Kasten on Acta (Sort Of)

Via Chatter (c/o Washington Times.com):

"I think you all watched the game last night, and you watched us lose a game, and if you listed the reasons for why we lost the game, I don't think the manager would be anywhere on your list of reasons. So it's hard dealing with that. And yet, we have a record of 16-43, which is, to me, inexplicable. So that's how I feel."

Asked if he supports Acta as manager, Kasten said:"We always support everyone here, and we always will. We're all in this together, trying to win everyday, trying to turn it around, and we're going to continue to try it. We know the future is bright, but we're not going to wait for the future to get here. We're going to do everything we can to speed it up. We've done that with kind of a frenetic movement of personnel pieces in the early part of the season. We're going to keep searching for the solution until we find it."

Kasten defends his field manager in the first phrase, acknowledging the deficiencies of the team as it was constructed, but goes on to imply in the next sentence that the organization is willing to make changes when they deem necessary.

So, consider the situation no more illuminated than before Ken Rosenthal opened this particular can of worms on television today.
