Yasiel Puig is in the Diamondbacks' pool. Like you, when I read that, I figured there was a pop-up to shallow left and he got carried away. But no, the Dodgers clinched the NL West on Thursday, and several Dodgers figured it was a good idea to climb the fence and hop in the pool.

Well. This does not please the gritty and scrappy among us:
Bloomquist on #Dodgers pool celebration: "They have a lot of veteran players on their team. I thought they had more class than that."— Tyler Emerick (@TylerEmerick) September 19, 2013
But the Diamondbacks should hold off on the outrage. The Dodgers aren't shaming them, per se. They've had celebrations planned out at all 30 ballparks, just in case.
Toronto - Break into Rogers Centre Hotel, start throwing furniture out window
San Diego - Climb Western Metal Supply building like King Kong, start throwing western metal off the roof
Tampa Bay - Balloons filled with urine off the catwalks
Milwaukee - Rip head off Bernie Brewer, slide down without pants
Detroit - Drive that stupid truck onto the field and do donuts until a SWAT team comes
Houston - Drive that stupid train onto the field and do donuts until a SWAT team comes
Washington - Find single identifying feature of ballpark, do something to it
Good work, Dodgers. Now, computer, get DaveChappelleYasielPuigfuckyourpool.gif.

Man, I thought this was the future.
