Discussion in 'Philadelphia Phillies' started by northeastphillyguy, Jul 8, 2018.
Klentak is practicing, “....ah, Gabe, can we talk?”
How ‘bout those Nats! I guess we don’t have to feel so bad about getting knocked on our asses in that last five game series in DC.
Kapler is out the door but didn't take Hoskins with him.
Hoskins should improve with Flex out of picture.
We shall see Northeast. The bigger issue is the Phillies have a bunch of players who we are still waiting to improve. It is a system belief the Phillies have to remedy because it leads to their tendency of ignoring better players in favor of those dumpster-diving gems they seem to be consistently attracted to when they are changing rosters.
Saw the conference today. Middleton talked up a storm. Klentak was Klentak.
Math is his master. I fear that we will pass on real type managers. In order to have a real improvement Klentak must be cut loose!
I agree with firing Kapler because even though the Phils had tough luck with key injuries like McCutchen and a poor pitching staff, he had no experience, and didn't seem to be a real baseball guy with a feel for the game.
I think inexperienced Klentak, who hired Gabe, should also be gone. He passed on available FA pitchers like Kluber and Corbin, and his dumpster dives couldn't make up for that. How the heck will he improve the Phillies.
Kurt Shilling is interested the vacancy with the Phillies. That would be a good signing as manager. Better snap him up because he is also interested in s pitching coach position with the Red Socks.
Can he spare the time away from his shrink?
Looks like we will get Showalter or Girardi. Hope it's Joe!
Hope he gets a 10-year. May take that long to fix the pitching staff.
Baker reportedly meets with Phillies for 2nd time
better get a deal done with girardi today. if they let him leave.. complete failure. he can easily be the manager for the next decade. i trust his skills and ability to lead a team.
Better get Joe!
Just heard that Showalter does not like Harper! Better get Joe now!
i've never understood why people don't like harper. loved the way he handled it when hamels hit him on purpose to "welcome him" to the league. he's always been a hustle, pump up the crowd, hard working type guy. he was a perfect sign for this city.
I have to admit, the first thing I thought of is that Girardi or Baker leaked that little nugget of info.
Or Showalter really doesn't want the job and that was his opening line....
Baker has had a return interview so it appears he is the front runner but can't this dumbass find a decent manager from its Irons Pigs farm team? These re-treads are getting old, literally!
