"So maybe, like most of these guys during the quarantine have been working out of the sand hasn't been, But I have to give you the Gabe Kapler, who is tthe E Giantsmanager now has had no idea gave Catherine was the child games there. He gave an interesting quotes on Pablo. Pablo's role on this team is to do what he has done over the course of the last couple of couple of days and what he has done for this city in this community in the past, and this is to bring positive energy, get big hits, drive the baseball and those are still the things we believe he's capable of doing already. In the short period of time, he's demonstrated it. I have a lot of empathy for Pablo and what it must be like to be dealing with this sort of scrutiny. And I wouldn't wish that on anybody agreed, agreed gave. Listen, I love Pablo Sandoval. He is a He's a great guy. He is always fun in the clubhouse. I have no problems with that. You just have to admit, When you look at this photo you have to wonder. Is he really capable of bringing that question is I'm looking at it. Their shadows playing games with us are their shadow games happening in this situation. Is it the angle of the sun striking down upon the body off him? Maybe playing optical trips tricks on us. I don't think so. Jeff, Listen, I don't think this picture has been doctored in sort of way. Even if the shadows are playing tricks on us. It is impossible to play tricks on us like this. You know, this is not April Fool's Day. Here you're finally here. He's demonstrated. He's healthy, and that's the most important thing. He's not going to bet. Leadoff for us the expectation with Pablo Sandoval is he slugs. He drives the baseball. He's a good D H candidate for us. He's got nice, soft hands and all of those things that president camp make him think that we're going to be focusing on some Gabe Kapler wants to. Ah know that nobody here should be body shaming. We're not doing that. We're just enjoying a photo that I actually was smitten with all again. There's no body shaming. It's got nothing to do with it. He's been big. He has been big. I am sure he's dealt with this for an extended period of his lifetime. He just gotten bigger or is not a complimentary too. Term for anybody. The A panda. Just kind of roly Poley s to begin with or that you didn't. So you know what? When you get the nickname of that that's already you know, kind of assuming that you might be a little bit bigger when they nicknamed the fridge. The refrigerator. It wasn't because he was a small is a refrigerator. It was because he was his big over as a refrigerator. So you don't go around saying one day, I hope they call me the kungfu paying. No, you never do that. That's not the position A by any stretch of the imagination. That's a fair point, Jericho just to notice that, you know, to note that I think is very important. Every time you bring up the fridge and his girth, I still think about that sweetness just scored in that in that Super Bowl. So you know somebody else mentioned it to me on the golf course. Yeah. I mean, I just Said Sweetness. Didn't I just said Let's see they won the Super Bowl. It's funny. You guys bring this up Merck. Your Philip scored because, right? Well, that was intercept. That was it was interception terms. You should have stopped and got Walter in the field of pitches and let Walter running, so I watched recently within the last Two weeks. The Walter Payne NFL life because a lot of times my kids, actually my daughter was the one she was like, I was way had an hour to go on our before. Bedtime is like what you guys want to watch. Usually my son Alex will be like Let's watch football life. 1 60 minutes. Eyes your daughter at last night. Is your daughter Peyton named after Walter. She's not after Walter Payton. But she it is spelled P a Y T O N because my wife likes the name Peyton. And she said, What do you think about it? I said, I like the name I said The only thing I'll request is that way. Why? Because I want if anyone asks, I'm a bears fan. I'd rather be named, You know, after Walter Payton that way, as opposed to Peyton, the man who beat them in the Super Bowl, Manny why exactly? So I said that That really is my only request. I like named Peyton. That works. Okay, but So my daughter was like, Let's watch football life, So we're like, all right, let's watch football if they spent a lot of time of a football life on the fact that Walter Payton did not score a touchdown in the Super Bowl to the point where my son was wondering, you know what was wrong with my dick like it was like some sort of an absolute travesty. And look, I think we all agree. We wish that Walter would have scored in the Super Bowl. But I think way too much is made about that because of his illustrious career, like in no way should that have defined also his reaction. Of course, Hanae Valdiserri had go pull him out of the closet yet. This is true. Absolutely. I think that's It was not only that, but it was the way he reacted, but also But, you know, I'm just saying there was like oven our oven. Our documentary 15 minutes were spent in the fact that Walter Payton didn't score a touchdown into me. 1/4 of it. That's too much when you consider what Walter Payton did in his career. And McMahon had himself a touchdown. So we have a touchdown to mad, so he had himself a touch down. There are a lot of touchdowns to go around. Fridge had one. Unfortunately, Walter did not get it. Alright. We just insulted the Super Bowl for me doesn't stop that Minnesota game for being as great as that Minnesota get it, and it doesn't end that wonderful can city run that he had that he bounced off about 10 people. Absolutely doesn't sully the reputation of pain in me. It doesn't diminish his career in any way for me as well. He's your uncle. I'm Jeff Miller. And for Carmen today, coming up next we checked in with Jessi earlier about the Cubs..

"Meetings as well as our major league coaches were building communication with our minor league coaches for the zoom calls. That we haven't another time in history where we've been able to see these things play out because we just haven't had the time in the day the what's happened. John is the relationships are being built between our miley getting coaches in our major league getting coaches and Antoine. Richardson are outfield. Base running coach is facilitating these zoom calls. So that our outfielders in the minor league and at the major league level. So if you can if you can picture under bishop and you Stransky on these calls with all of our minor league coaches and Major League outfielder outfield base running coaches all having conversations about first step quickness and about winning the first three steps. You can see that we're collaborating as an organization right now using these technologies that that you reference so that's the main part of my day and and a part of my day that I'm most proud of is participating in and and helping facilitating facilitate some of these calls utilizing technology. Well what a great opportunity and experience for these younger guys to actually be on the call with the bigly coaches and the big league players very very cool opportunity it and like I said kind of unprecedented. I think as a farm director when I played that role and then as a major league staff number you always dream about connecting minor league and Major League coaches and players alike because minor league players get so much out of hearing major league players talk and seeing them face to face. But you never have the bandwidth to make it happen and we really see this as competitive window for us to be better than than other organizations out this and you know. I. I don't mean mean mean to say that other organizations are doing. The same thing I would say is is that we're.

"A couple of people around the organization who play. We talked about doing some jam sessions together. One of them is a are are traveling secretary or our travel lead in. I might get together and play music together. I remember back to being in Tampa Bay as a player Longoria myself. Fernando Perez other players who played instruments or get into jam session regular basis We'd have a play set up where we could go play. Rocco Ball Deli was involved in that as well So I think it's a really good way to stay connected. Play music together songs. Wanted to make sure that I have my base boy. That's beautiful sounds like a great zoom opportunity these days but I think you're using probably for other reasons. That's about my family. I can relate you have an eighteen year old. I have a seventeen year old. Who's using zoom every day in school? Which is a great thing for these kids? It's a classroom setting and it's a lecture. It's a class participation. It's as if you're there and it's a really cool thing. I myself spend Easter on zoom. Usually I get together with the family but wasn't to happen this time. Anyway what could I could ask. What a typical day is for you. You know from communicating with your staff and players and front office to even do in the personal things like like eating or cooking or working out under You know obviously you have to prepare for a season that may or may not come but the communication factor I imagine is paramount. And what's Your Day like in these times? A great a great question and you mentioned you mentioned zoo. I think we're lucky that we're sheltering in place in a time where we can use various.

"Public apology today from your friend Gabe Kapler are you do not deserve one no I feel pretty good about what you had done you kind of got yesterday while you were hinting at or or not more than it yeah we were staying loudly last you in that it was you know Jeter's fault what happened I mean Jesus made it but I don't think you're gonna get a public apology and I will say the rest of with cigarette that was I thought fascinating because I think all we wanted and you want to forget capital with accountability for for security there because obviously the loss of a great player McCutchen I think that happened a minute whether or not it because the captain I don't think so I think it's just he may got hurt it clearly affected gene the girl which I think was with kind of what we're wondering he cared he care what he did and I began to study that all right well that's all well and good but I want to get back to my apologies all right because he has the problem the man said this last year you're telling me you shouldn't be apologize it wasn't worth all the that it is it's absolutely irresponsible that's my reputation play with Geely all what you wanted like if you were right and somebody called you irresponsible you would expect them to clear the record with an apology would you not I would be upset but I I don't believe I I very rarely believe in an apology phone or talk radio we fail we stay we move on and we don't usually apologize for that I'm going to turn the key challenge here is far more of a professional than any of us Jody is jail we are right here now if you have the dot you have a do you have what's your name the Oscar is your desk asked who makes more sense right now you Oscar or Geely Oscar Oscar the big brain dump blading jackass that still yeah I can't believe I anyway I cannot get away with this guy do you at all feel stupid now that you supported this moron no not at all okay that was a good manager is going to be one for a long time and I I could see right here's what I can tell so that that it come out I think it loudly and then in between the lines as well I think last year that disconnect between the coaching staff I don't know if it was a Catholic mostly pitching coach and and the pictures there they have not been shy about it like work with Brian who brought those those coaches in I will gave a contact and then it kept a meticulous training out yeah they kept on that's that's games problem he fought for them hard because you know every time they went Adam about it he vociferously defended both of those guys who were not very good at that no no no that's right the biggest fault we had last year was putting a coach that players that he did not like we don't work out with Joe what will you miss most about Gabe what what was soul captivating about him to you all the press conferences come I gave him a job even for after the game so that that that's stuck with it but what I think most press conferences in baseball because there's so many that every single day they're boring remember not at the very same thing every day they rarely anything that gets people care about but but obviously people reacted to Gabe Kapler whatever you tell you wanted to add things to make fun of them about yes I think I think we could have reacted yes my woman are you come on board you did support I'm not right next week in this slot we are going to book Oscar real we're going to get Oscar odd to see if he's doing a better job to Geely absolved her have a cellphone number it's getting one Joe let me move out a couple of days ago and I'm Matt Breen on this show yeah say covers the Phillies for the Inquirer dot com said their fourth place team you agree with them yeah I I do right now and they they look like the fourth best even the other way so I will say that the gap between first and fourth is I believe less than it was at the end of last season here the graves lost Josh Donaldson which is a gigantic what they get bad good players a lot Donald than the national law that he rent own who's really irreplaceable for them then that's what that Wheeler to the Philly we even other GM and went back and forth about that his ability and all that he's a good pitcher so if you think the police have closed the gap a little bit right now if you had to line up yeah I would say the fourth best team in the division all right if that's true it's the last year for both macphail and Klentak you agree with that yes well I mean just think about the the the way the Phillies have gone about their business but you may have they've really put it on to where they the way we talked last weekend so we drove me crazy both excel and click that they're really double down on the idea that last year the failures they had they believe they built a good team and I had some bad luck you know injury locked out of the bullpen McCutchen and and just things didn't go their way that is that the way they view their team so they really didn't do much to change the team you know we always a good picture depicted shortstop that's really the significant changes so yeah if I'm the owner and then the GM GM of the present are saying we built a good team we had bad luck with bringing back that same good team this time it'll be different if it's not then then I have to make a change it's going to be very interesting because I agree with you they made it sound like they've done an amazing job for four years and they are one bad streak away from B. and go on let's move on to our what's going on in baseball in general and the Astros right now I know if you heard the commissioner a more obnoxious you're out here I think I lay come less than Roger Goodell yeah what a dismissive arrogant man you're one of the things he said about why he will not stripped the title from the twenty seventeen Astros is that it would be futile I listen to this the idea of you know an asterisk or asking for a piece of metal back scenes you know sort of a feudal act people are always know that there was something about the twenty seventeen World Series that was different and they're gonna know that because whether we made every decision right or wrong we undertook a really thorough investigation and we had the intestinal fortitude to put out there.

"You need a closer or are you. Open to rotating that position or even used in your best best reliever in a higher leverage seventh or eighth inning situation where we'd see a stereotypical closer into twenty twenty twenty things a little too early to tell John I mean I think we want to see see what our our roster looks like heading into spring training. I think we've got a lot of possibilities right now. For the sixth through the ninth and we'll look to be creative to to find the best fits for each situation now do von seems to be a a real wildcard linear. He was really impressive. toward the end of last season at Ed both short and second but he so athletic he could do a lot of things that I was the outfield particular Centerfield do see him roaming around the diamond or is he the in the mix at second base with the Solano and the newcomer Gilmer Sanchez. We see it as we see opportunities for playing time as as merit based so We see Yohmor and we see DEVAN. We see Solano. No no as competing for playing time. We see some openings in the outfield and so for that reason we're excited about let's see what do bond can do in the outfield as well and these are conversations that we'll continue to have with with all players. Are you looking For the second baseman to be more defensive minded or more hitting minded because Sanchez comes as a raining. Gold Glover From the white sox where he was wonderful on defense but maybe provide the pop that you might be looking for with this lineup. We're excited about Sanchez's Sanchez's Defense contributions and he's also put in quite a bit of time with with Justin belief. One of our major league coaches Spent a good deal of time with him. This past offseason working through swing adjustments Those swing adjustments Yohmor has been pretty committed to and we're excited to see what those changes producing spring training and in the regular season. Speaking of the new coaches have they at all met with or at least spoken with all the veterans. Including you know buster Posey in Crawford and belt and Longoria. Here's been a lot of work done so far John so Longoria and Crawford both have spent time with our hitting roof in the cage in Scottsdale Buster and some Marjo have both been here in San Francisco had an opportunity to talk to both of those guys. They're both working really hard into to put their bodies and their minds in the right position to have success in in twenty twenty But all of our coaches are making consistent contact with with our players That's that's true for me as well. Some really good conversations with with our players already. Pablo Sandoval is a giant again. Yes or at least he will be resuming. His Rehab with the giants opening day. Seems Unlikely I don't know maybe I'm wrong. But he's A. He's a bit ahead of schedule. But I think opening day is is certainly certainly ambitious given the circumstances right you met with him in Miami off season did that Lead to the signing here or was that the introductory Conversation you had and would you expect from him. It wasn't for sure that he was gonna be back but he does as Bruce Bochy said many times provide a lot of personality in leadership and Enjoy those sure so Collaboration always leads to the signing of players As far as Pablo's lows impact on on the clubhouse I don't think it can be discounted. It's a it's a big thing. He's he keeps the mood life. He knows how to to inspire his teammates and have been example of that. When I went out to Miami and I sat down with Suarez Anderson and Pablo Pablo double had a a really mature perspective on how to handle that conversation he knew when the right time was for to take control of the conversation but he also also knew when to tee up Anderson and Suarez so that I was able to get to know the three of them together at the same time? He's just he's a mature but also very lighthearted joy filled athlete. And then I'll say this as when we came in with the phillies Pablo. Oh was dangerous coming off the bench swing and a good bat and he. We always had to account for the possibility that he was gonNA come up in a big situation and and we knew that he was going to be a grind of a plate appearance. And so yeah I mean He. He had a good year last year with the BAT. And I'm excited for for him. When he's fully healthy he would that be made with Epi June July? Would that be August. Do we know. I don't think we have an exact timeline yet I've I've seen videos of Pablo. He's he shares awesome and he's excited about his progress so he's throwing fairly aggressively at this point And obviously he shared some videos. Swing swing looks good. Looks in good shape. You mentioned Anderson is one of the three met in Miami. Which Anderson was the Sean John Anderson? Okay in Tyler will be ready for the season. I don't know exactly where he is in his time. Line right now but I can get that information for you okay. Anybody else Smiley anybody else. Who is questionable? annable for opening day smiley healthy okay. Yeah we're we're good to go there. Okay Okay and Darren rough another newcomer. Who spent the last last three years in Korea? Yeah hit some home runs. Eighty plus I don't know if that's the level of AAA or what but eighty five home runs. Eighty five home runs. Let's first baseman slash corner. After would you see of him. You nailed it on heat. So in in Korea the numbers he put up. Were really impressive. I I think three years in a row were was nine hundred opie s and I think at least one of those years was over thousands so he was able to to do two things. He's very well that we value number one hit for power number to get on base so and Darren we had some exposure to Darren when I was in player player development with the dodgers many years ago And Look I mean I'm not sure how much of the performance from Korea the last couple of years translates it's two major league baseball but they're certainly reason for optimism. Where's this going to get? Its power This is a tougher ballpark park to hit them. Most if not all and the numbers on the offensive side last few years haven't been impressive on the power side with. Where are you going to get your our our job as a major league? Coaching staff is to take the pieces that we have in this room. The athletes that we that we have in this room in on our roster right now and try try to turn the dial up just a little bit We are a player. Development Focused Major League coaching staff. So one way for us to to get a two to power in our lineup is to improve swings improve swing decisions And continue can you to to make adjustments to get the most out of our our very talented athletes. I think there's another level in another gear in some some of our veteran players. And I think that we're GONNA do everything necessary to develop the the young players that are still coming into their own and I think in Strips Ubon Jalen Davis dickerson. Like these are slater. All of these guys have have some pretty high ceilings. Yes you have a relationship with Kevin Pillar. Yeah we We both come from the same part of California. Yeah Yeah we've stayed in touch over the years. Now he's a free agent yes Farhan told me that before spring training. He's expecting one or two more outfielders in the mix to bring in church and I'm wondering if You might shed any light on whether he would be somebody you'd like to pursue or have I know this. Isn't you know party. Part of your Gig you manage. The team brings the players in but with no and your relationship with other players who have come in. Let me drop that name. Yes so I I'd say I respect the work and the job that far on and Scott hairs are are. GM have to do which which is to decide on on what the roster is going to look like and it's my job to be a thought partner with them on those decisions but then also to I fully support and and get the most out of the players that come into the clubhouse in our on our major league roster rather than speaking to individuals I can speak to characteristics heuristic value I value and respect hard play gritty play Fiery play guys that are tough and that are gonNA scratch and claw in grind for every possible advantage so rather than speak to anyone individuals individual. I can tell you that the character characteristics value. Are Those understood. Some of the characteristics centered on. Roy Does maybe the last thing would be. What could you tell giant Ryan fans about the twenty twenty giants that would make them encouraged after three straight losing seasons here? Yeah I think the thing that comes to mind immediately is when teams get on their charters to fly back to their home cities after playing three game series in San Francisco Cisco we expect for them to be exhausted because of our grind our hustle our determination and our fight. So I think that's brand of baseball. That giants fans can get on board with and one that our clubhouse our players our staff will be proud to play and I think that's an that's an entertaining brand of major league baseball.

"Covers talked about the fact that he and his ex wife had a domestic violence charitable foundation. Because she herself had been the victim of domestic violence wanted a previous relationship He has suggested in places where the things he'd learned from that organization. He sort of tried to apply. I think in this instance things like mediation and things like that when it was you know equitable situations. Obviously so I think he said well some of this was was trying to come from a good place and try to handle things in a good way and it was the wrong thing to do but it wasn't done maliciously or with criminal intent to where it was it was trying you to help things. It didn't right backfired and I think a sampled the former as outfielder Who somebody that I covered and respect a lot is very close friends with Kappler and he said the fact that this incident happened at all? Not The fact that it's been publicized that it's been a problem for him but the fact that this incident happened and and was And Kappler feels like he did mishandle at has really kind of crushed him and been very difficult for him because he has had that background with domestic violence advocates at advocating for victims of domestic violence rape. But but again I find it odd that if you have that in your background and you've have those connections In your faced in a decision making capability with how do you handle it. What's the right thing to do? You don't turn to those resources instead you go out over your skis as he said it and try to do it on your own instead of knowing that there is a huge network I mean I've had this this issue with other sports franchises including the forty niners about not tapping into these resources. That are are available and WanNa help in wanted WANNA guide organizations through this this messy ugly situation So it just seems odd that he had that background and yet didn't tap back into it sometimes. A little knowledge is actually a dangerous thing. I think I've familiar with domestic situations. I know you know. This woman. Allegedly had had been assaulted by two women and physically And I think he was thinking. Well this is Domestic violence situation oldest step in and handle this and obviously it was not turned out later. She you know there were accusations of sexual assault and Yeah it was I. It was not his place to to do that when I talked to a realized I talked to him and asked asked him. Do you have a daughter because I mean I have a daughter and I can't imagine suggesting that a teenage girl sit down with two men who were There when she was is being assaulted and videotape and videos. I mean diligent. Yeah so I mean I mean the whole thing is is messy and ugly and And sample may be right. It may have tortured him. But it only came to stick came to light in February right And we know how it came delight. Obviously there was a disgruntled former employee. Who who made sure people knew about this but be that as it may the fact that these Kappler admits that these two incidents happened in in his unhappy about the way he handled them in? So I don't know you know. He was a candidate for the dodgers job. I don't know this handling handling with disgust. Obviously that's the same as Asian. I don't know if it ever came up when he was a candidate for the phillies job. And and then it came out in February. And now you you know so. It's it's relatively fresh. which is one of the reasons? It's being rehashed Even though these things happen for years ago they've only been known about since you know in the last last seven months. Well it was a very strange strange strange press opening press conference he no. There's very few as you mentioned. There's only thirty of these jobs The giants have had had so few of them. The these openings come up and then you spend the majority of the press conference talking about this. This topic is very very strange. I talked talked to numerous former teammates. Kappler's people who know him pretty well Today and Two guys declined to talk not not out of from from my. You know just didn't have time but everyone else that I spoke to was incredibly enthusiastic. The level of passion a little commitment. The you know how knowledgeable and Quick he has to learn. What do you think just in terms of him? Put this incident the side and the way he handled it and potentially decision making with with that with do you think of him sheerly as a potential manager. Well I mean that we don't know from one we don't know because we don't know what decisions he'll be making right. I mean that's the big thing I mean he's going to be. You did ask that. He's he's not really beat around the Bush you basically ask. Are you going to be a puppet. I think I might have but so obviously obviously far on his controlling the roster The new guy the new general general manager might be making out the lineup. I mean what. So he's GonNa be taught you know dealing with the clubhouse dealing with the chemistry and it was interesting hearing him. Talk about Changing the culture and getting being the culture right and looking behind me at buster Posey who kind of had this bemused look on his face and I just wanted to know what was going through. His head is like you know like I've been here. Well well we had a pretty good culture. It's kind of all about having really good players right so I mean I know that with the phillies did a lot of unconventional things. People blame him for sure Some things that went wrong including Cousins injury which is too bad I know that You know they. They are considered to have underachieved And they tailed off badly at the end of both seasons which to me is always a bad sign about how eighteen is connecting and and how cohesive it is I I don't think the giants are going to be very good next year and so it's one thing to not be very good under Bruce Bochy. It's another thing to not be very good under Gabe Kaplan and I don't know how you know ardy swaths of empty seats for the last two years. I just don't know I don't on how it's GonNa how it's going to go over. Yeah and I wonder how long the leashes you know that they if they aren't going to be very good which they probably shouldn't be like. What are the expectations for him? Realistically now he did say he was going to rely on. Buster Posey A lot. He's talked to Bruce Bochy. I think he feels like he can go. Bruce Bocce with the questions and has had an has house them for him. He's got run motus he's got Ron Modus back. Which makes you know makes fans feel good of a million face? I think we were all in favor of that So but it is going to be interesting He is a polarizing figure. There's no doubt about that. And he always has been he's always been sort of people either love him or they can't stand. I'm Kinda Guy I ask Sam fold about that and Sam said that's his because he's got such a big strong personality opinionated he's not afraid to state his opinions ends but he also listens like he will. You can talk him out of a position if you give him the facts and and you convince him You know he's not. He's not a dummy that's for sure but now does have a big strong right. Now any any comes with words I mean from his detractors call him narcissistic and arrogant Polarizing so so. It's just interesting because those are not words that have been associated with the person who has held this position right in the past down. This is not the I mean yes. It's one thirty jobs but just because it's the giants and they haven't had any that many over the last thirty five years it's not like is not becoming the pope or something thank you smoke. I saw smoking no baseball. It is but it is one with a pretty strong lineage H. and and the and the truth is Now no offense to buster but I mean because far haunt you know is a pretty low key keith guy. Because Larry Baird's now in a much reduced position on Cape Kepler's can be the face of the team and a high. I don't know how that goes over either. You know I mean I mean there is no I mean Bruce Bocce Gut Gut Kinda lucky because even though people aren't super excited when he first got here. Timmy had already you kind of become the face of the team So you know there was there. I don't know it's just. It's a whole different era. Yeah well it's GonNa be interesting to to gauge on my behalf for from far from the other side. This hour Bob. Melvin is now the height of stability yet longest serving manager right right now so that keeps going all right and Killian.

"gabe kapler" Discussed on Giants Splash
"Welcome to the San Francisco. Chronicle's giants splash. PODCAST I'm your host for once not Henry Shulman it's me Susan's lesser Filling in while Henry is a much deserved vacation in well. John Shea is at the baseball General Manager meetings in Scottsdale and killing and I covered the Gabe Kappler press conference the introduction of the new giants manager a which was certainly an unusual press conference and you and I have attended many oppressor introducing a manager or a new player in new executive and this one Before you're GonNa Questions were even asked journal Manage Team President Farm on safety Address the allegations of dodgers players assault against an underage girl and also another woman That occurred while he and gave copper. We're both with the dodgers. Kappler was in charge of the the dodgers minor league system. At the time you have written about this topic COUPLE OF TIMES A. You're obviously writing about it again. And you asked asked numerous questions during the press conference about it What's your takeaway from the way the giants handle this today? And how surprised were you first with the press conference and and really just with the with the hiring altogether given this what we know about these incidents. Well I I gotta say. I'm a little surprised at the higher We've been hearing Gabe Kaplan. It was named for weeks now as soon as he got fired from the phillies even maybe even before he got fired when his his fate was kinda hanging in the balance because everyone knew he had a relationship ship with far Han but because these allegations which surfaced last February even they took place in two thousand fifteen but they really came to light late last February in a couple of different national publications and We you know I think given the difficulties. The giants silence have had with not only their on field performance but some of the off field issues surrounding Larry Baer surrounding the majority owner. Charles Johnson Just the fact that they're lose. They've lost a chunk of their fan base. People have gotten very disillusioned with the team and it just seemed like an odd time to hire a guy who comes with a lot of baggage and a lot of Highly sensitive baggage of issues that That are or not very palatable to people regarding sexual assault and how it was handled which speaks to his decision making to be quite frank. It's not just that these things took place but it was was did he make the right decisions And and then you add on top of it the fact that he was a major league manager and not a very good one and in had to really underachieving seasons in Philadelphia and There were other candidates and so I am surprised that they hired him and then again. I am surprised I'm not surprised by the tenor of the press conference. Because you knew it was going to be like this. You knew when far Hawn had a conference call last night you knew. When he went on the radio this morning you knew when he opened the press conference with remarks addressing what happened in the dodgers Farm system for years ago Still it was a hour long Interrogation really not a coronation Russian. And you know you've you grew up here in. You know the team you cover has had. It's not recently but has changed managers Alive in recent years. The giants have had such stability at that position. They've had four managers in thirty five years saying Roger Craig Dusty. St Baker Philippe illu the shortest tenure. With I think six years and then Bruce Bocce and and to have All this controversy following on the heels of all that goodwill that Bucci left behind is just. It's very odd it is. It was a strange press conference. I mean I guess you could argue that if Farhan is willing to make a higher under these circumstances knowing. There's going to be some uproar that they're going to be a lot of questions asked he's either very very convinced. This is the right guy for the job Even more so than he might have been for anyone else because he knew this was coming and it can't be an easy position to be in And and you would hope extremely convinced that the things he's saying. I E that he thought that Kappler Handled that as well has he could have at the time now. They've both said. They wished they had handled things differently. In retrospect they wish they had consulted with outside experts. They I wish they had been more supportive of the victims Kappler you have criticized him for trying to set up sort of a meeting between the alleged inch perpetrator and the underage victim. Who at the time? Kappler did not know that there was any allegation of sexual assault that was later she had allegedly at that time been assaulted by another woman and it was filmed by dodgers player. That was So to make that clear at the time that was his working knowledge but he did try to mediate a session between them which he spent and he really kind of said today that that was Non Yeah not. That was not really what he should have. I've been doing so I think he's learned a lot from it and clearly not just far Han but the rest of the giants brass are convinced that lessons were learned. And that's enough and I guess they feel like the incident Get something that. They're willing to overlook the wrong word. But certainly it's not enough to have kept them from hiring well and the the thing that you know more and more has come to light during this process. Is They have to overlook it or else. They have to hold far haunt accountable accountable too because Farhan was also a decision maker in that process with the dodgers. He was one of the guys that that Kappler reported up the chain to Oh and was also involved in not going to the police in punting it to the legal team in the legal team was basically You know duck and cover hover was their strategy and and you know they didn't inform authorities and and so You know I think that it's weird. It makes a a weird bond Between Kappler and far Han that they had each other's back back then when they had to make this they they were making. What many would consider the wrong decisions? And now they're going to be decision makers here with the giants and sure so. I'm sure there's trust between the two some of them and learning processes between the two of them. But I don't know how well that's GonNa be viewed from the outside like. Can you trust their decision making together. I also also You know and you and I have. We're we're both women. Obviously we've both been working in this business for about the same amount of time which is a hell of a long time and you know I just. It's just kind of familiar scenario. You know you. When when incidents of domestic violence or sexual assault happen they dr trivialized or overlooked or kind of swept away when they happen then if they kinda resurface or someone's held accountable then there's a whole bunch chipper hand wringing and apologizing? You know talk about lessons learned and all of that and then everyone goes on with their business anyway. Like people aren't really held accountable. Well let's say in this case in one of the things that is a little bit different than some of these others was an far. Home was very clear about this and emphasized at numerous times. There was no effort certainly by Kappler to cover anything up. You know what I went up the chain. He has not denied anything Certainly anywhere along the line So the fact that there wasn't any purported cover up or anything like that Maybe it was just massive massive naievety. Yeah perhaps and it feels that way it feels like naievety and which is weird because it was four years ago. We're we're not talking about like nineteen sixty five or even nineteen ninety-two. We're talking about a world in which Ray Rice had just you know been caught on video a year earlier punching punching his his fiancee. I mean we we. It's not like this happened in in the dark ages and so sometimes when I I appreciate people have saying lessons learned and we're going to be better and do better but it's like really. That was not very long ago and they were grown men making decisions about this at the time and it just felt like they were protecting you know the players. which are you know? They're commodity I'll be back with more with my conversation with an Killian after this contour from Cox has all your favorites all in one place and with the contour remote you can use your voice to fund them on live TV on demand.

"gabe kapler" Discussed on 94WIP Sports Radio
"Of the weather forecast I hope you had a great holiday weekend we are going to wrap it up tonight with that being the final hours of labor day nice win by the Philadelphia Phillies today I'm happy for Reese Hoskins as I pointed out in the final Audi's eight for his last sixteen after just going through a whole ran this slump our wild card standings of bills continue to trail the cubs by two and a half game Chicago won today question I keep asking myself I know everybody does is what with this team have to do to pull me back in. is hands down been the most emotionally and physically draining season many years I've been full way too many times this year alone yeah they won back to back what do you do I'm gonna get super excited now win back to back series then maybe will begin to talk a little bit about something. you know they had a massive series against New York over the weekend weather I almost sweat but you may find themselves still in the thick of things they have three teams right on their heels but there are all right behind the comes two and a half games back with twenty seven games remaining. the most polarizing person in the Phillies organization has been without question Gabe Kapler right right. you are going what your going here is going to make your blood pressure rise. it may even make you. visibly upset to those around you. and by all means hi I encourage you to call in and share your feelings. the conversation that has taken place over and over and over again this season. is whether Gabe Kapler is going to be back right not only you judging him in season four is moves but you're just trying to decide should he be back next year and you assume the Phillies front office should be doing the same thing you assume they are be overly positive attitude drives people absolutely nuts. main content with this the little league approach which is Pat on the back you'll get it next time and by the way not every player likes that. some guys and you probably heard here on this station or have heard players talk in the clubhouse not everybody likes to be patted on the back you'll get him next time sport they want to be told what they did wrong. everybody is driven by something different not all personalities are the same what I can tell you though the way he. Gabe Kapler is personality wise the way that you perceive him that's not an act okay K. biz that's the way he always is thank you Veronica profanities here and there no but that's how he is and as a manager you know just about. every decision that he makes. is based on analytics which is insane. unfortunately for him the handful of got feels he that he's had most of the time they don't work out. now here is where your anger might grow. do you think campers coming back at the next season you think you she'll be gone. by the time September thirtieth it's if the Phillies do not make the playoffs down Macklin tech who designed this pitching staff by the way we'll continue to be the GM after this season that's an even bigger argument to have well he spoke yesterday on MLB network radio. Gabe Kapler now I find my contact if you're Macklin tech what's the logical way to go about this if you're asked about Gabe Kapler I know what I would do and say well you know I I would. he may be your guy but the way things have panned out these two seasons which can leave a lot of questions you have to leave both doors you have only the door open to both ends right. you could say something like you gave been a troop withdrawal this we've gone through a lot of injuries and you know he's he's done what he what he can do the best you could possibly do I think he has a bright future but we won't be addressing anything about the manager until after the season. that's the that die in my opinion the best way to handle any Gabe Kapler question considering how this season has gone considering the Gabe Kapler Gabe Kapler is a perception. to the fans which is horrible. thank you brace yourself. yesterday Macklin tack on MLB network radio was asked about the future of Gabe Kapler and this is what he had to say. as you become more and more experienced as a manager as a leader as you become more experience with the Philadelphia market I think it is remarkable how much he has adjusted into me that is as impressive as anything that cap has gone. is his ability to sort of read what's going on learn from his mistakes or the mistakes of others around him incorporate that into his behavior and his in the way he and the way he manages a game and manages it wow hold on wait a minute hold on are you upset just a little bit what would hang on a minute. get back contacted them there he kept going ability to adjust and learn and grow has been remarkable frankly I think he's he's at a point now where I think he's you know he's he's very very different than what he was like in the beginning of last hold on a minute he's very very different than the way he was at the beginning of last year no kidding that's been account it's been two calendar years. he it is remarkable he doesn't make the same a twenty is mistake twice he's adjusted well let me pause for a minute my first reaction upon hearing that. the help that I just listen to. maybe I missed something. because apparently Gabe Kapler is not only a great manager what a great communicator to his players did I miss him too scared to tell Cesar Hernandez he was benched. and one word got to Hernandez. he backed off. put him in every game the great communicator did I miss something here. and has gave and I don't mean this is a good day bye bashing fest here but he's he done anything anything. that indicates he is a good let alone a great manager. I can't believe what I just heard. I I got you pulled me away when I heard the way he phrased that. now you contact knows that he's going to be asked to address gave cap or the season is unfortunately heading in this this trend with a. half a billion dollars on a roster on roster additions the GM doesn't address the pitching staff properly yeah you had injuries you've got a ton of injuries every team in baseball has injuries. and yet you continue to fall flat to this point. can you had opportunities many to seize control. and where am I got news for you get the players on the field playing what is it Gabe Kapler done anything. this suggests to you that he's a good or even a great manager that's what you should be analyzing right now if you're back contact. you have a lot of decisions to make roster wise after the year but the biggest one is gonna be Kapler. he's in your to a three year deal there's no way you bring him back next year a lame duck with enough with with just the third year of his contract you're making the decision on I'm right here and now and if you're looking at him and everything you've seen those far makes you feel he's a great manager. I must be losing my mind. clearly I don't know squat about baseball and neither does any other Phillies fans. stop right after I go on this rant and I'm saying I'm yelling at myself when I heard this the first time. my point is that women hold on wait a minute maybe maybe there's a chance. in this when I ask you now. is it possible. Macklin tack is line. it is the truth you believe what he just said I'm sorry I'm not trying okay because he really believe that..

"Went with the ninety four W. I'd be in for and it's been a busy one this morning as we look back on some interesting comments Macklin tack and Gabe Kapler over the last couple of days it really gave cappers the most surprising part about all this because Gabe Kapler has just been he's basically if the Buddha was a manager I mean really I would imagine there's incense in the clubhouse in this little water falls on his desk and you throw a pebble in a pond when you walk in the room like you know it's it's something about Gabe Kapler it it's got this funky vibe to it that it's that old California you know U. T. there's a spirit to Gabe Kapler and he's well established it too really strong criticism since he got here and now for the first time we're starting to see him place criticism and I think that's a massive and jarring distinction to see from Gabe Kapler in the timing of it is very curious as well we're gonna talk about all that because it starts a couple of days ago after the trade deadline when mac clin tack he he sets the tone here he's the general manager of the organization and he says basically I have no accountability for what goes on with this team the rest of the way I've done what I can here's Matt talking about all the great additions that he's made today is the culmination of two months of of roster building and you know starting with J. Bruce and then Brad Miller and then I should write this down I have in my pocket I'll try to remember them but yeah it's time that you know obviously more recently was Morin and Parker in the bull pen and it was smiling Vargas in the rotation a deaf player like Logan Morrison I don't even know if we've announced but we acquired danced really today in a small trade with with the Orioles for cash considerations he'll go to triple a so there you go Macklin tech naming all these different people it's a season it's not just a single day it's a couple of weeks and months to gather and so all of those little moves the Macklin tax may have been enough that if he's not responsible for anything that happens here he's done his job that's what Macklin tech told you loud and clear and he has said it before and and so here's the other thing that he said before this is mac contact talking about his star players you've all heard me say this before for this team to accomplish what it wants to accomplish we're gonna need the stars in that room to carry us and we have the talent and we we met we had a very splashy offseason we brought in a lot of talent and those guys are going to have to do what they do to put us in L. to push us into October yeah he's putting it on the star players you say I've made all these moves look all these pieces I made a made like a different trades for all the spare parts and so I build a Ferrari and it's on the star players to be the engine that drives this thing somewhere I totally disagree but that's Macklin tack pushing responsibility for all this aside and saying Hey I've done my job and the V. really surprising thing here is the person that said I completely agree with that statement I've done everything I can and this is on the players to get us to the playoffs here's none other than Phillies manager Gabe Kapler one of the things that stands out to me is is what Matt said either yesterday or a couple of days ago about how if we're going to be the team that we expect to be our stars are gonna curious and you know JT is one of our stars Gabe Kapler who hates criticism with a passion the same way oil hates water mac clin tack Gabe Kapler have now decided together they're going to blame the star players how significant is that when Gabe Kapler a guy who makes everything positive coal Irving goes into a game where it's five to one against the Braves in I I mean I get why he was out there it's not about why he was in there whether contact occurred rather Kapler was right the moment but Cole Irving goes out there against the Braves he gets crushed any game that the Phillies really could have used that win they get the mostly get blown out it's the sixth inning gave Capper after that games as color of it we had a lot of confidence a color but he's been great recently which is just flat out not true that to me that's okay cappers bit and now he's saying I agree with the general manager that the it's on the star players here they need to be the guys to carry this team in sense I've done what I can hear I've done my job and that's just not true and in my kid Angelina's producing the show might give some thoughts on this yet what if he now hold ever admit this but what if it's also and indirect way of admitting that it is his fault so that's why the stars of the bill now it's because he didn't provide enough depth with it with the pitching staff both starting in starters and bullpen the the benches then you know it's been a disaster up until they got Brad Miller Jeepers which is very proud to point out yes so maybe saying like the stars in the go bell him in the the death out well yeah because he isn't coach those guys up enough and the other thing is his assistance having coached him up enough either right because Gabe Kapler couple months ago or a month ago or so you they were playing they had that series just before the Mets they're struggling they're playing horribly and it's like all right Gabe what about firing somebody on your coaching staff and this was Gabe Kapler a different answer for you today that I had yesterday with the right person on the room we're continuing to refine and work on our processes and our practices so the work we do leading up to the game has to improve you know I think the last thing I'd say about that is nobody's gonna out house was nobody's gonna work us prior to the game to get campers and fired anybody hasn't blamed anybody on his coaching staff yes and blamed himself and now he's going to say it's on the players players that the star player specifically not the offense as a whole and I think that's an important distinction to make Gabe Kapler says it and when he echoes Macklin tack Macklin tax said it himself as well it's not the offense it's the star players that's where they're putting the accountability but here's the interesting element here Gabe Kapler goes out and criticize the star players you mentioned the aid these are the guys that have to do it he also very recently in the same it really the same press conference he goes out after the giants game yesterday and he talks about his lead off hitter he criticizes got care we're looking for more consistent high quality at bats the first about of the game when we can get him we were able to get that for a little while and that's no disrespect anyone individual it's just something that we're looking for yeah that's what he says but we all know how give Capper speaks Gabe Kapler will tell you the Rangers swore as the greatest leave this ever lift the throne you some of his pitches are just the most beautiful page you'll ever see I drew Smyly and cliff Lee are exactly the same god you know that's that's K. capital so when he's going on say yeah our lead off fitting is good enough that's interesting and by the way he says the star players of not being good enough that's pretty interesting he changes the line up that's pretty interesting and it all happens after the trade deadline when mac clin tackle does what accountability doesn't give cap or any help and so why is it that now Gabe Kapler decided he's going to start being more vocal about the problems on this team do you feel that he's on the hot seat a little bit that's the most logical conclusion I can come to this team was at a major crossroads moment and management decided they were going to sell out on this thing we're not gonna bother we're just gonna get Corey Dickerson has gotten injured hamstring and dance Strela who's in triple way and that's gonna be it we're gonna be satisfied with that we're gonna wait till next year essentially is the nationals going to add three people the bull pen as the Braves going to add three people the bull pen Phillies are making those moves and so they're blaming the star players now star players the criticism that you can have is that it's more tangible it's emotional it's energetic those are the kinds of things that you're not seeing from the Philly stars Aaron nola Bryce Harper Reese Hoskins real Muto sick Gora those guys are not rah rah guys they're not the people you're seeing has there been a closed door meeting with this team no nothing like that and so the Phillies have just sort of coasted by N. Kapler has set that tone again cap or not taking accountability is putting it on the players and so what I think is interesting is that while you're looking at the Phillies in a manager that very well likely realizing now that he's on the hot seat the team that struggling and falling behind in the playoff race well we on the other side of the equation right across the street you've got a guy in Carson Wentz Jason Kelsey was speaking about him yesterday he's as hungry as ever not a feeling of difference cautions incredibly intrinsically motivated guy he's been not just for its own sake of the energy he brings were really from an offer to just change the competitive person that he is rubs off on everybody else and isn't it exciting to get him on the field in just a couple of days next Thursday eagles and tightens we're about to go man I mean Broncos and falcons played last night the hall of fame game first NFL preseason game of the year it's football season we're getting a game every single week until February and that's an exciting feeling you can't wait to see what the eagles are gonna do a team that has accountability team that has leadership team and has consistent veterans I mean it's just that the Phillies they don't have that it starts with accountability and you look at the manager and you look at the general manager and you look at the present and they just don't want to accept it and they're going to put on the players instead who has more responsibilities of the players is the manager is it the general manager I think it's pretty obvious who and so Gabe Kapler feel a little hot on that seat and he should we'll see how.

"But think of what's gone on over the past couple of days right because we've had a couple of things one was going into the brave series Gabe Kapler said and this is typical spin Gabe Kapler saying Hey we have the support of the front office it's nice to have the support of the front office we know we're going to have more support from the front office if we do well in this Brave Sears and so this series is really important to us he got price are pretty sad about that second game against Detroit he said Hey we're gonna go all in we want price rested we need everything we got to win this series the Phillies get absolutely dominated in that series embarrassed in that series and once that happened you like all right well this is probably over then a couple of days later what happens the trade deadline comes all they get is Corey Dickerson who has an injured hamstring and who knows how much she plays is gonna be a platoon left fielder anyway and danced Railey who they send a triple way those are the additions so Gabe Kapler knowing the brace yours was important not succeeding in the Braves series does not get that support from the front office and now he's got a team that's been very uninspired underperforming and does not have reinforcements along the way there no obvious candidates interplay there's nobody to trade for there's no big free agent that still out there the you know Kight cool Kimbrell stuff Kimber was a great anyway but still like the there's no names like that that are out there and so the Phillies are stuck and so what happens with Gabe Kapler as all of these things come together a couple of curious things first off is Gabe Kapler agrees with Matt Clint tack that the problem with this team the big issue here it's it's not Gabe Kapler it's not medical attack it's the star players one of the things that stands out to me is is what Matt said either yesterday or a couple of days ago about how if we're going to be the team that we expect to be our stars are gonna curious and you know JT is one of our stars so that's Gabe Kapler agreeing with the general manager who said the star players need to get us to the playoffs it's on them it's not on the fact that the starting pitching has been abysmal it's not the fact of the bull pen fell apart because you invest in a bunch of older guys that were not able to stay healthy it doesn't have to do with the triple a system that was not able to produce anybody to fill in for those players tubal Herrera who gets suspended Franco who can't hit as much as they keep trying again and again and again it's all of these different things that have come together and give you a bad baseball team and Matt contacted not fix those issues and Gabe Kapler has not done anything dramatic over the course of the season to motivate these guys you're not seeing him bench people you're not seeing him make dramatic changes to the line up a weight he does it after the trade deadline Gabe Kapler and not only does he do it after the trade deadline but he does it and trashes the guy who was at the top of the line up we're looking for more consistent high quality at bats the first about a game when we can get a we were able to get that for a little while and that's no disrespect anyone individual it's just something that we're looking for yeah no disrespect anyone individual meanwhile colors will come out he'll blow a game against the Braves any goes you know we have a lot of confidence in coal we're talking about Gabe Kapler here like these cuts seem they might seem inane with any other person on the planet with Gabe Kapler these are exceptionally big red flags you does not talk like this he's now blame the star players and Scott Kingery in a day he also shook up the line up yesterday so Bryce Harper and Reese Hoskin switch spots Cesar Hernandez moved to the top of the line up again why do all of these things happen right after the trade deadline right after Macklin taxes I'm not going to support this team and I'm not accountable for this team you gotta figure there's some sort of conversation or some sort of pressure in may and gave Kapler said where he's on the hot seat it just it has to be what else is left because think about Macklin tech just went out and blame the star players for not performing I mean is is that the whole issue with the offense is these guys are getting the proper instruction they can't hit or is Macklin tacky hopefully have some level of common sense like the rest of us you say well the managers not doing his job the hitting coach that he's captain refuses the fire is not doing his job and so gave by association is responsible and maybe they have to go after the season and they probably should go after the season I would fire to a couple weeks ago frankly you got to think and for Gabe Kapler I think he's finally realised that he's on the hot seat and it's gonna be so interesting to see how Gabe Kapler continues to change here over the next couple of weeks over the next couple months he saw this team wither and die last year and he's tried to act like this year has is just fine.

"What does that tell you about where this we're gonna Zetian feels they are right now doesn't inspire a lot of confidence and you know Gabe Kapler it's got to be more flexible in some situations you know you can't go into a game with this game plan and not a journalist it's the criticism we are only any read for all those years as you go very good game plan we couldn't adjust on the fly I think it's the water that was way rolled Gabe Kapler as well Hey sometimes you don't have to necessarily go to Adam Morgan that spot like you don't have to go to court of in because the runs your this many runs down its this inning go to the guy that has the best chance to get the V. opposition now bottom line solid difficult eight eight eight seven two nine nine four nine for your Jimmy in mount Holly tell Jamie yes well we're certainly trying to be formed I mean that there's no doubt Mar Mar the box to me I'm not sure I think he's I think he's I think it takes is a pretty seriously well hello I mean I'm I'm anxious to hear more cuts before the show was over a great show by the way that is for the Phillies go a meeting I was listening to Mike from south Philly ID you know you can never really all do you any of his points because they're always right on target now as far as this year you're the only hope you have is you have to hold the lock out with these pitching acquisitions insult also great withdrew smile you know we get the sequel artists like the Gulf Friday night I mean he can be smiley and smiling and could continue this the rest of the year I mean that that that's a bit of a reach but I mean that's the only open ports you got a hope that the offense can stop eating together I mean hopper gets hot removed you would set her up with Tommy really important and and I preached is that those units will punch a hole shouldn't no one really agrees with me but think about this think about this team's record before them the contra green Jurien after and just one player can make a difference I don't understand why people think that way I mean think about it two thousand eight it would have lost any of the big three any one of the big three in June and I miss the rest of the year suppose the wet socks what a loss will keep backs early in the year for the whole year suppose the year before the Astros were less Jose out and he missed all year from chewing on a mint these dreams little one squad so I mean if this business this cliche is that everybody buys requires very well can't make that much of a difference they try to have yeah well Jimmy I I think there's something to that but but Marty thinking is more it shouldn't make that much of a difference like I don't argue that losing the clutching has been catastrophic for this team but with all the other talent did they have it shouldn't have crippled them the way it has yeah would you would break but you still care giving say my points about the two thousand eight bills in the red Sox last year I used in the year before now this is for the eagles go arming the gun I'm very excited about this I mean this on paper this is probably the most talented team that we've seen it all light arms I'm a bit older that you and I can go back even further it's all like to nineteen eighty and stuff like that I mean that is this does what we look like well loaded everywhere you want to look so I mean this is the only thing I I what should people because of this optimism because of the Superbowl apostolate I mean I'm looking at the schedule I think they're gonna lose that second game to woodland or which is going to set people back on their rear ends because I mean the bladder they finally get a certain employees of the prime time game I mean that they lost the aren't breaking low scoring games to watch here I mean we have a bad history you in in the ground I made it I'm curious to see if that does play out I mean all the Superbowl most people are going to be really on the heels of you know we we think Washington America first the key here yeah that's gonna be a slaughter what I'll share was gonna get a better I'm not so sure I mean the guaranteed win general but and what I'll know J. Washington it's gonna be bad I think they're gonna be one of the five worst teams in football this year you know what why we'll see about that but but as far as vehicles what would you talk about me is that I don't I don't know about you always I mean to me that that that's a big question mark I mean they also J. simply to sell because it was not a question mark I mean the most important player I think he's gonna stay healthy I think he's going to be great primarily because of the specter of Nick Foles is no longer going to be hiring all we know and we gonna have to go into the locker room and she traveled light showrooms did you start doing that then he chuckled I mean I I don't think they're going to do that but I mean what else is going to have a just a monster unit level once the bat him to be the league MVP I think that's a good calculated risk I think he stays healthy I've been in this guide dynamic I mean you go back to thousand seventeen if he didn't get hurt there's no doubt in my mind he would just carry that brilliantly write the play offs I mean your thing is we wouldn't gotten a Kelsey speech at the parade because they would they wouldn't have another dog but if there's a lot of high hopes up because I caution people Superbowl approx because that means you would take the season of the year if they don't and that's what only should come out of the weight when I made about say what they're gonna be don't get so that leaves the conference championship game I would consider back at our toll failure well I Jimmy I I mean I think I think it is fair to to expect Super Bowl or bust with this team I I think there and normally I would agree with you that I think those kind of lofty expectations all or you know a little out of line but I think this team is that talented I really do and when you look at the mix they have of young players and veteran players the time is now and this is an unbelievable opportunity and you don't know how many times you're gonna go when we season with the team this count I'm supposed to get to the Superbowl and they lose a real threat to our I mean it looks like we're getting with the commissioner says at the end you know I I I I wanted to get your issue executive order to clack culture I mean in other words that that ruling that competitive nothing to be ashamed over me so then if you give us a super ball all lost then you have to say that the prelude that this season was a failure and I can't go there I mean I have high hopes I'm predicting twelve and four guaranteed division champions and again I I'm warning people way ahead of time I'm guess I'm watching those bears I do not want to see them in the playoffs I don't say what we couldn't beat them again but I don't want all of them in a in a playoff setting the bears are good and now I I I I they are probably the team in the NFC I think I fear I fear the most Jenny not not here but they're the team that I think poses the biggest threat to the I really like outside one of the other hosts who I like a lot is giving me this currency all business because he's not there anymore crap I mean that that's like last year with all of that right he can develop stuff I hated the lack or oppose in a good mood I chuckle I mean to me losing friends you always not gonna slow this team down a ministry incomplete defense the models piloting it I think her breast he is not as much of a piece of dreck as people think I mean he's he's run of the mill I mean really J. Jimmy I mean trip is key put the bears in position to win that game last year he brought them down in the final drive made a pretty darn good throw to al Robinson to put the bears in the spot to win that game yeah I mean this is so to me that that that's the best you hate is a little short story about me that that's the team I worry about I mean normally in this I mean we should they are aware of there are kryptonite however if we can get them do you should have a link I mean I I'd be concerned but but I wouldn't be worried I mean Chicago I'm a little worried about a mile away and are playoff game with the server was either the call whether wouldn't adversely affect them that's your thing I mean I I don't know about you but I'm going to be really that's the sea while watching the closer yeah the eagles as the Chicago Bears were going to win the activation I mean to me that there is no question in my mind so they'll be in the playoffs I just rather not see them in the play no I agree Jimmy I appreciate call I think the bears are gonna be good I I do I I their defense easily J. I mean a a room they give the eagles car problems last year in the playoffs and trippy ski I'm I'm not as big believers Jimmy is I think your biscuits fine if you if you surround him properly and you know you give him a good protection he can be you can be good enough certainly you know you've seen other quarterbacks improves the young guy he can be good enough easy is nothing special but yes I I think the bears are very good team I think that division in general is really good I I can't believe in the Vikings after what they did with the way they just folded up last year the end of the season on but I think we may we back I just because I am Rogers getting older and I just don't believe we've seen the last of our religion Adam white and if he's going to make the playoffs again he's got to do it so you know and I just I don't think we've seen the last of that the saints I think are going to fall down a little bit they still cry when that division but they're gonna fall down a little bit and I'm not as high on the reins as a lot of people are armed after last year I think it's gonna be tough for them to bounce back from what was a really really embarrassing performance in the Superbowl I kind of thing is not that easy to walk come back from the following year eight eight eight seven two nine nine four.
Philadelphia Phillies' Gabe Kapler calls on reliever who hasn't thrown
"And replay has just gotten way way out of control more than anyone thought was necessary that should have been a win win for the tigers and the pirates ended up winning thirteen to ten in thirteen innings i didn't see this yesterday but i heard about the phillies avenue manager gabe kaplan and he's like a lot of these new managers never been a manager before younger guy analytically driven you know that's the new wave right maybe gave kaffir should have had a little managerial experience because yesterday in atlanta he brought in a pitcher that hadn't been up in the bullpen and it's a little unclear exactly what happened but the umpire allowed the pitcher to take more warmup tosses the the quote from jerry lane the crew chief for whatever reason the picture wasn't even getting ready who got crossed up i'm not placing blame on anybody because i don't know but he wasn't ready hadn't thrown a pitch and the last thing i want to do is get somebody hurt so he let him throw more pissed off the braves manager he ended up getting the jackson gabe kappler said afterwards any time we have a miscommunication that miscommunication is my responsibility so i take full responsibility for it i mean it's third game as bigly manager and you bring a pitcher into the game who was sitting out in the bullpen and not thrown a single warmup pitch that ain't good we got these new ally of all these new managers most of them have had no manager experience aaron boone hadn't even been a coach anywhere a broadcaster and they're doing a lot of different things and aaron judge playing center field and he might even be batting leadoff would seems kinda crazy and you know we saw the astros using four outfielders i saw the other day and it actually work because it was a fly out and they moved bregman out to the outfield but that's kind of crazy we see a lotta pitchers batting eighth in the order now i know tampa bay is considering using a bullpen for an entire game every fifth day having a four man rotation and then every fifth day just using the bullpen i mean i'm i'm fine with taking a look at things and just because things have been done one way for a.
