Ned Yost had an eventful day on Tuesday. The Kansas City Royals manager says security swarmed him when he was taking a jog nearby where the Kansas City Chiefs practice at the Truman Sports Complex.

“I almost got arrested for taking a peek at the Chiefs doing their minicamp,” Yost said per The Kansas City Star. “They surrounded me with security. I’m not going to sell any secrets. They were fine once they figured out who I was.”

Yost apparently was going to pop in and say hello to new Chiefs coach Andy Reid when the site of helmeted players caught his eye. He said he stopped to see what was going on and security go on him quickly.

In addition to the brush with Chiefs security, The Star says Yost had to submit a random drug test for MLB before the team’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals.

So let me get this straight: Yost was nearly arrested, drug tested, and his team has lost six in a row and 10 of 11? It ain’t easy in KC.


Yost's frustration evident after Royals' latest loss

Brett hire gives Yost a reprieve

On Wednesday, I wrote that the Royals were in denial, seemingly unable to admit that change was necessary. Well, they admitted it Thursday, admitted it in a big way by naming Hall of Famer George Brett as their interim hitting coach. Whether Brett will succeed in his new role is an open question. The effect on manager Ned Yost also will be interesting, seeing as how it was Yost...

Yost runs afoul of Chiefs security while jogging

Yost said he was jogging near the Kansas City Chiefs' training complex, a short distance from Kauffman Stadium, when he thought about stopping...

Is Yost toast in KC?

The teams that drive me crazy are the ones that are in denial, performing poorly yet operating in their own little universe, acting as if only they know what is best. The Orioles were like that for a long time. So were the Pirates. The Astros are like that now, but get the benefit of the doubt because they just started to rebuild. The Royals have lost the benefit of the doubt....

George Brett Back In A Royals Uniform... As A Hitting Coach

The Kansas City Royals are officially a desperate team.  After Wednesday night’s 5-3 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals the Royals have lost eight straight games and have won only 4 of their last 23 games. Right now K-C stinks. Manager Ned Yost still is employed but his coaching staff was shook up.  Hitting coaches Jack Maloof and Andre David have been reassigned to the Minor...

Royals hitting coach: No reward for swinging for the fences

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Near the top of the frustration list for Kansas City Royals fans is the complete lack of power from the team's lineup over the last two years. The Royals finished tied for last in 2012 in home runs with just 131, and perhaps not coincidentally, they were 12th in runs scored. So, manager Ned Yost decided a switch in hitting philosophy was in order. Out went...

Royals' hitting coach doesn't want his players to try to hit homers

(EDITOR'S NOTE: It was announced after the writing of this post that Jack Maloof was relieved of his hitting coach duties and replaced on an interim basis by George Brett) The Kansas City Royals are once again a disappointment. After an off-season of aggressive trades and signings, they had hoped to compete in the AL Central. That plan hasn't worked out at all as the...

Things are getting weird in Royals Nation

Remember when the Royals were 17-10 and near the top of the A. L. Central? It seems like a lifetime ago, doesn’t it? But now the team is in a free-fall and things are getting strange. No, I’m not talking about the lack of offense or the losing streak. That’s business as usual for the Royals. I’m talking about the wacky things happening off the field. Take Royals manager...
