Ned Yost Says Ignore Spousal Abuse

Let's say you have a neighbor. Let's say you witness that neighbor bum rush and pummel his spouse. Ned Yost thinks you best mind your own damn business.

By now you've seen the highlights of Prince Fielder going after Manny Parra. If you haven't, here you go...

What really struck me was the asinine analogy the Brewer's coach associated the in-dugout attack with.

"It's not a big deal. For eight months a year, we're a family. At times things happen, flare up, but it's between the family. It's in the family. It's a little bit rude when your neighbors are fighting next door for you to go knock on the door and ask what happened. We handle it ourselves. It's between us and it's nobody's business. But it wasn't that big a deal."

Got that, Nosey Nelly? Next time you witness an assault, pretend like it never happened. Snitches get stitches.
