This is sure to go over well with the Phillies faithful. GM Matt Klentak went onto MLB Radio and emphatically backed his manager saying, “I love Kap.”
"I love Kap."

Our own Bob Wankel has been beating the drum for
weeks months that Kapler has done an admirable job of leading a group with massive holes and talent deficiencies this season, leaving those latter concerns at the feet of Klentak. Regardless of where you stand on Kapler/Klentak dynamic, I think it’s fair to say that the comments don’t come at the best time with the Phillies having dropped consecutive games to the NL East rival Mets. Either way, I’m sure Bob and Anthony will have plenty of thoughts on Monday’s Crossed Up Radio on 610 ESPN Philadelphia from 5-6PM.
