Is this Rafael Palmeiro or Ned Yost?....it is difficult to tell behind the caterpillar. Royals manager Ned Yost on their 3-14 start:  the ”adversity” of a 3-14 start is the “fertilizer for maturity and growth.”    This comes from the same guy that would tell the media that “Soup pitched well”, when describing Jeff Suppan giving up 5 runs in 5 innings while managing the Milwaukee Brewers. Ned, I think PR is beyond your scope of abilities.  Combine your PR crapability and your out-of-the-gate-blazin’-hot start, and you’ve racked up enough street cred to land the losersbracket.com “loser of the week” award. Congrats Ned!!
