Gabe Kapler Fired as SF Giants General Manager (2024)

Gabe Kapler Fired as SF Giants General Manager (1)

Apparently, he walked into work yesterday in full uniform, then walked out minutes later.

I like him better out of uniform. I'll comfort him.

He was a lousy GM, but I give him credit for being a staunch supporter of LGBTQ+ rights.

Every year, when Oracle Park had Pride Day, he was front and center praising the gay community and was always grateful for their support.

He’s not just a supporter, he’s a member.

R7 Yes. He was a great player, but not a great manager.

Needless to say this is all the talk in Giants baseball circles.

Firing a manager 3 games before the end of the season is unheard of. It's absolutely humiliating. They must have something on him. Some people think it's drugs, or he's been me-tooed. When he was hired by the Giants 4 years ago there was controversy because of his handling of a sexual assault incident by a Dodgers minor league player, or his lack of handling it.

His dismissal was expected, as a poster said he was a sh*t manager. Anytime baseball players make veiled references to a poor clubhouse culture you know it's much worse than they're saying..

Poor Gabe. I thought his managerial career tanked when he managed the Phillies and was unceremoniously dumped by the team and driven out of town by Philly's notoriously nasty fans.

He wasn't popular here at all. Philly just isn't into new agey pretty boys.

Quite big tit*. I thought he was a fantastic manager—what a season.

R9 Full disclosure here. I work for the Giants. Everybody was speculating about what actually happened yesterday. Few of us expected that he'd be back next year, but nobody expected he'd be canned with just three games left in the season, and just before a game with the Dodgers, too! That's like rubbing salt in the wound.

Most people think there was something contentious or pretty damaging going on behind the scenes.

Interestingly, just a few months ago, former player Buster Posey just moved his family back to the Bay Area, so there's speculation he'll be the Giants' new GM in 2024.

Kapler was the manager, not the general manager. They’re two different jobs.

From SFGate: "Whether you like Gabe Kapler or not — and plenty of Giants fans do not, either because of his perceived overreliance on analytics, or his somewhat off-putting personality, or his sometimes pseudo-philosophical answers to questions after games — it’s entirely clear that he’s the sacrificial lamb here."

Every time I'd see Kapler's post-game press conference I'd think, "What a sour drip" (even when they'd won). He seemed to take no joy in anything. Pretty sure I never (or rarely) saw him smile in the dugout or elsewhere. Of course, managers don't have to be tap-dancing vaudevillians, but, c'mon, perk up, man. (And who was that little GK MiniMe who I'd occasionally see hovering near him in the dugout?)

R67 I was working one of the private clubs at Oracle Park, and after the game he came in to hang out with some of the Giants execs. I would best describe him as "guarded." He wasn't unfriendly, but he wasn't gregarious, either. All business. I can see where people would read that as joyless, though.

R2 I bartended at Oracle Park last year, and there was a group of fans who were drinking heavily throughout the game. When they had gotten so drunk that they could barely stand up, I cut them off. They got enraged and started calling me "fa*ggot" and "fudge packer," among other things. They were ejected from the park, since Oracle has a zero tolerance policy for discrimination.

A week later, I received a letter, signed by Gabe Kapler, apologizing on behalf of the organization for what happened and praising me for making the right decision. I will always remember that kind gesture.
