The Dodgers May Have Peed In The D-Backs Pool

Dodgers_PoolJust when you thought baseball’s dumbest controversy had dribbled off, here comes a report that the Los Angeles Dodgers treated the Chase Field pool like a giant toilet. L.A. is No. 1 indeed.

But one reporter who initially defended the Dodgers’ actions is reconsidering his stance in light of newly leaked information. Tony Jackson at Dodger Scribe:

The reason I am doing an about-face here is that it has come to my attention that one of the Dodgers players who jumped in the pool — and I will do him the favor of leaving his name out of this for now — openly and loudly bragged after leaving the pool about having urinated in it.

To me, that takes this to a whole different place. It takes it from a giddy, spontaneous celebration to an ugly, disgusting display of utter classlessness.

There also are indications that MULTIPLE Dodgers players urinated into the pool, but I can’t tell you that with any certainty. It’s just what I’ve heard. What I can tell you is that it was only a handful of guys — maybe eight, give or take — who ran out and jumped into the pool. It would be presumptuous to assume that every one of them had the same thoughts running through his brain. Maybe there were some who really were just celebrating, nothing more. Maybe there were others who meant it as a direct slap in the face to the Diamondbacks.
