Ned Yost can’t get comfortable, and it’s hurting the Royals
Ned Yost can’t get comfortable. He’s not quite rocking back and forth in the dugout like former Atlanta Braves’ pitching coach Leo Mazzone, but he certainly can’t sit still. He keeps trying to tweak and massage and basically game his way into a win.
Some of his moves have been very successful, backed by legitimate statistics, but there comes a point when you need to consider whether what’s right in a given game situation is right for the team at this moment in the season. In the midst of a 10-game losing streak, the Kansas City Royals look as unsettled as their manager’s lineup card, and without some stability, this is a ship that will continue to reel.
