Gabe Kapler defends Phillies’ coaching staff after seventh straight loss

Gabe Kapler

The Philadelphia Phillies lost their seventh consecutive game on Sunday, falling 6.5 games behind the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves. It has raised questions about manager Gabe Kapler and his coaching staff, but Kapler was not entertaining those questions after the defeat.

Kapler defended his coaching staff, saying that the team had the “right personnel” but win and lose as a team.

It’s pretty obvious that Kapler is frustrated, and it’s easy to understand why. Expected to be a major NL contender before the season, they are just one game above .500, and their stars are scuffling. It may not all be on Kapler and his staff, but coaches usually take the fall for underperformance, fairly or not, as they’re easier to get rid of.
