Nats announcer Dibble requested time off
Washington Nationals announcer Rob Dibble will take some time off two days after making comments critical of rookie pitcher Stephen Strasburg.
MASN spokesman Todd Webster said Dibble would not work Wednesday night's game against the Chicago Cubs and is ''taking a few days off.'' Webster said Dibble requested the time off but did not say whether the absence was related to the comments about Strasburg.
Dibble on Monday lashed out at the young pitcher, who has been placed on the disabled list twice in the last month. Dibble said on Sirius XM Radio that ''You can't have the cavalry come in and save your butt every time you feel a little stiff shoulder, sore elbow.''

Remember the last time a loud-mouth no-talent jackass from Cincinnati decided to make scarce from this franchise? When Dibble "resigns" do you think he'll blame the media? Either way, Zuckerman might have to update that list of the best days in franchise history:
