I would like to take a second to respond to Dibble’s comments trying to walk his original comments back, however. Via TCM:
“If you’re hurt, you can’t suck it up, so that’s a moot point, but if you’re not hurt, that’s what I was talking about. If you’re not hurt and your arm’s fine, then keep pitching….Our opinions are formulated through facts, not fiction, not their little chat room jargon, and so they can try and twist it any way they want, and if a guy’s hurt, he’s hurt, he’s going to go on the disabled list, it’s a moot point. But if he’s not hurt, get your butt out there and play….They’re two totally different scenarios, so, you know, stick to what you know, which is nothing, and stick to your little blogs.”
Hey Rob, suck it up! This obviously isn’t what you said, and even you can read well enough to know this “defense” isn’t at all convincing. And this is a bit of a pattern with you, isn’t it? When your troglodyte comments about women talking at baseball games, embarrassing their husbands, etc. drew criticism, you blamed everyone else for not understanding what you were saying, even though there wasn’t really any other way to interpret them and you didn’t offer any alternative meanings.
So what’s the deal Rob? For such a manly-man, you sure don’t stand by your convictions and defend your opinion that often. Lashing out at people because they write on the internet isn’t exactly a stinging insult these days, it mostly just makes you look out-of-touch and, well, like you don’t really have much of a comeback.
Whatever the reason is Rob, from here, it certainly doesn’t look like you have the fortitude to handle defending your position. Maybe if Ted Lerner busts out some racial epithets on some of his players you’ll find your backbone…defending Lerner.
