Rob Dibble

Rob Dibble, The Washington Nationals today announced that Rob Dibble was no longer part of the team to announce the club. The Nationals did not offer further comment and did not name a permanent replacement.

Dibble national emissions originally started on August 25 after questioning Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg willingness to throw through the pain. The timing could not be worse for Dibble, as Strasbourg was ruled out for season by team doctors for a pitching arm injury shortly after the comments theanlyst.

At the time of leave of absence Dibble show, the club president Stan Kasten said, “Rob asked for some free time. It may not feel well. But I’m not a doctor, nor have I seen their records. So I should not say anything more about it. ”

Kasten comment was reportedly shot in the evening Dibble for his criticism of Strasbourg.

The former major leaguer Ray Knight has been filling in, as ananlyst for national television transmissions from the initial starting MASNA Dibble, but the club has not made clear if Knight’s position is permanent.

Dibble original criticism of Strasbourg was the radio show of former Reds pitcher on 23 August. During the show, Dibble questioned Strasbourg to leave a game against Philadelphia two nights earlier:

“For me, a little has to be put back in Strasbourg here. OK, a field goal, his arm hurts, and immediately calls the manager and coach? Hold on, boy. This is his profession. You chose to be a baseball player. You cannot have the cavalry come and save your ass every time you feel a little stiff shoulder, elbow pain. ”

Shortly after the comments Dibble, MRI results revealed that the Strasbourg pitching arm had suffered a torn collateral ulnar ligament in his right elbow. Strasbourg is now facing Tommy John surgery and rehabilitation that could last up to 18 months.

The irony about criticism Dibble and shoot later is that he, as Strasbourg, was once a power pitcher in the major leagues who later suffered catastrophic problems arm. If anyone knew how far he could push a pitcher, you’d think it would Dibble.

One could also argue that the injury Strasbourg after Dibble criticism was more a coincidence than anything else, but apparently when the two events was too much for the national management to accept. And Dibble has reportedly already exhausted his welcome to the club by other rackets in the air.
