No doubt, the upper management was feeling empowered by Yost’s successful drive to second place this past season. It’s a bit easy to make fun of Yost, considering his losing record as a manager and how he failed to hold an 8 1/2 game lead over the Cubs. However, that might be a touch unfair. I mean, he was a catcher when he was a major league player, and those guys are always great managers.
