Michael Brantley: The Ned Yost And Dale Sveum Connection.

With the Kansas City Royals in Cleveland and Ned Yost as their manager, it is the perfect time to thank both him and 3rd base coach Dale Sveum for allowing Michael Brantley to become an Indian. On July 7th, 2008 the Indians traded former CY Young award winner, C.C. Sabathia to the Milwaukee Brewers for a former first-round draft pick and a fabulous power hitter at Double-A Huntsville...

The Kansas City Royals Need Ned Yost

Gigabytes upon gigabytes have been devoted to how terrible a manager Ned Yost is. Blogs and podcasts and newspapers parse every word of Yost’s twice-daily press conferences. Domes and ball boys and bullpen phones all receive their just scrutinization as they have all been named by Edgar Yost as excuses for one thing or another. As a Major League manager, Yost has a .472 winning...

Butler is likely headed back to cleanup spot

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- When Royals manager Ned Yost dropped Billy Butler out of the cleanup spot early last week, Butler did not view the decision as a demotion. "Even if I didn't agree with it -- and I did agree with it -- there are times the manager has to do what is best for me and the ball club," Butler said. "That was the case there." Yost moved Sal Perez...

Twins' offense sporadic in Saturday road loss

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Royals manager Ned Yost turned to pitching coach Dave Eiland in the fifth inning Saturday and told him that Kansas City was going to have to protect a one-run lead against Minnesota. The way his bullpen has been going, there was no need to worry. Danny Duffy, Wade Davis and Greg Holland allowed one walk and no hits over the final four innings, and the Royals held...

Royals' Yost still has faith in the struggling Tim Collins

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Hmmm. Would have been interesting if left-hander Tim Collins hadn't coughed up three more runs in the ninth (his ERA is now an unsightly 36.00) on Sunday. If Collins had done his job, the Royals could have sent this one in extra innings after rallying for a run in the bottom of the ninth. Instead the Royals fell 5-1, and now have dropped back under .500 at...

Yost on his Royals: "...they're not kids anymore"

The good news that came out of Surprise, Ariz., on Wednesday was that apparently, the Royals won't be using youth as an excuse any longer. Manager Ned Yost seemed to imply to reporters that he believes his troops are all grown up.

So, you might be thinking that Royals skipper Ned Yost will have a significant theme or message he'll convey to his troops this spring as they begin what is likely the most anticipated Royals season in decades. Nah, not really. "They don't need no messages, man," Yost told reporters in Surprise, Ariz. "They know they're ready. We won more games than anyone...

Is Ned Yost Giving the Royals the Best Chance to Win?

There is something strange going on inside of Kauffman Stadium. The Royals haven’t played great baseball this year and the biggest concern coming into the season was starting pitching. Yet surprisingly, the Royals have been saved by their pitching staff recently and doomed by their lack of offense. I am an avid listener of some local sports radio stations and I constantly hear...
