Rob Dibble is a Wimp

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.

  1. JE, I live in the Baltimore-DC area (for now), so I watch Orioles and Nats games on MASN and get the rest of my baseball from MLBTV. I've seen more than my share of Dibble's broadcasting.

  2. Sounds like I should be happy living in the sticks – if it weren't for your posts, re Mr Dibble, I wouldn't have even known he existed.


    Which, in this case, sounds like a good thing.  Enjoy him, guys – he's all yours. ;)

  3. You are way off, Brien. Anyone who listens to MASN broadcasts (all five of us, that is) knows that Dibble says something stupid every other minute. Among other things, I know of no other baseball analyst who *incessantly* carps about the strike zone.

  4. Not only constantly complains about balls and strikes, he CONTINUES to do so even after the pitch-track replay shows he was wrong.
    Plenty of chatter about this in NatsTown (not least of all because there ain’t much else to talk about, with Strasburg going down and the team sucking again).  At least he hasn’t used the “in your mom’s basement in your underwear” line yet.
