Yost goes away from the book, but that doesn't work, either

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Well, you can't blame Royals manager Ned Yost for this one. Yost was widely criticized for not using Kelvin Herrera in the sixth inning Sunday when Boston's Daniel Nava blasted a grand slam off Aaron Crow that wiped out a Royals' lead and led to a Royals' loss. Yost explained then that Crow was his sixth-inning guy and Herrera was his seventh-inning...

Butler not talking to media but Yost says his attitude remains great

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The most affable and talkative player on the Royals isn't speaking much these days, at least not to the media. Billy Butler, whose role has been significantly reduced since Eric Hosmer returned from injury Sept. 1, normally has always seemed more than willing to share his thoughts with reporters. But in the past week, Butler has politely declined requests...

The only way Ned Yost makes sense for the Royals

Ned Yost is used to fans being mad at him. Back in 2008, he was the manager of the Brewers, and ran an article centered around his unpopularity: "I could do four hours of Ned Yost every day if I wanted to," says Steve "The Homer" True, the host of a drive time radio sports talk show in Milwaukee. "It's impossible to overstate how much [many fans...

Ned Yost Is The Worst Manager, Except For All The Other Managers

If you looked at Twitter for even half a second on Sunday, you probably already know that Ned Yost is doing it again. Nearly six years to the day after the Brewers took the nearly unprecedented step of firing a first-place manager in September, at least in part due to some extreme bullpen mismanagement, Yost’s decisions […]

Gross Negligence

Credit: Rick Osentoski We may have just reached critical mass on the Fire Ned Yost movement!   Evidence #1: Clinging to the slimest of leads in the 6th inning today, Ned could not deviate from his normal protocol to adapt to a situation.  With runners at 2nd and 3rd and 1 out Ned desperately needed a strikeout.  And coming up was a strikeout candidate Yoenis Cespedes.  Since...

Guthrie, Infante Lead Royals Over Sox

Believe it or not, Ned Yost’s lineup of desperation worked, and Yost made me eat my words ( I am completely okay with that. The offense tonight exploded for seven runs, and left the Kansas City fan base with a little bit of hope. Alcides Escobar wasted no time in the bottom of the first with a leadoff double. Nori Aoki then singled him in, and later...

Your AL Manager of the Year ... Ned Yost?

Take a quick look at the AL Central standings, then look away. If you didn't look closely enough, you may have missed the part where the Kansas City Royals are sitting atop the division—1.5 games ahead of the Detroit Tigers. When you compare the rosters one thing is abundantly clear: The Tigers, on paper, have an edge at just about every position. Their rotation, while aging...

Yost: Royals may have caved under pressure of large crowds

Less than a week after Ned Yost ripped Kansas City fans for not showing up to games when their team is in a pennant race, the Royals manager wondered over the weekend if playing in front of such a large crowd was an issue for his players. The Royals lost a couple of crucial games […]

Royals Manager Ned Yost Hammers Kansas City Fans For Poor Attendance

The Kansas City Royals had their best win in a very long time on Tuesday night. However, only a relative handful of Royals fans saw the pivotal game. Alex Gordon continued his unlikely MVP candidacy with a two-run walkoff home run to give the Royals the win and helped them get even closer to their first playoff bid in almost 30 years. However, only 13,847 fans watched the Royals...
