Former Washington Nationals TV announcer Rob Dibble made a spirited appearance on 106.7 The Fan Friday afternoon.
Dibble was asked to join LaVar Arrington and Chad Dukes to discuss the innings limit being imposed on Stephen Strasburg.
However, things got heated less than one minute into the interview when the former Major League pitcher felt he was under attack.
LaVar and Dukes, who said they were not attacking Dibble, were caught off-guard by his sudden hostility.
Dibble was recently critical of Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo’s decision to stick to the limit imposed on the young fireballer. When asked about his comments Dibble got defensive.
“I didn’t call in to defend what I say on my own radio show,” Dibble said. “If that’s why you have me on then you’re barking up the wrong tree.”
It was downhill from there and by the 7-minute mark Dibble abruptly hung up on the show.
