Today's Yosty is about a week old, but it's a goody (Yost-ified!):
Following the Crew's 6-1 loss to the Astros last week, King Ned was asked if the Brewers wasted an opportunity when they had runners on the corners in the first inning and didn't score. Sayeth His Majesty:
“I don’t call it that. You’re facing Roy Oswalt. You’ve got to work for everything you get against him. There’s no such thing as a missed opportunity.”
Holy shit. King Ned has become such a contrarian that he is now unwilling to concede that the concept of a "missed opportunity" exists. Then again, perhaps His Highness just uses a term other than "missed opportunity" to describe having runners on first and third with one out and not scoring. Some suggestions:
"An abomination in the eyes of the Lord."
Or, perhaps most accurately: "The usual."
