I’m looking forward to seeing what type of reception Gabe Kapler will receive from Phillies fans at Thursday’s home opener.
I assume he makes it that far, right?
Is it too early for the Phillies to fire Gabe Kapler?

Should be interesting. Anyway, I know exactly what type of reception the man set to throw out the first pitch will get because that man is DOUG PEDERSON:
Doug Pederson will throw out the first pitch Thursday at Phillies home opener.

Is there any doubt that he paints the outside corner with an 84mph fastball right at the knees? Didn’t think so.
If the Phillies have a sense of humor, perhaps they will consider having Kapler go to the mound to remove Pederson after the pitch and signal for Thursday’s scheduled starter Nick Pivetta. Of course, they just need to make sure that he’s warmed up.
