ESPN Brewer/Yost Article

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick writing about Yost feeling the heat in Milwaukee. A couple of excerpts...

There are whispers of clubhouse discord, particularly among the Milwaukee veterans, over Yost's frequent lineup changes and penchant for riding the hot hand. Yost also has clashed with segments of the local media and been testy and defensive at times.

The Brewers have blown a major-league-high 16 leads of three runs or more, which has fueled criticism of Yost's bullpen management. He has also been second-guessed for habitually lifting Braun (he of the .994 OPS and .900 fielding percentage) for a defensive replacement in the late innings.

Yost does NOTHING well. He is average at best as an in-game manager, and an awful bullpen decision maker. I don't think the organization owes him anything
