‘I HAVE TO DO A BETTER JOB,’ SAYS PHILS KAPLER ECHOING ANDY REID!

By Sam Bush

Gabe Kapler has done a fantastic job managing the Phillies this season:

It’s Aug. 13 and they are only one percentage point out of first place in the NL East — Atlanta is 64-51 for a .557 winning percentage compared to the Phils’ 65-52 and .556.

But every once in a while he lapses into the corporate post-game speak that reminds us of the Eagles’ metronomic Andy Reid.

Such as after yesterday’s 9-3 loss at San Diego:

“We didn’t execute the fundamentals today,” said Kapler, who wanted to speak to the players involved before going into further specifics. “That’s on me. I have to do a better job of getting us prepared to play and to execute the fundamentals of this game. So that one’s on me. … It’s my job to help the players set the tone and be on top of their game all the time.”
