Yost goes away from the book, but that doesn't work, either

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Well, you can't blame Royals manager Ned Yost for this one. Yost was widely criticized for not using Kelvin Herrera in the sixth inning Sunday when Boston's Daniel Nava blasted a grand slam off Aaron Crow that wiped out a Royals' lead and led to a Royals' loss.

Royals Drop Game Two 4-1

There aren’t too many games that have warranted the use of the phrase, “Yosted” as of late. This would be one of those games.

In fact, Ventura seemed to be improving as the game went on, so naturally Yost decided to bring him out for one more inning. It wasn’t a horrible...

The A’s scored eight runs today, so you can’t tell me that they missed Cespedes…. For today at least. Today, they had no trouble scoring runs against a troubled Royals defense. At the beginning of the fifth inning...
