Brewers manager Ned Yost fired!

What did you expect. They can make anything happen.

He must have ticked them off somehow.

G.C.

To me it's insane he built them into a decent team improving each year at the helm.

12 games to go and they fire him I don't care how bad he was that's just NUTS!

the team got swept by philly to tie for the wild card spot, they are still in the race, very strange.

Maybe those foam rubber cheese things they put on their heads are a little too tight.

I have no problem seeing him getting canned but don't like the timing - do it soon after the break or after the seasons over. The crew has and still makes too many 'little league' mistakes, both by the players and coaches. And mistakes by players need to be addressed and fixed by coaches. Mistakes by coaches need the attention of higher management, which is what just happened. It will be a shame if they don't make the playoffs.

You follow the Brew Crew much closer then we do and I know you and others have had concerns with his managing in the past and particularly this year but the timing is strange.

Hopefully it lites a fire and the Brew Crew can turn it around here quickly!

He built them into a decent team? He was the manager, not the GM. Melvin, Attanasio, and Zduriencik are the ones responsible for building the team.

And Flatlander is probably right, 2 months too late.

Molded would have been a better term.

As long the guys you mentioned above are responsible for BUILDING this halfway decent team maybe they should be the ones fired for another late season collaspe by the the PLAYERS they BUILT or is YOST the one getting shellacked on the feild gain?

The feeling is that there's a lot more talent on the field than what they're showing right now and that boils down to the manager not doing all he can to motivate them. Who knows, maybe Melvin's the next one to go but for now it was a move to shake things up and the manager is the first one you look to.

Ain't that the truth!

Plus a lot of his on feild decisions have been suspect from what my limited info is telling me?

Thats why Gardy will be here forever, like Kelly. No matter how the game is managed, the Polhads will keep him.

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
