While providing color commentary for Saturday's Cardinals-Brewers game on Fox Sports 1, Gabe Kapler stated that it was "poetic justice" that Brewers' catcher Jonathan Lucroy would start behind the plate for the National League in Tuesday's All-Star game. Obviously, it didn't get past too many Cardinals fans, who by Saturday night let Kapler know they didn't appreciate his choice of words. In response to the backlash, Kapler wrote a quick letter to Cardinals fans owning and explaining his commentary. Here's what the text says: Obviously, that was a compliment directed at Lucroy and the season he's had. He's one of my favorite men to watch and perhaps the catcher I respect the most in baseball, not only for his productivity, but also for his consistent fire.
