SB Nation FanPulse: Phillies fans are in a pretty good place mentally

To start off the season, anyway.

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Philadelphia Phillies Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send 30 polls to plugged in fans from each team. Phillies fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

Phillies fans were asked this week if they had high hopes for the Phillies going all the way. The answer... may surprise you.

The outlook for the team in general was even more positive:

Are you confident in the direction of the team: 100% Yes

Turns out acquiring a bunch of all-stars on top of Aaron Nola and Rhys Hoskins is enough to make people think you’re going the right way,

Do you approve of the job your team’s manager is doing: 77%

Wow, even Gabe Kapler, a frequent target of this city’s vitriol for real and imagined reasons, has over a three-quarters majority in the polls. That’s how you can tell it’s the beginning of the season: Nobody’s roasting Kapler in the comments yet.
