John McCain tweets ire at Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers’
NL
West-clinching celebration
on Thursday in the Arizona
Diamondbacks’ swimming pool at Chase Field seems to have sent Sen.
John McCain off the deep end.

At least one Dodgers player took the bait and fired back.
Pitcher Brian Wilson had this to say in rebuttal later Friday:

McCain didn’t back down from the comment and as of Friday night
hadn’t deleted the tweet. His only communication since described a
leisurely afternoon to which we can all relate:

McCain wasn’t the only one infuriated as the home team didn’t
appreciate the Dodgers’ party, either.

“I doubt the New York Yankees would do something like that. They
clinched the division this year, so if that’s how
they’re going to act and be classless, that’s their
clubhouse,” infielder
Willie
Bloomquist told reporters
.

Not everyone was bent out of shape. Pitcher Brandon McCarthy
kept a level head on Twitter:

Reports had indicated the Diamondbacks had asked the Dodgers to
please refrain from celebrating on the field, a request that in
hindsight may have backfired. Diamondbacks managing partner Ken
Kendrick said Friday the request was
a little more nuanced on that.
