Watch: Bryce Harper takes responsibility for Phillies firing coach

Technically, Harper is not wrong. He heads into Tuesday’s action hitting just .250 with a .372 on-base percentage. Harper also leads the National League with a whopping 137 strikeouts.

As a team, the Phillies rank 12th in batting average, 10th in on-base percentage and ninth in the NL in runs scored.

Something had to be done with Philadelphia boasting a 60-58 record and having lost seven of its past 10 games. Mallee ultimately became the fall guy. Harper appears to recognize this.
