Dodgers party in the Chase Field pool, Willie Bloomquist is not happy about it

Sep 19, 2013, 8:18 PM EDT

After Dodgers defeated the Diamondbacks this afternoon to clinch the National League West title, they decided to jump into the pool at Chase Field as part of their postgame celebration. FOX Sports has the video footage, which you can watch below.

Looks like some good old-fashioned fun. Unless you are a member of those gritty Diamondbacks. Here’s what Willie Bloomquist had to say about the impromptu pool party.

Who knew that a pool in an MLB ballpark was such sacred ground? Perhaps Bloomquist is in charge of cleaning it. I’m pretty sure that is one of the responsibilities of being a utility player. Anyway, I guess we should prepare ourselves for the first pool-related retaliation in MLB history next season.

    clydeserra nailed it. Since when is a freaking swimming pool in a BASEBALL STADIUM a sacred place? It’s a stupid gimmick at best and only exists because Arizona as a state is miserably hot and dry and pathetic.

    Not too mention that Montero is still owed a high/inside pitch for his retarded antics earlier this year…

    Congrats Dodgers!

    I can see why he thinks it shows a lack of class. A lot of stadiums have some sort of unique element, usually beyond the outfield somewhere. It’s not your home stadium so celebrating anywhere but on the field or in your away team clubhouse at the stadium does show a lack of class. This is like climbing all over the tacky Vegas monstrosity in the Marlins stadium, or climbing up and riding the train at Minute Maid Park (did they get rid of that?), OR how about the Yankees Monument Park beyond the outfield wall. Hell, just the raised area of grass beyond center in St. Louis and KC. It does show poor judgement. I understand they were excited, but they are professionals. Take it to the clubhouse. It’s not your stadium.

    What’s classless is this bloomquist sissy crying about the Dodgers taking a dip. Whoever said that MLB ballplayers act like adults? I love seeing the Dodgers in the postseason and hope they win the World Series, it’s been too long since their last championship. Tommy Lasorda must be proud of this bunch.

    Go Dodgers!!!

      So, let me get this right: You’re calling Willie Bloomquist a “sissy” on an internet message board while using a fake name. Is that accurate?

    I can’t really seem to muster up any cares about this. However, I do kind of hope that Arizona clinches next year while in LA and someone brings out one of those plastic above ground kiddy pools, fills it with water and everyone dances around.

    A coach once said, “Hey, when you run the ball into the end zone, act like you’ve been there before.” That’s good advice for any player in any sport.

    If the Braves and Cardinals needed any more incentive to beat L.A., they’ve got it now.

    • kaeptaincrunch - Sep 20, 2013 at 9:36 AM

      “Hey! Those guys jumped into a pool, now we really have to beat them!” Really? If reaching the World Series isn’t already enough motivation, you shouldn’t be in the playoffs. Stop making a big deal out of nothing.

      • ctony1216 - Sep 20, 2013 at 10:17 AM

        You don’t rub another team’s nose in it after you’ve won. It’s an unwritten rule in competitive sports. This was was an a__hole thing to do. The Dodgers can act however they want to act. But if you disrespect your opponent, you become an __hole in the eyes of your fellow players. And if the Dodgers are OK with being considered the biggest a__holes in baseball, they can do whatever they want.

      • notsofast10 - Sep 20, 2013 at 11:43 AM

        Maybe, possibly, at least one, D Backs consider them a__ holes and that probably is not too much of a concern to the Dodgers. It definitely does not spill over to all of baseball.

      @ctony1216 – No surprise though, this organization won’t even help out Bryan Stowe and his family cover medical expenses…EVERY chance they get they sweep it under the rug…it’s the least they could do for a guy whose near fatal beating spurred the sale of the club to Kasten, Magic & Co. But they won’t…because classlessness trickles down through that organization. Braves, Cardinals, Pirates…whoever, do what’s right by the baseball gods knock them out. Go Orioles!

        ———————————————————————————————
        That is a bald faced, cowardly and slanderous LIE!! The Dodgers have done everything they could to help the Stowe family but did not post it to give themselves a public pat on the back.
        Perhaps classless trickles down your dad’s leg onto you!!

      • jimmydixx12 - Sep 20, 2013 at 12:19 PM

        @teambringitstrong – “The Dodgers have done everything they could to help the Stowe family but did not post it…” BS. How do you know then? Better yet, prove it – give me the link(s) to some stories backing that. Furthermore…the closest player/coach to Bryan Stowe has been Giants 3rd base coach Tim Flannery – he was quoted earlier this season saying that the Dodgers “have failed in the humanity department”. This is a guy who does MORE than the entire Dodgers organization to help support Stowe. I think a guy that close to the situation has a better grasp than you or I…so I’m going with him. Like I said, if you’ve got evidence backing you ignorant claim, direct me to it…browsing the internet routinely, I haven’t come across ANY “Dodgers helping out with Stow family” headlines.

        Your comment is a microcosm of the morally inept club you follow…In baseball, just like in life..it always comes around.

    My God give it a rest crybabies, the fans were gone, no harm done, should of won if you didn’t want that to happen,if I were a DBack fan II’d be mad about the fact we blew a 91/2 game lead not them swimming in some pool…lol

    • rasta028 - Sep 20, 2013 at 9:48 AM

      Thumbs down? Need tissue baby?

  8. chiadam - Sep 20, 2013 at 9:39 AM

    They probably peed in the pool.

  9. richarddansky - Sep 20, 2013 at 9:52 AM

    There are some razor clams that want to talk to you about class, Willie.

    As Roger Miller said:

    Well, ya can’t go a-swimmin’ in a baseball pool
    Ya can’t go swimmin’ in a baseball pool
    Ya can’t go swimmin’ in a baseball pool
    But you can be happy if you’ve a mind to

    The best team money can buy lacking class? go figure. Yankees would always get ridiculed for their spending, but when the Dodgers outspend everyone to buy a ring nothing is said. Classless organization from the top down to the overrated Puig.

    • ilovegspot - Sep 20, 2013 at 6:10 PM

      another jealous troll cry baby.

  12. jbriggs81 - Sep 20, 2013 at 1:16 PM

    Would it be OK if the Phillies had clinched the postseason and rode on the Mets Apple in the OF?

  13. losanginsight - Sep 20, 2013 at 1:41 PM

    The Dbags and their cry baby fans need to accept the fact that the team sucks. The only good player is Goldy. Kevin Towers doesn’t have a clue. In case you forgot he was the padres GM. Look at the pads now. Always next year and stop crying. All the dbag fans are rooting for the cards and braves to try beat LA since you can’t. Keep trying weaklings.
    Let’s Go Dodgers!!!

    Baseball is boring. This makes it somewhat entertaining.

  15. cavemanna - Sep 20, 2013 at 3:09 PM

    I just think its great that they clinched against AZ. With all the bad blood between them , taking a dip in there pool seems harmless and appropriate .the fact that the Diamondbacks tried to control how and where the Dodgers would celebrate says it all really . Did they also complain for spraying champagne all over the locker room floor?

  16. tastybasslines - Sep 20, 2013 at 3:36 PM

    I guarantee at least one Dodger urinated in the pool. Bet on it.

  17. sportsfanjay - Sep 20, 2013 at 5:49 PM

    Brandon McCarthy had the best comment of all…Thank You!
    1. It’s not like they went into the pool directly after the game. There was no one there except for the folks sweeping up popcorn.
    2. Don’t tell another team how to celebrate. The D-backs did this before the game. It’s human nature to do exactly what someone tells you NOT to do. (Who has kids that can confirm this?)
    3. AZ Central said Puig, “blew off a Diamondbacks legend”…Diamondbacks legend? I did not know such a thing existed. Puhleese.
    And I’m not a Dodger fan.
