Phillies name Kapler next manager
Kapler is a progressive thinker. He has written for Baseball Prospectus, a sabermetric website, and there's no question the next Phillies manager had to embrace and be willing to implement analytics into his decision-making, both on and off the field. The Phillies have invested heavily the past two years into analytics. Kapler also has a lifestyle blog that touts fitness, nutrition and mental health, and the Phillies have invested resources lately into nutrition and sports psychology.
