View Full Version : John Rooney on Yost: "This is one of the dumbest things I have ever seen a MGR do"

Mods, I wasn't sure if I should put this in talking Baseball or here. It really has more to do with Yost being incompetent.

Obviously, feel free to move it if need be.

John Rooney has seen a lot of Baseball, which makes his quote all the more unreal.

I agree. What a stupid thing to do in the middle of a pennant race. Not the right tone to set for a young and up-and-coming team. If they come short by 1, the Brewers fans will call for his head, and rightfully so.

I saw this last night on BB Tonight when channel surfing for scores. I didn't know the history of it, but it certainly seems like a pretty stupid decision.

Oh and one BB Tonight talking head said, "I don't know if he should have been ejected, it just grazed (Pujols)." :rolleyes:

It came down to this: with the Brewers trailing only 3-2 in the 8th, Yost brought a nondescript, disposable reliever into the game to pop STLís Albert Pujols with a pitch in obvious retaliation for the Cardinalsí earlier plunking of Cecil Fielder.Man, now that is holding a grudge!

In the eighth, Pujols was plunked on the elbow by Brewers reliever Seth McClung (http://cbs.sportsline.com/mlb/players/playerpage/390779), who was ejected along with Yost. The Cardinals went on to score four runs with two outs.
"It's not the first guy I've hit, not the first walk. Why do you think Tampa traded me?" McClung said. "It happens sometimes with me. The ball just gets out of my hand and flies away."

I would just like to thank Seth McClung again for pitching the gem against the Indians in 2005.

Bull****! That fine manager you have ordered the beanball and more then likely ended all hope the Crew had.

It's kinda sad that he knows his own worth...or lack thereof.

Ned Yost is a goner by season's end unless the Crew win the division. They completely have pissed away EVERY opportunity possible.

Brewer fans up here have been calling for his head since late July.

If that's the move that decides this year's division, Ned Yost should never again be put in charge of a major league club. Rooney is right. This is probably the worst managerial decision since Grady Little stuck with Pedro.

Come on Rooney, remember when I went to the bullpen with nobody warming up?

While no doubt a stupid move, the Brewers were NOT winning the game yesterday at the time of the beaning and there is nothing to say that would have won the game.

There are plenty of other games to look at for the Brewers woes this season.

The Brewers scored a run in the ninth yesterday. That play ignited a 4 run rally, which turned out to be the difference in the game.

They just aren't a very good team. Actually no one in that division is a good team. The Cubs and Brewers are average to below average teams with the Cardinals being strictly below average and they other 3 teams being piss poor.

Also, Barry Bonds salutes you.

So, they would have tied the game at 3 and gone into extra innings. There is no way to determine who would have won.

I disagree. I think the Crew is a very good young team. They just happen to have a bad pen. I think the Cubs are a good team as well, they just have an inconsistent offense.

True. That said, the Crew were demoralized after that inning. I strongly feel had they held the Cards in check in the 8th, they win it in the 9th.

The 4 run rally took a huge toll on them. Just a terrible move by Yost.

Based on what? The two runs the scored in the first two innings?

The Brewers scored a two out run in the ninth on a single after Ricky Weeks got to second on catchers indifference. Had the score been 3-2, you don't know if Weeks would've been thrown out trying to steal second. Just because they came up with a run in the ninth doesn't mean they would've done so had the score been closer.

I think the Brewers are a very good, young team..they are missing a starter, 1-2 bullpen arms and their manager is a complete idiot. You're one run down, you know if you win you'll be one game out, but you make a beanball war your priority...what an idiot.

Braun, Hardy, Fielder, Hall, etc. are a very good young core...that should be around for years....and now they have the revenue (based on this year's attendance) and new ownership to be able to build on this year.

True enough...but down by 1 run in your home park (where you've hit 220+ home runs)...anything can happen when you just have to scrap out a single run.

The Crew should be better off without that asshat Yost tonight. A win and they are back within a game. Flubbies are bending over backwards to hand them the division, they just got swept by the Marlins. :bandance:

The Cubs are trying to give it away. The Brewers will decline the charity, and the Cubs will back in.

That's how they roll in the NL Central.

Yost just got suspended for one game and McClung for three. The Cubs will have to send Yost a big thank-you card if they hang on to win this thing.

well, that is a positive, at least Yost won't be behind the bench for one of the 4 against SD. That is one less he can screw up.

Hopefully, Sveum is smart enough not to bring Turnbow in if the game is hanging in the balance in the late innings.
