"If anybody needs a day off, it's Ned Yost. He has a lot of things to sort out before he can take a team to the playoffs. He can't be wound this tight and still manage. His players will kill him. I've come close myself.
But I like him. He's a little easier to take when you know why he's like he is. The man cannot relax. Pardon my French, but Ned is so tight that if you stuck a lump of coal up his ass, in two weeks you'd have a diamond."
