sensitive. If everyone played balls to the wall, it’d be a lot more entertaining and competitive that’s for sure. For goodness sakes, they’re getting paid millions of dollars to “half ass it.” Forget that, give me a ball and let me throw a few up there around 90 mph. At least I’ll bust my ass every time I walk out onto a Major League Baseball field. Pro athletes can be such babies…..suck it up and deal…..

MASN, You Need A Replacement…

Ok Nats fans, you have to agree with me on this. Rob Dibble, one of your two MASN and Washington Nationals announcers, is absolutely 100% obnoxious broadcasting your baseball games. Depending on the night, Bob Carpenter or former Atlanta Brave Don Sutton, a Hall of Fame pitcher with his rightful spot in Cooperstown, should be doing the broadcasting by himself if it comes down to it.
robdibbleNow, I do know that hometown announcers are biased for their given team (and yes, they should be), but Rob Dibble is a meathead. And no, this isn’t just from watching the Nats play the Braves the past few days. The same was happening when the Nats were getting swept by the Marlins last week. To be honest, he sounds hammered on the air and routinely slurs his speech. MASN, at least get someone who doesn’t speak broken English on your broadcasting team. He gives Don Sutton and Bob Carpenter bad names for being in the same booth as “Nasty Boy.” Rob Dibble, also called “The Officer,” was a legit Major League pitcher until late in his career when angered tantrums and bar brawls highlighted the end of Dibble’s career in the pros. From there, he had pretty much fallen off the face of the Earth until ESPN and now MASN gave him a chance to talk about baseball. Poor choice guys…

Without a doubt, Dibble is a total moron. Tonight, for example, Lastings Milledge got called out strikes and proceeded to curse the umpire on his way back to the dugout. As he verbally lit up the umpire, Dibble made some stupid comment about how Milledge was right to say what he said and that the umpire should not have warned him. Are you kidding me Rob Dibble?!? Milledge, a bum in his own right, dropped multiple “F-bombs” on his way back to the pine. Be realistic big guy. When your guy screws up, don’t defend it just because you’re a meathead, you’re in a booth, and you think you’re proving something. Just tell us what’s going on. Nobody needs your two-cents on how you feel on the given situation. It’s like listening to a two year old read me the Comedy section of the newspaper. MASN, if anything, let Bob Carpenter do his job and phase Dibble out of the conversation. It’d be more quality television. Because in all seriousness, I think my IQ drops every time words come out of the guy’s mouth…
