Phillies manager and contemporary sex symbol Gabe Kapler was on “MLB Now” with Brian Kenny.
He talks about the Phils’ offseason and the acquisitions of Jean Segura and Andrew McCutchen, before getting into Bryce Harper around the two minute mark:
“I think we bonded over stuff like training, I think we bonded over food – he loves food and Philadelphia has an incredible food scene, among the best in the country if you ask me. I think we just hit it off. He’s an easy guy to talk to and he certainly is especially competitive. We joked a little bit about a moment on the field in September, when he was able to get an umpire to change a call.”
Kapler is right. We do have a great food scene. We’ve got places like Vetri, Fork, and Suraya. And just up the street from me you can find a Taco Bell, Applebee’s, and Panda Express.
