Matt Klentak Press Conference
PHILADELPHIA — The Phillies have spent the past couple weeks trying to explain why they collapsed the final two months of the 2018 season.
They have offered several theories, but the simplest explanation may be best: perhaps the Phillies simply needed better talent. Phillies general manager Matt Klentak essentially acknowledged that point Monday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park, where he offered his thoughts on the season, including why Phillies manager Gabe Kapler, needed to make so many lineups and pitching changes throughout the year.
“This team just rolled out there in a conventional style would not have made the playoffs,” Klentak said. “In fact, it would have been worse than this year’s team. The fact that we’ve outperformed our run differential as much as we have I think speaks to the fact that we probably did pretty well in the area of putting our players in the best positions to succeed.
As the roster evolves and we have more ‘regular players,’ I think you’ll see that less and less. But the roster this year kind of dictated that that’s the way we behave, and we will adjust that behavior moving forward as necessary.”
