07:20 AM ET 09.20 | Celebrating on an opponent's home turf is one thing, but their pool? [When] a contingent of Los Angeles Dodgers, including veterans such as Skip Schumaker, Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford, moved the celebration of their National League West-clinching 7-6 victory over the Diamondbacks on Thursday from the field to the pool, the vanquished home team was not happy. ... "I could call it disrespectful and classless," Diamondbacks President and CEO Derrick Hall said via email, "but they don't have a beautiful pool at their old park and must have really wanted to see what one was like." To Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, who did not pitch in the four-game series as the team sought to give him more rest, understands how the pool-jumping could be perceived. But he thinks it's being misinterpreted as slight.

The **** dodgers are scum anyway.

The proper way to voice displeasure is to throw beanballs and clear the benches. Whoops, too bad they don't play them again until next year

This was pretty lame, but pretty much in keeping with the Dodgers being a collection of jerks.

Most prisons lack pools. It's the bane of the Dodgers, and in a much more pronounced way, their fanbase.

I don't see a problem with it. It's part of winning the division..... D-Backs had their shot, blew it, now man up...... bunch of prissies.....
