DON'T fire Ned Yost

Ned made a great decision in the bottom of the 10th inning today. If Ned hadn't had Getz pinch run for Billy, the inning would have been over before Justin Maxwell ever came to the plate.

Everybody hates Ned and wants him to be fired. I don't. He sometimes makes game-time decisions that are easy to second-guess, but you've got to give him credit: the Royals have just about the best clubhouse atmosphere and team camraderie of any team I've ever seen. Ned deserves a hell of a lot of credit for that.

Not only do I think Ned won't be fired, I'm convinced he shouldn't be fired.

Edit: I was drunk with the euphoria of Justin Maxwell's walkoff grand slam when I created this thread. I have since sobered up.

Ned's decisions unquestionably led us to a loss in two or perhaps three critical games down the stretch. He's a small ball overmanager who has no business overseeing a contender.
Of course, the problem with Charlie Manuel is that he's pushing 70 years old and he's already had a heart attack, quadruple bypass surgery, a blocked and infected colon, and kidney cancer. I don't think he'd be the right choice for a young team because he might not be around very long.

That's exactly right. If the game had gone several more innings and the DH spot came up again with Butler out of the game, people would have been screaming about his idiocy.

Got a pitching staff that was tied for lowest ERA in the American League and still having trouble making the playoffs in a year they added one team to the playoffs. Thanks Ned!

You're a Cards fan.

You know nothing of Ned Yost and the Royals.

Shut it.

Remember when we could have swept Cleveland? I do, but unfortunately Yost felt the best two pitchers to use when holding a lead were Herrera and Davis, possibly our two worst pitchers. No he needs to be fired as an even competent manager would have us already locked in for a WC spot and not needing a miracle to make it. Sadly though we will finish over .500 this year and still have a shot at the WC so he will come back. Lucky us.

The bullpen ERA is one of the best of the live ball era. You may not agree with his decisions but using it as a reason to fire him is stupid.

Not because of pitchers like Herrera.
