Rob Dibble Fired As Nationals Announcer

After just about a week of speculation about his future, we now know for sure. Rob Dibble has been fired, and will no longer be a part of the Nationals broadcast on MASN, according to Adam Kilgore.

In the wake of controversial comments Rob Dibble made about Stephen Strasburg, the Nationals announced today Dibble will no longer broadcast their games. The separation will be permanent. The Nationals offered no further comment on the matter.

This was only a matter of time, right? He's had so many missteps in his time in the booth, but his last comments regarding the franchise's golden goose were probably the final nail in the coffin.

Kilgore is reporting that there is no word on who will replace Dibble in the booth, but that Ray Knight will at least finish out the current road trip.
