Gabe Kapler will not let job speculation change managerial style

Gabe Kapler

The struggling Philadelphia Phillies are in serious danger of missing the playoffs after an offseason of major investment, but manager Gabe Kapler isn’t worrying about what that might mean for his job.

Kapler said Wednesday that he won’t “manage scared” no matter what is said about his job security.

“I’m not going to manage scared,” Kapler told Angelo Cataldi and the Morning Team of 94 WIP. “I didn’t play scared. I fought and gave everything I had every single day. You’re going to manage in the same way. So, if I get fired I do and it’ll be a hard day for me to deal with, but I’m not going to waste a single ounce of my mental or emotional energy thinking about myself when I could be thinking about how I could help us win tonight’s game. The players, those 25 men battling out there, those are the ones that matter.”

Kapler and his coaches got a huge vote of confidence earlier in the season, but as things haven’t turned around, changes were made. It remains to be seen if there are larger ones to come.
