Giants’ Gabe Kapler playing popular video game to help stay in managerial shape

With Major League Baseball on hiatus, Giants manager Gabe Kapler and his staff are using a cornucopia of technologies to stay on top of the game and keep players as ready as they can be, including videos, statistical tools, video games, virtual-meeting sites and …

Wait. Back up a minute. Video games?

Indeed.

Kapler said he and some of his coaches are employing a PlayStation baseball game called “MLB: The Show” to study tendencies of major-league players, an idea suggested by hitting coach Justin Viele.

Things are going to be rough on us Giants fans if the team ever takes the field again, aren’t they?

i don't even think kapler was bad at the job, but he was pretty ####### insufferable.

To be fair, he did have to deal with the Sweathogs every day.

On the other hand, despite being very dead, Juan has really been shooting up the Epstein leaderboard this past year.

"My son didn't mean to say that only 500 Americans would die from coronavirus. He really meant to say 500,000. Please excuse him for this error." - signed, Epstein's mother
