Sorry that I didn't write this sooner but I was away in London when the Phils announced on October 30th that former major league ballplayer Gabe Kapler was named as the new manager. Kapler has worked the last three seasons as the director of player development for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Kapler replaces Pete Mackanin to become the 54th manager in the history of the Phillies organization. I wish Kapler luck as the new Phils skipper.
Talk to you soon,
