Things Dibble and Carpenter Said Today

Considering I work from home (or WFH, if you speak industry jargon), I love me some day baseball. So it’s a happy day indeed as the Nats and Padres have a matinee this afternoon. Unfortunately, that also means I must suffer MASN’s broadcast duo of Bob Carpenter and Rob Dibble.


Let’s turn lemons into lemonade with a list of inanities and inaccuracies. I’ll keep updating it as long as I can, and please do share your own.


“I love to see guys like J.D. and Mock go seven or eight innings in their past four or five starts.” — Dibble (Fact: J.D. Martin has never pitched more than six innings in a Major League start. Nor has Garrett Mock.)


“What’d you think of my seamanship?” — Dibble

“You’re a salty dog.” — Carpenter


“Are those hands between some pillows … hey, how ’bout those Dodgers.” — Dibble, butchering lines from Planes, Trains & Automobiles


“Eckstein is gonna grind out an at-bat every time.” — Dibble  (Fact: David Eckstein ranks 110th in pitches/plate appearance. He’s also awful.)


“That guy can play second base for me anywhere … He’s a winner.” — Carpenter on Eckstein (This sparked a discussion on how good Eckstein is, how much harder he works than Adrian Gonzalez, etc. Classic stuff.)

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.
