I bet the guy in question never played baseball above the Little League level, to boot.
I'm not going to bang the table for Ned Yost, but he has pushed the right button a lot of times this year. He hasn't blatantly got in the way, and that's about all I expect from most managers.
My primary complaint is continuing to play Jeff Francoeur like a starter when he should be a platoon guy, but I think that's GM-directed more than manager-directed.
