Dibble's tenure with MASN over
MIAMI — Rob Dibble will no longer be broadcasting Nationals games on MASN, a club spokesman said this afternoon.
The former Reds reliever, who signed a three-year contract with MASN in 2009, has not called any games since last week, when comments he made on his Sirius XM radio show about Stephen Strasburg generated controversy. According to a MASN spokesman at the time, Dibble requested time off. He hasn't returned to the booth since, with Ray Knight filling as as analyst alongside play-by-play announcer Bob Carpenter.
The Nationals spokesman said the club wouldn't have any other comment on Dibble's permanent departure.
More to come...

If I'm not mistaken, Mark Zuckerman had it first. I did the honors on Wikipedia.
