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.
