Yost Goes All Bissinger


Ned Yost was none to happy about a blog post that claimed he was moments from getting canned by the Brewers. Parts of the post was later reprinted in the Sentinel Journal's Brewers Blog.

While Milwaukee GM Doug Melvin chose to brush off the notions surrounding his manager's employment status as "erroneous Internet rumors," Yost chose to launch into what was described by the Sentinal Journal as a "mild tirade/venting session" that included "un-publishable words."

Yost: "It's not right. Blogs and the talk radio show guys, it's fun, but they don't have all the information. To sit back and criticize and talk about certain situations and they don't have all the information, now that's where it gets hard to listen or give it much credability. It's a joke. There's no legitimacy there at all, and we put it on the Internet for everybody to see and raise havoc. It's a joke. It's not fair and it's not right."

It's true -- we don't have all of the information.

For instance, I don't know, when Yost is watching Ben Sheets give up six earned in a third of an inning with rockets going all over the yard, in his third start off the DL when he's plainly out of gas...

Whether Yost is (a) eating paste straight from the jar, (b) eating paste on toast, or (c) mixing paste into a smoothie. I'd like to think (a), given that it's the best visual and Yost seems like a traditionalist, but I just don't know.

Similarly, when I'm watching the Brewers kill their pitchers with the worst defensive infield in MLB for the second straight year, whether Yost has (a) his thumb up his ass, (b) his whole hand up his ass, or (c) someone else's whole hand up his ass. My guess is (c), because Yost seems to like to delegate, but I just don't know.

And finally, when he's trotting out Eric Gagne into pressure situations despite the fact that Gagne has a large fork protruding from his spine that makes it very difficult to engage in air travel... I don't know if Yost should be (a) fired, (b) euthanized, or (c) given a lifetime contract, paid for by the other teams in the NL Comedy Central.

Once again, bloggers just don't have enough information. Thanks for gracing us with your wisdom, you paste-eating mongoloid assclown!

DMtShooter, feeling the love
