Phillies manager Gabe Kapler gets into fiery exchange with WIP’s Angelo Cataldi over ‘disrespectful’ remarks

“Basically, Matt Klentak in the three years that he’s been here has put two people on the roster that are true building blocks … Rhys Hoskins and Aaron Nola,” Cataldi said, turning his criticism toward Kapler’s coaching.

“You’ve got Rhys Hoskins playing in left field when he has a terrible WAR (wins above replacement), should be at first base. You’re putting [Carlos Santana] who was originally a catcher as your third baseman, showing a complete contempt for defense,” Cataldi said. “When I write what I write, Gabe, it’s represented by hundreds of people who think the way I am. So you’re perception may be real positive about the team, but that doesn’t mean it’s reality. It’s only your perception.”

Even Mr. Sunshine, Gabe Kapler, thinks the Phillies are playing ‘sh—-y’ baseball

Prolonged exposure to Philadelphia will break any man!

DENVER – General manager Matt Klentak collected his thoughts and said, “There’s no other way to say it, the last six weeks have been awful.”

And that was before the Phillies’ first eight hitters struck out Wednesday night, before the moribund team suffered its seventh straight defeat in an uncompetitive 14-0 loss to the Colorado Rockies.

Even usually upbeat manager Gabe Kapler couldn’t come up with anything positive after the team’s latest embarrassing loss.
