2019: The year in Philadelphia sports corrections | Bob Ford  The Philadelphia Inquirer

In a Sept. 25 column on the Phillies, Bob Ford wrote: “It might be that someone will still have to take the fall, just from a public-relations standpoint, for the disappointing result. Manager Gabe Kapler would be a handy scapegoat, of course, but Matt Klentak has been steadfast in his support of Kapler. Sure, he’s different, the general manager has said, but we think he’s a good kind of different. In all likelihood, the team will make a window-dressing move, such as firing pitching coach Chris Young, focus the blame on all the injuries and poor luck, and otherwise stand pat.”
