The great dodgers-Diamondbacks pool controversy entered its second day Friday. The short version: The D-backs are still steamed.

Arizona managing partner Ken Kendrick blasted the Dodgers for celebrating their NL West championship in the outfield swimming pool at Chase Field. Kendrick called out LA management for claiming there was misunderstanding about whether the players could be on the field after they retired to the clubhouse.

"We asked that they not return to the field from the clubhouse after their celebration so that we could clear the stands. We didn't want their fans hanging around long after the game," Kendrick told Fox Sports Arizona in a text message.

"That plan was discussed with their GM (Ned Colletti) at the beginning of the series, and he agreed. Only the Dodgers would blame us for their lack of class."

While Kendrick was taking his shots, the obligatory Twitter back-and-forth between partisans raged on.

U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., called the Dodgers "spoiled brats," among other unpleasant things. New Dodgers reliever Brian Wilson then jabbed at McCain for losing the 2008 presidential election to Barack Obama.

Senator McComplain knows a thing or two about coming in second and watching someone take a plunge in the pool (I mean poll) #POoLITICS
