Badger Blogger wrote yesterday that a source close to the Brewers claimed Ned Yost would be fired before the day was over.
It didn’t happen.
During tonight’s broadcast, Anderson said Yost was “steamed” about the report. Schroeder called the blog post, “irresponsible reporting.”
The Journal/Sentinel's beat writer for the Brewers also expressed anger (We know his employer never makes a mistake).
Badger Blogger is not an irresponsible blog. It is one of the best around that has done excellent work for a long time.
I believe Badger Blogger had a source. The source was wrong. At least, yesterday that source was incorrect. I am of the opinion the under-achieving Brewers aren’t going to any playoffs as long as Yost is the manager. Owner Mark Attanasio will run out of patience if the Brewers don't start playing up to their capability. The hope is that three million fans will go through the turnstiles this season at Miller Park. That won’t happen if the Brewers are mired near the bottom of the division.
And Yost won’t be able to survive.
Yost could very well be fired. It just didn’t happen yesterday.
In my book, Badger Blogger is still pretty doggone good.
