Rob Dibble talks about firing and actually sounds reasonable

Sep 2, 2010, 4:26 PM EDT

While doing his radio show on Sirius/XM today Rob Dibble spoke briefly about being fired as the Nationals’ television analyst yesterday.
I’m just about Dibbled out at this point, but after criticizing him quite a bit it only seems right to also post his comments.
Plus, they were are actually surprisingly level-headed and sensible:

As you may know, I made some statements last week about Stephen Strasburg, and have been called controversial and angered many. In my role as analyst for the Nationals, and [with] the benefit of 20-20 hindsight, I now realize that my comments were inappropriate and disrespectful. I have regret that my time with the team will have to end this way, but have learned from the mistake and look forward to putting it behind me.

I’m sure that doesn’t even begin to express his true feelings about the situation, but good for Dibble for not going on the offensive like he did when the initial wave of criticism hit.

    I will undoubtedly grow fond of these events as time passes and as the meaning of the word Dibble loses it’s relevance and meaning in our collective baseball hearts. I pour a little of the proverbial Olde English on the curbside and think of my newly lost homeslice, Rob “Balls Dibblin” Dibble. Peace, my friend, and if all is right in the world you will get your time again to spew your magic for all to once again behold in all of its grandeur.

    Reeks of PR handling.

    Matt your right on. That was a Dibble-originated statement and the president of Iran and the prime minister of Israel will be dancing together naked in a field. Its doubtful that Dibble can even put a complete sentence together. I hate blowhards and he’s a class A blowhard.
