Dodgers celebrate NL West title in the Chase Field pool, get called ‘classless’ by Diamondbacks player

Big League Stew

The Arizona Diamondbacks asked the Los Angeles Dodgers not to celebrate winning the NL West on their field. So the Dodgers, after beating the D-backs 7-6 on Thursday for their first division title since 2009, went somewhere else to celebrate. The pool at Chase Field.

A pack of Dodgers — Matt Kemp, Hanley Ramirez, Yasiel Puig, Juan Uribe, Skip Schumaker, Adrian Gonzalez, Kenley Jansen and Michael Young, among them — dashed out to the pool after the win, splashing around like Little Leaguers after a pizza party.

These two teams, of course, have history. You can be sure that brawl from June hasn't been forgotten by either club. And this little jaunt to the pool? How will it go over? Kirk Gibson didn't come out with a pool noodle and a water gun to join the fun, if that's what you're wondering.

In fact, it sounds like D-backs players, fans and even the local media weren't too happy about how the Dodgers decided to celebrate.

D-backs pitcher Brandon McCarthy, however, put this spin on the Dodgers celebration.

The swimming Dodgers, meanwhile, didn't look like they were caring at all about what people would think. Is that Yasiel Puig below about to fall face-first into the water? He doesn't seem too worried about hurting himself, let alone hurting anybody in Phoenix's feelings.
