Philadelphia Phillies' Alec Bohm about last night words: I said it. Do I mean it? No

Philadelphia Phillies' Alec Bohm did not have a great night in the match against the New York Mets, although his team won 5-4. Bohm could not catch the rhythm and he turned in three mistakes in the game’s first three innings.

It was clear that he had to take the game to the next level. What surprised many was that Bohm was caught on camera at one point saying: “I (freaking) hate this place,” Of course, immediately after the match, ESPN reporters asked Bohm if he really said that: "I said it.

Do I mean it? No," Bohm said. Bohm, however, seems to have said this in anger and did not intend to offend anyone. Frustrated by his mistakes and results, Bohm reacted impulsively but explained his reaction. The reaction was 'under the influence of adrenaline "It's a frustrating night for me, obviously.

Made a few mistakes in the field. Look, these people, these fans, they just want to win. You heard it, we come back, they're great. I'm just sorry to them. I don't mean that."

Joe Girardi on Bohm's reaction

Phillies manager Joe Girardi also stood up in defense of his player and denied that Bohm meant specifically the Philadelphia city and fans.

"I think it's a kid that was frustrated," Phillies manager Joe Girardi said. "I don't think that kid was referring to, you know, the city of Philadelphia, the fans. I think he was referring to the situation he was in. Put yourself in his shoes." Just before the match, Girardi announced that Bohm will play instead of Scott because he had a great performance against Taijuan Walker before.

"He's had success off of Walker," Girardi said. "And as I said, they're both going to play. I think it's important they both play." We will see if this reaction will bother the fans, or if they will accept Bohm's apology.
