"kappler" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"This is the baseball tonight podcast for Wednesday, June fifth two thousand nineteen bust only a producer every day is Josh macrey before the Phillies game in San Diego yesterday. The Philadelphia Phillies announced that Andrew mccutchen has a tourney yell in his left knee. He's out for the year. Gabe Kappler the Phillies manager, talked about it really disappointing are mentioned it last night, that Andrew has has not just been a catalyst at the top of our lineup a catalyst in our clubhouse, somebody that everybody under that respects greatly. We, we look to him for guidance and support and for that reason. Nice here, Andrew mentioned that he's gonna stick around as much as possible that something that, that I discussed prior to talking to you and basically said, I, I asked him if we want him around much possible, because he makes. Nobody better and his energy is always welcome in our clubhouse. Tim Corcoran was not sportscenter with Kevin Gandhi talking about the impact of this injury on the Phillies lineup. This is a bad loss. Look, he's not the player. He was a few years ago when he won the MVP but he's been a big upgrade defensively in left field. He's the best leadoff hitter on their team. He controls the strike zone. He's great in the clubhouse Jay, Bruce will help, but with Oduber Harare, also having some issues at the moment, the Phillies are in trouble in the outfield and it got much worse today when mccutchen went down and we'll talk about all those issues coming up here as you go along in the podcast today. Now the first day of mccutchen absence. Jay Bruce was in the.
Cubs 8, Phillies 4: Cubs drop a couple of big bombs on rookie Cole Irvin
"Irvine's third start didn't go. Well gave up. Two home runs to win over four hundred feet of peace in accounted for seven of the cubs runs as Chicago beat the Phillies eight to four getting get through five. So I'm I'm really disappointing sounds like Vince Velazquez is pretty close to coming off the injured list. He was dealing with a strain forearm gave Kappler's got a decision to make. Now, I think that's something that we want to spend some time thinking about after a loss like this. And after we just kinda got punched, I think the main thing is that we go back and digest and look at what happened in the game. And really evaluate it with a little distance between what has happened. Alaska's told reporters that his rotation spot is his Kappler said he doesn't see as a right, the Phillies did not make former Philly Cole hamels pay last night. He threw ninety nine pitches over four innings. But the fills were also for fifteen invented scoring position. They will try for a series split this afternoon. Kappler's got his main bullpen pieces to work with which wasn't the case. The other night he admits if late inning. Pat shack needs more time the warm up he's got to give it to them. No matter what, you know, when I find something out about our players, which is that they need a little something a little different kind of support I need to step up and give it to talking in the Phillies radio network. Today's purse pitches at two twenty Aaron Nola against John, Lester

"Bus role. We heard gate Kappler URI's about resource skins getting hit by a pitch on Sunday night. Well before that game gave us a little calmer. When he talked our Buksh Shami. The skipper the Philadelphia Phillies gave Kappler year two for you. And you got a bunch of new faces. And obviously the guy in right field is the biggest name the newest face Bryce Harper. And there's a buzz isn't there you were just talking with some of the assembled media about opening day everybody's excited, and then there's usually a little bit of a lull, but we're here for Sunday night baseball and we were here yesterday. And there's still a buzz buzz is like it's opening day tonight. Yeah. That's unheard of the interesting thing about opening day is we came into die game feeling like we had one five or six straight. That was the buzz in the building. Like we had already. We already had some wins under our belt, and that's how the fans were reacting. And now we do actually have a couple of win wins under but still feels like opening data's still preparing the same way still the same level of excitement. And you know, we got a lot of work to do. But. It doesn't mean that. We can't celebrate the good moments that have happened. So far, what do you like about this team? When you when you look at this team on paper, and you say man over one sixty two this is what will be really good at. I love the fact that our our clubhouse is filled with leaders. So I think last year one of our young leaders Reese Hoskins was it was in a tough spot. He had less than a year of service time, and he was the biggest voice in the clubhouse on the position players side. And now we've added some people around him to help support that incredible voice. It's Andrew mccutchen. It's JT real Muto. It's Bryce Harper. It's still Jerry Jake Arrieta. It's an Aaron Nola who feels even more compelled to speak his mind. And now, we have a collection of leaders. There are more. I mean, I think that that Cesar Hernandez has leadership characteristics. Hector Narus spoke on our opening night in spring training, and and delivered some really power. For word. So we have a lot of guys who are are pulling the rope in the same direction. If there's anything that stands out to me, it's out leadership. Would you learn from last year we were just talking off the air about maximizing a lineup as opposed to or I should say maybe including or contemplating player comfort. Yeah. So last year. I really utilized information is really interested in in utilizing information sometimes a stoic way in an unemotional way this year. I think I recognized how important it is to put players in their most comfortable positions because that comfort could lead to confidence. And one thing we know is that confident baseball players are good baseball player. So although we are still going to try to get tactical advantages where we can not at the expense of of stripping away comfort for players. Good to see you pal. Thanks for the time Facebook, appreciate it. Bleacher tweets, some really interesting Bleacher tweets BUSTER, and some new blood some new people getting involved, which is always good to see we got this one. From Harry loves sports at not camera. One Harry says which is more likely to happen. Craig kimbrel signing a one year deal with a contender or signing a long term deal with a hopeful team that has a bright future, and I checked on this on Sunday. And what I'm told is he still looking for a long term deal. Do you think it will be with the team that has playoff aspiration this year? I it's a work in progress. But right now, he's still sticking to that request for long-term deal. Fair. Enough quest is next at quest called tribe BUSTER with the new trade deadline will we see early season trades where we hadn't previously. Yeah. And the first person actually heard mentioned that was crow Ravitch on this podcast when he talked about sort of those pre deadline trades where teams that feel like you know, what we're going to be on the fence at the end ally. Let's boost the team up here for the next five weeks if we can make some inroads in the standings of we can't we dump players at the end of July. I think there's going to be some of that. I followed up his comment talk to executives with teams. And they thought that that's certainly a possibility you'll see that diamond dasher next up at. Diamond dasher one guys of Bryce Harper could take sub five hundred Phillies team from a year ago and lead them into the postseason deep into the postseason in two thousand nineteen. Would it be the biggest impact in recent memory? Boy, I tell you what when the Diamondbacks. Go Randy Johnson. And Curt Schilling. Yeah. CC's about the assigning with the Yankees win the World Series the first year, Marcus Shera. There have been guys who've had a bigger as big an impact that as you're describing. I think in the past on the field. Josh I've never seen one baseball player. Make as much of an impact in terms of the interest in the team. Is there isn't Bryce Harper. True. It's true. Yeah. And I forget who tweeted out the photo might have even been Todd, but the Phillies team store like all they have is Harper jerseys. It's incredible. He's not even the the only place the only good player on the team. They they have some dudes and you go to their team store in pretty much all you can buy as a number three jersey. It's it's unbelievable rebel sports at rebel sports. One wants to know is it an overreaction to say the cubs need to start panicking with their pitching issues just three games into the season. Or is this a valid concern. Despite how early into the year we are. It's a valid concern with you Darvish, and I don't think there's any getting around that we talked about it on sportscenter on Sunday morning. He's in year two of a six year one hundred twenty six million. Deal. The cubs farm system is down in part because of the trades. They made is they won the World Series in two thousand sixteen and have made the playoffs in recent seasons. So they don't have a lot of resources right now to improve this pitching. They need you Darvish to contribute. And Josh that first outing. Wow. Seven walks in two and two thirds. It is a concern. I agree with Tim. You know, those are the two most watched starters. This week our Chris sale, and you Darvish what do you think? No question about it. Yeah. And I think both are are concerning. And if they come out, you mentioned this with Tim if if they both come out for their second starred in log a similarly unsettling performance, man, you gotta wonder what's going on a couple more here. Let's get to this one from Duval at Duval county buck which is a more surprising start to the season. The success of the Blue Jays rotation. The Orioles taking the series in Yankee Stadium. Or the Mariners finding many ways to win getting off to such a great start. Yeah. We've established. I never say anything. Nice about the Mariners. No. I'm just kidding. Because they disappointed me so many times a passing predictions. It's pretty cool to see their offense. Like they're gonna get in talking with those guys last week. There was a lot of confidence and Tim Beckham. Dee Gordon that that team is gonna head. We'll see how that goes. I can't say anything other than the Yankees taking the series and Yankees. I mean, the Orioles series and Yankee Stadium two out of three from the Yankees won baseball superpowers from a team that won forty seven games last year. That was a shocker to me. What about you big time? It's definitely that. Especially since we were talking all spring about. Hey, the Yankees in their schedule and how it lines up for them to get off to a hot start. This is certainly not what they had in mind in. Finally, we got this one from Nathan Nathan is at G nearly ninety seven BUSTER who would you say was the MVP of opening weekend. Harper yelich, Goldschmidt, or Bellinger, and Nathan you inspired me to send out a poll question on Twitter. And as I wrote to borrow from our friends Golic and wingo who won major league baseball first weekend. And. I put those four names out there, yelling Goldschmidt, Bellinger Harper and a runaway winner and in less than two hours. We got almost twenty thousand votes runaway winner Christian yell at sixty four percent, Bryce Harper. Seventeen percent. Goldschmidt fourteen percent Bellinger five percent. I'd say that's about right? Don't you think? Josh. I think so. Yeah. And I'm glad to see that. It was so overwhelming because I agree that it is yellowish. He got my vote and to see that myself and sixty four percent of the voters agree makes me feel good. Well, occasionally, you you are right. Are you in Timor wrong? When I I I'm sorry at the end of the year, you're gonna go, you know, that yelich trade that's one of the better trades in history. Rock move over Lou Brock. Here's a Christian yelich. Absolutely. Hey, great. Great Bleacher tweets today. Great to see some new blood in the Bleacher tweet segment. Why don't you get involved? Just make sure you use the hashtag Bleacher tweets, that's it for today. And I got a long list of people a think Bryce Harper, Mattie Vive. Freddy Freeman Tim Kirk cartoon gay Kappler Todd rate and both shabby Joshua forget, anybody me. Oh, yeah. Thanks to you too..
Ohio State is the only team to qualify all 10 wrestlers for the NCAA tournament. Let's break down the Buckeyes heading into championships.
"Got a lot going man between that Philly story which broke today from Jeff passan that that Carlos Santana last year. Took a back to some of the TV's where some players were playing video games. Doering actual Phillies games. And I'm saying to myself whatever TV's had to be the casualties. But why isn't why didn't Gabe Kappler put his foot down? Why didn't you lay down the law a little bit? And it makes me wonder about his approach, and if he's being too nice with these
Jacob DeGrom of New York Mets wins NL Cy Young Award
"The Cy Young award winner. Anyone who debated or thought other than that doesn't understand baseball or follow it closely or not he got twenty nine of the thirty first place votes. Max Scherzer got one. And of course, degrom got that voters second place votes. Scherzer's got all twenty nine other second place votes. So they kind of ran away from the field. Aaron Nola the Phillies. More power to 'em had a phenomenal season. Good for Aaron got twenty seven. Of the thirty third place votes. She got one fourth two fourth place votes and one fifth place while was far ahead of Kyle Freeland who finished fourth in the Cy Young bounding but good for Jacob degrom. He wins the NL and the winner in the American League was Pike's. Now took it over Justin Burland race a lot. Closer new American League snout got seventeen first place votes. Berliner got thirteen. So is actually pretty close. But I will tell you why both Blake's now and Jacob degrom won their respective Cy youngs. Three letters e r. A for all the turnover in baseball and the over analytics of baseball and the new stats they have for baseball. The key stat in pitching is still earned run average who on the AL crown for ERA this year that would be breaks now who won the earned run crowned in the National League. And it wasn't close. Jacob degrom that why those two guys are deci young. So I was glad see kudos to the voters voted in these and have different guys vote for different awards and the like, so I give credit to those who voted for those two pitchers because they were bad their best pitchers in their league. This year they deserve to win. They both rightfully get their Cy youngs. Why because they had the best earned run averages any American League. Now, I think it was maybe somewhat telling the Phillies made a move. They changed their pitching coach. I actually thought recruits did a pretty good job this year the last couple of years under peak mechanic, and I wasn't a big fan of his pitching coach. I thought the police should have made a move there prior to they never did delay let mechanic go, and then they put a whole new staff together and elevated recruits on gig Kappler staff and a broaden Chris young who hadn't been doing scouting work for the Astros his first year as a pitching coach. He was the assistant pitching coach here in Philadelphia. And I guess he opened some is and impressed some people and they wanted to do something to change his coaching staff. Some many decided would be at the pitching coach position. So they let go and Chris young will be the Phillies pitching coach for this upcoming year. I don't quite get it. I don't understand it. I don't think Kratz Cranach was the biggest problem this year. Although I did go back and check the Phillies numbers again. Tonight. And I had forgotten how mediocre they were on the pitching side. This side of the guy who finished in third place in the Cy Young Aaron Nola the league ERA this year. Average dead average that's detrimental. That's not great. If your average you gotta be above average. If you want to have any kind of a winning season the league average for earned run average this year. Was four point zero two in the National League here. The Philly pitchers that had ER as above. Are under four point zero to that Curtis who I I always liked Curtis. And I don't quite understand why they didn't give him a chance this past year. He's a lefty us top one lefties, and I thought he should have been given a better chance. He was only in seven games Ziara was sub to at one eighty six do Brera Mosul. Be part of the bullpen again. This year. Aaron Nola initiate who. I know is the IRA ended up at two two point five nine, but I'm tired, and I don't I don't care about knee shack anymore. He's got issues. He's not tough. He doesn't want the ball. He was great at home for long stretches this season. But he was also injured. He's blatantly overpaid going into this year. His ERA says decent year, my eyes. Tell me not really so Arana was solid at two seven three. He'll be back again this year cer- Anthony to ninety five he may be closer feed. Not he's going to be a key component near Penn. Avalon who came over in the trade didn't pitch a whole hell of a lot five and two thirds innings. But at least he did keep his ERA onto four Tommy hunter who I didn't think cat a good year. But his ERA was under four at three point eight zero. Didn't get as many strikeouts. He doesn't walk is a game. Crazy doesn't walk a ton. But I'll give them enough credit that he got it under four and Aaron Morgan at three eight three and Jake Arrieta three nine six so Ariana which just below just above average this year just above. And by the way, I expected a lot more but better than the rest of the pictures. Davis four one five not good enough. Zach f one four thirty six not good enough. Delo Santos who dominated and AAA got a couple of shots in the big leagues. Including a couple of starts. Four seven four. Not good enough. Nick Vada four seven seven not good enough Vinnie Velazquez, four eighty five not good enough. Jake Thompson who they moved on from Hector Narus actors Hecht is the kind of pitcher is gonna get manages wired. Gabe Kaplan is going to get fired because act the narrows, they're probably it'd be a couple of other contributing reason. But Hector narrates will be part of it five ten, and I know he got hot at the end of the year and actually gave him some good outings in September. You wanna make captain Ariza? Key component your pen next year, you go there. I'd rather not. And so on and so forth down to the Jared. I'd coughs in the world and the mine hall. We Milner at a world. Just not good enough to Phillies don't have enough pitching. And nobody's talking about the Phillies upgrading their pitching during this off season. It's all about Harper and Machado, and if not are Machado, we only get one. What are the other moves going to be they need upgrade the pitching? And just making Chris young. They're pitching coach isn't going to be enough for my money. So have you wanna get on on the Phillies Aaron Nola congrat- vision? Third in the Cy Young had a hell of a season wanted a better starting seasons. We've seen in a while. You gotta go back to Lee and holiday and hamels in the light. We're good couple of removes for years removed from having a to ace and affiliates. Did have a ace in Aaron Nola this year didn't quite get the Cy Young, but he did finish third which he should get props for eight eight seven to nine ninety four ninety four Steve from the Poconos checks in. Hey, steve. Joanie? How are you doing match? Really good to talk to you, my pledge, you what's on your mind tonight. Garissa? I just want to say

"And. Fell off my foot and rolled on the machine I would have been looking for the exit sign, so I would've went home. I know that was a bad omen, but you should maybe look for a water fountain or something like that. Right. And actually, I've been doing bad been drinking less coke. These guys all God's put less sugar in half. But it's just the omen of losing the cooter. You knew you couldn't win today. You just knew when that quarter fill up your shoe went onto the thing. You knew you were going, and you knew that he should have. No, actually, he did sort of very flushed in. I mean, he came in and breaking your PA. I know I know you're doing it's fun. That's good. To say about the fills. And I just think that if they if they signed let's just say they sign opera just all right for argument's sake. How how do we know? How do you know how to win? He was. No, the Harper's going to buy in to the gape Kappler. You know, analytics house eaten in other words, you think he's gonna stand there at the plate and take strike one. Great question. Keep going. You know what I'm saying? Like in other words, he's a great player Harper. But as Kappler gonna Alao him to be that great player or any player for that matter. And that worries me, listen, I think that's a really interesting point and specific to that point. We'll say Kappler. Here's here's the bottom line anybody that has had a track record of success, especially at that level. You've got to let the person pretty much for the most part DUIs thing when Peyton Manning goes to the Denver Broncos. The Denver Broncos are not telling Peyton Manning. Hey, look, let me tell you about our offense. And let let's let's talk about what we like to do the bottom line is John Elway and the Broncos coach sat down with Peyton and said, hey, come on pain. You've been doing this for fifteen years. You're a high level hall of Famer we know what you like to do tell us a little bit about it. Let's let's put some stuff down. Let's put those place. Yeah. Let's put those plays in the playbook. And let's roll. That question. You know, it's to be seen. Right. If Kappler can do that. Right. I mean that is a Anthony. It's a great points. A fantastic phone call John your sense of Kappler's willingness to bend to the greatness of a player who succeeded his way and by the way for what it's worth Bryce Harper does see a lot of pitches. So I think it's one of those things because he does walk line actually striking out to kind of fits personally do. So it's not like he does. China's different case though Machado is someone who swings the bat bats to eighty to ninety but only at three thirty ish type of on base percentage. So for that. Kind of discussion point Machado a more. Interesting example for that. Yeah. I'll buy that. I think that's fair. I mean, what do you what do you make of that show? Don't you just feel like Gabe has proven willing to adjust on the fly? You know, not just to what goes on during the season in that clubhouse, but he's always been a player's manager. I mean, he's going to try to facilitate whatever makes the player feel the most comfortable in Eddie's, and that sort of thing, and I I do think he would bend a little and be okay with that. And I think any manager has. I mean, I you'd be dumb. If you don't. I mean, just the bottom line is should be dumb. And he's not dumb. He's not dumb. But he's. To this point has seemed pretty rigid, frankly. So it's, you know, chip Kelly wasn't dumb the problem with chip Kelly was that he was rigid. And that's what you hope. Gabe kaplan. Not as he experiences more as a manager. He's willing to bend to, you know, new new information to create a different way to approach him. Let's get to our picks as it is in fact week number nine of the National Football League. We'll tell you about last week the selections that occurred last week in the results of of where things are right now in the season last week John went three and three member. He made three extra PEX because he hadn't had three the previous week to three and three John which just moved his percentage way off. I mean, this guy this guy gets three wins. And it's it's like, you know, breaking news city proclamation. John Ritchie got three right? Turn right. Oh. In one. In the bonus question bonus question if you remember was how many threes Marquel? Foltz would shoot Johnson ten I said six faults entered last night with seven he shot zero finished with seven pace. So I got that one right? John. Got it wrong for the season. Overall, John for the year. Let me get this right here. John of for the year. Is something I'm going to come back in a moment may for the year sixteen and eight what the three last week four and three in the bonus question twenty and eleven overall and John and quickly doing math. You are eleven seventeen and three right? Better better better than it was eleven seventeen and three also foreign pushes, you specialize in that.

"Many drafts is he had? Three. How long does it usually takes minor leaguers Carita for years to come up to the big leagues? Yes. In all along the way, these players leap off the pager. Yeah. They're elite at every level the Phillies have none. But you're you're asked way. So you're asking for players to come up here and make an impact when they haven't had time yet, if not the major quakes I'm talking about produce. I would ever you are rookie ball AA Tra. Boy, there's no-one no-one that's exceeding expectations knowing that. You why why is that? So I disagree with you on that. Because Adam Hazel their first round pick from last year. Jim south bay reported today could be there leftfielder by next season. And let me tell you. What's going to happen that could is a high average batter? He he he's not going to hit for power. They're going to change you swing and he'll be hitting two. We'll see Brian. I don't know that you don't either. We'll see the bottom line is Matt Clinton has not done anything to say he's bad yet. As you say great. No, I won't say that. But the jury's out. We're gonna find out soon, and I will get you in a specific example, why Kappler is a horrible, man. I'm ready for it. Tell me keys he is taken in the grass soup. Winging second baseman made him was shortstop. He goes up to back with a hardness and not a bad hat. Hat begging for a walk. For that. Wait a second. He made him a shortstop. The GM that you don't like kept Cesar Hernandez here. What are we supposed to say? So hernandez. Asshole. Looks just sit guys that have the best on base percentage on the team on the bench, right? Almost thirty years old and still doesn't know how to run the basis. Brian Scott King grew for the most part. This year has been the worst hitter in the National League. And you wanna sit a better offensive player than him the whole year. No what I'm saying is what he's done the Kingery. He played them freeze played on four hundred at bats. What does he done? It's the only explanation. You don't go from being an aggressive monetarily player to going up there. Begging for walks. I muster managers you to do that. That's their offense of philosophy. That's that goes up Ryan and the phone call. What's gone on in this town? This year has is my boggling to me that it's all gave capital small. Do you? Remember when that clinic was hired. What did he say? He thinks the most important part of baseball is controlling the strike zone. Mcclintock signed Carlos Santana mcclen drafted Adam Hazel and Mickey Mony. This is the way the Phillies wanna play baseball. If you think this is Gabe Kappler, I have news for you. If you want gave Kappler fired they're going to find another Gabe Kaplan. Now gives unique a lot of ways. I don't know if you find another guy like that. But the positively, but in terms of baseball and the way they try to play. They just fired all they're hitting instructors. They're doubling down on this. Okay. I've got two points Kingery literally than interview like two weeks ago and said that he liked being a leadoff hitter. So you could see more pitches and kind of get a feel for the pitcher was dealing. You mean the minor league? Right. Right. So he was never really this aggressive hitter. And also how is a guy hunting for a walk when as a to seventy one on base percentage for the most entire season as mostly down. Oh, two in it, bats, not welcome much. Also Clinton has gotten unlucky because he he signed trade for clay Buchholz and signed Charlie Morton who truly morning close out the World Series and was looking like an AL Cy Young offenders this year. Charlie Morton, Mike at twenty five million dollars a year in free agency this coming winter and clay Buchholz might win player comeback player of the year. Yeah. So he's hit on those. Did he hit on an Michael Saunders? No. But like every GM and rebuild tries to just take fliers on these veterans to try to flip them in deals like that's what the what you do most of them. They don't work out because they're not very good players. That's why bad teams are signing them. I don't know. Oh back clinic. I'm not I'm not going to sit here and tell you mclintock's him. I don't know that yet. I know he hasn't screwed this thing up royally yet. Here's a Google with the Padres. Did they give Eric hosmer? If you think the Carlos Santana contracts bad cook, Eric hosmer, give eight years one hundred forty million. They're saddled with that the Phillies made some moves this off season. You may have loved none of them were long-term things. They could get out of make a trade Santana if they want so. Yeah, we'll see you back clinic. We will see. But I don't believe that. He is awful. Not not yet. Let's grab dog. Who's in Connecticut? What's up? Doug. What's going on? Hey, buddy. Yeah. Just going to see if you agree with the statement, are we honestly gonna learn something about our our eagles team from playing the box because I think we are what are they were alert. I'll tell you what I think we could learn that maybe this year's defense because I mentioned earlier in the show last year of away from Philadelphia. They were not very good. There were there were good in spots, but mostly pedestrian or just decent away. Here. They were dominant. If they go down to Tampa, Doug, and they hold the bucks to fourteen or eighteen point seventeen points. Whatever I'll start to think maybe this year's defense is just going to be the way they play here everywhere. Yeah. I couldn't agree more. I mean, I think we can go for deep with four quality wide receivers. I think Sidney Jones. And of automatics like, you know, they're young. So that's gonna be something to watch. But I think we're gonna learn learn a lot about the secondary. And you know before the season started, oh, we're going to be playing the box, and we too. That's that's a game that we're expecting to win. We haven't we haven't lost a big game. Since what Seattle, and you let's not forget knows talking about their running game. I know they drafted Ronald Jones from USC. I don't think he played last week. But you know, he's dangerous. I was looking at him hopefully to draft him in the second round before they picked him up. I'm just I'm happy to games televised. Connecticut, I'm ready to go. I'll talk to you guys next week. You gotta Doug. Appreciate the folk. I've talked to Doug and a. Yeah. Look Ronald Jones. I liked him to come not USC. Fumbled the bunch of the preseason. So I don't know if he's in they're going to get a big workload. Did they didn't play last night? I did see seem last week when I was watching a little bit of that game. So they look they threw the ball over the place. There wasn't like they were running it on the saints. They threw it all over them. They have weapons you take Ronald Jones out. They they could throw. Oh, the bottle a lot of good receivers and tight ends. There are sure we'll see if the eagles defense on the road can hold it down eight hundred seventy nine ninety four ninety four pound nine four nine four on your T. And Verizon wireless cell phones. We'll come back your phone calls, and of course, stirs football coming up at eight. We'll talk to you guys on.

Don't like Gabe Kappler because he using words like chat instead of talk or because really what it is. He's, fit and he talks a certain way that's what it is he talks a certain way and it rubs people the wrong. Way were jealous, because of the way looks yeah they, would rather a fat baseball manager Kappler because he doesn't look easing fit the mold of a baseball mad at Patrick and f says if a player.

Players accountable and George Clinton marks you sound like a Kool aid drinking gay by take a breath and. Relax, here's the thing you don't know what he does behind closed doors so just because you're you're a Neanderthal and you want. Him to come, out at the press conference at dragon, in by his hair that's fine but you're in idiot that's not the way it works nobody does and professional baseball these days this gave Bill too. Far with. The positively yeah sure he. Does does it nausea people sometimes Sherry does I'm getting people. Calling and saying they don't come down to, the baseball, park, because of gives press conferences it's. Ridiculous and, silly thank you though that. When he got Matthew Hey I just want to talk about. You know gave capital real quick and a lot of course you did to the things that I say good no way people it. Really isn't. Baseball oriented to an. Extent I mean there's some something. Might catch people but we would have dual I is he did this to other. Managers, the. Defense of. Liability always has, been, and, will be. So that's not only gate he's only good Layton games ever balls hit at the top of the wall. He's the guy won't. Go on and. Get it other than that Terrible at center field. And that's not all gay. That's just how he is, the way to gauge speaks and I know a. Court talked about it earlier he is very precise in his essence Not pronounced. The thing that gets under people's, skin over time it just does. It it's like an infomercial. Is extremely fit and that others people agreed you know it's always a culmination, of all these things when they hear, his press, conference it just makes people head exploded baseball goes out the window if the guy had a little bit of a Delco accident or jersey twang it might. Not bother people as much but they they. Take the littlest miniscule thing that. Really is nothing like not ripping guys out in public and they they tear it and stretching and, is humongous problem but it. Has nothing to do with baseball it's they don't like. The guy he would be if he's out at. A bar with a beer with you That is funny because it's not only topical it's also accurate that's why we And that bothers people he doesn't seem genuine so, when he side with people want him to tear boy and go. Nuts on that would come off as so. Think because that's. Not it's not Guy 'cause it's fake you know I agree I'll, say that Yes Best? Club Great call man run Like seriously does he feel like a phony gave capital you I, don't think he's a phony phony I just think We're still getting annoy man. That's what it is we're still getting to know him, and I think you're to, that people at this stuff a goal where everybody's heading it'll be, every come normal is because now you if they win he's.

Don't blame Mike Trout for Major League Baseball's problems
"Would that be a reason Because they were rusty what kind of lame weak excuse is that, and? That that's probably my biggest issue With with Gabe Kappler and again I know, he's an engaging guy and he's a nice guy and he follows all, those ridiculous analytic numbers and I it's just they, roll out these numbers and they talk about the the you. Can find a number that. Can support anything but we know the Phillies are not a good offensive. Team I think it's pretty. Clear they're not a good offensive. Team with the way they play the game I'm gonna give you a I'm gonna give you another interesting and this will blow your mind with how the, Commissioner who was asinine for making for criticizing Mike trout because he said he doesn't want to market, himself which is really foolish. To even it's foolish to say. That because he does what he should do whatever he wants to do he's the best player in? Baseball he's the best player in baseball But here is where the. Game has got a problem and I know it's different and strikeouts are. Now accepted in baseball the. All star game twenty five strikeouts. Ten home runs and nine singles that was the game and it was easier to home runs even though you're facing good pitchers because for the most part, you know they're gonna throw a fastball the first pitch which is not an from analytics you're not, supposed to swing at the. First pitch here is and this. Was in New York Post story Aaron judge not quite two full seasons in major. League baseball has struck out three. Hundred. And eighty two times not even two seasons yet in thirteen. Seasons thirteen Joe.
Britney Spears Releases Trailer For 'Prerogative,' A Gender-Neutral Fragrance
"If I if Ben Simmons opens. Up you gotta make that move Rachel because we're talking heartthrobs. Because, Carson what's got married that. Was the that was the big guys so many people oh he's so cute and whatever like that's. That's what I've heard a lot. Family parties talking to? People? In the tailgate and whatever and, now he's off the market. So who is that heartthrob we got vote for Ben Simmons which, I, think is. Interesting eight eight eight seven to nine ninety four, ninety four pound nine four nine four now another, thing that this is kind of random but why not Britney Spears is making. Cologne now and apparently it's it's gender-neutral, fragrance? Which is supposed to be a big deal I'm of. Surprised it took this long right it's Arthur so many smells that just, anybody could wear is it only. A man or a woman that can smell like. Oranges, they can smell like lemon lime I just I assumed it was already. A thing Blown away by the. Idea that it wasn't suddenly this is, a new thing on the market this neutral Cologne that men and women can both. Wear and it's never been done before or it's just never. Really, happens I don't care I've. Had points where I go to my girlfriend's house and I don't have body wash or whatever I. Put on her I'm smelling lavender. Something at the end? It? Doesn't matter no it's like that's, a girl smell or maybe. They just expect that for me but just not a big deal, it, was of. Surprised that gender gender neutral perfume is like this, new big thing and Britney Spears is killing the, market on it good for her but it just seems weird I don't know. People I think anybody could smell like, oranges? Or lemons or whatever they want to smell like it's. Really not a big deal whatever let's go back to sports let's talk, to Newark what's up John hey. That's how you doing all right how are you Good Think about, Machado and I understand that you don't even think that it's not just because you're. Okay, yes throwing out some, prospects they're core that we have, now so I understand, that but does anything kind of Away, from Machado also expressing, heavy interest in joining he's Well, not really just because once you sign. Machado it's over he's going to be here for forever so I want to trust that Middleton is going to be able to outbid the Yankees because they do have. Stanton because they do have judge all the big contracts the Yankees have their, one of the higher payrolls. In baseball, and the Phillies the twenty-third payroll in. Baseball so they're they're, really low right now in Middleton he can just frankly you can just pay more than the Yankees. Cat Right but I. Mean if, you're in my opinion if your heart's. With Yankees and you're, talking about maybe a fifty million dollar you know Spread right there for somebody that's already going to get three hundred, plus million You think that, that fifty million, it's gonna. Keep. Them, for playing where he wants to play where he's, expressed play twenty yeah well I. Think so if the environment's good enough here that's the thing you have to you. Have to also trust the. Six or the the sixth of the Phillies environment you have. To trust Kappler you have to trust the guys like Hoskins in Nolan. Santana it just seems like the. Vibe of this team is not very territorial it seems, like they get. Along they've got smoked machines going off when. They win games like it's fun it's it's fun to play. Baseball in Philly Kappler listens to his players in his very. Open with them I just think all of. That stuff lines up as well and so it's culture end its. Money end it's the miliary with Glenn tech and macphail and all those guys so I look at all together and it just paints a picture for me where he's not going anywhere Gotcha What thank you just, mentioned Bryce. Harper this off. Season I don't want to go after braces off. One go after. Trout I mean it's hard to argue that Harper's great but he's had. A down year and Mike trout is the Philly. Guy and he's these be might. Be, the greatest player of all, time he..
