The Los Angeles Dodgers clinched the NL West with a win over the Arizona Diamondbacks today. Prior to the game it was rumored that the Diamondbacks asked the Dodgers not to come back on the field and celebrate if they were to clinch the division. The Dodgers clinched and decided to honor the Diamondbacks wishes by celebrating in the Chase Field pool located in center field… which, technically, is not on the field.
Some people are calling the Dodgers classless for doing this, but I think it was classless to ask the Dodgers not to return to the field and celebrate. The Dodgers earned the division title and if the Diamondbacks didn’t want them celebrating on their field – win the game.
Raul Ibanez wishes he could have this throw back:
You never want to be compared to this:
The Manning brothers sure do…
“It was expected. We’ve all been in LA, and not a whole lot of people can handle being under the bright lights. Everybody wants to do it, but when you get there, there are certain pressures. I think it was a safe move for him to go to a little town like Houston. That’s right, little town. I said it.” – Shaq when asked about Dwight Howard
Homer Bailey brought his A-Game to the ballpark against the San Francisco Giants last night. He dominated the Giants, pitching the first no hitter of the 2013 MLB season.
No hitters are rare, but this one was extra special. Bailey was also the last pitcher to pitch a no hitter in 2012, which makes him the first pitcher since Nolan Ryan in 1974-1975 to pitch MLB’s consecutive no hitters.
For the season, Bailey is a modest 5-6 with a 3.57 ERA while striking out 111 in 111 innings.
