Yosty Fired!

It's been fairly evident over the past weeks that the media and fans and maybe management and players have grown sick and tire of Ned's lack of results, management style, and attitude towards answering questions. If we don't make the playoffs he's gone regardless so maybe this is a last ditch effort to light a fire under the team's ass and make a run over the next few weeks. And if we don't he'd be gone anyway so the timing makes perfect sense.

So I don't disagree with the decision, but I'm not looking forward to the Brewers in the coming years which makes this past few weeks all the more painful.

And to make things worse, Ted Lilly has a no hitter through 5.

and what does "reassigned to an advsiory role" mean for Simmons...My guess is he had Ned's back and didn't want to replace him and manybe Sveum was anti Yost as well since now he's just a base coach not bench coach. If we come out tomorrow and throw up 10 runs and beat Dempster I'll feel a lot better about this otherwise we are still a crappy team regardless of how shitty the manager may have been.

and now talk radio has gotten even more out of hand now with all the anti-Yost folks calling...see I told you so and I told you they should have done it months ago.

We have a weak ass pathetic fan base...everyone jumping on/off the band wagon, living and dying with every ball and strike of the year, sell out to the Cubs fans so that our stadium is taken over by them just to make a buck!

I'm assuming D's 3-some and Rubie are in meetings or something cuz we haven't heard from them and I'm sure they are thrilled with today's actions...or maybe they just don't care anymore!
