‘The Heat Ratio’ Episode 16: Is Gabe Kapler too much too soon?

With all the noise surrounding the Eagles and their Super Bowl run people forgot to go deep inside the mind of Gabe Kapler.

Is he just following the trend of MLB or trying to create his own trend too soon? Don’t we have to give him a chance?

Even though his peers think it’s ridiculous that he is favored to win, could he pull of the unthinkable? Are you rooting for a Tiger/Phil showdown?
