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.
