Rupp’s tenure is Philadelphia needs to be coming to a close. He has consistently shown that he is below average at calling a game and it’s clear he can’t make it up with the bat.
Rupp hit .160 over his last 7 games, striking out 10 times in the process. That brings his average to .204 on the year.
It seems as if it’s time to start weening playing time away from Rupp as we move towards the second half of the season.
