Dodgers celebrate winning NL West by jumping into the Diamondbacks' pool

Fair or foul: Should the Dodgers have celebrated their NL West title in the Diamondbacks' pool?

At Chase Field in Arizona, they have an extremely lovely pool over the outfield fence in right-center field.

Last night, the Los Angeles Dodgers clinched the NL West by beating the Arizona Diamondbacks, and celebrated the event by jumping into the pool and having themselves a nice little pool party.

This would have been well and good, had it been the Dodgers' pool, in the Dodgers' stadium.

However, this wasn't their pool. Most people don't celebrate their birthdays by having an impromptu pool party in their neighbor's pool.

The Diamondbacks are less than thrilled about it, and the team president and CEO issued a statement to that effect.

What do you think? Was this a classless move by the Dodgers? Or should the Diamondbacks just shake it off?

I read somewhere that the Diamondbacks organization asked the Dodgers not to celebrate on the field if they clinched the division. Why would they even do that? Plus didn't they jump in the pool when most of the stadium was empty? I don't think it was anything that bad...maybe the Diamondbacks should have won!!

Don't want another team to jump in your pool? Don't let them clinch in your stadium.

I wonder how much the chicken s**t actions of Ian Kennedy earlier in the year against the Dodgers made this possible?
Plus it's a pool, it's not holy water
