Let me preface this by saying that I despised Ned Yost and thought Ken Macha was a clown, so it's going to take a lot for me to really dislike Ron Roenicke. He's just so superior to anything I've experienced in my short seven years as a Brewers fan that I probably give him way more leniency than I should. But by the inevitable end of tonight's game, I think I'm ready to admit that I'd like a chang...

So the whole situation Tuesday night (Aug. 4) was weird enough all on it’s own.But what if I told you that it happened exactly a year to the day after the Prince-Manny Parra dugout dustup. But it gets weirder, still.In 2007, then-manager Ned Yost and then-catcher Johnny Estrada got in a dugout scuffle. That one happened on August 3.Sure, having it be one day off ruins the flow a little – but s...

One of the most interesting storylines to come out of the firing is the reaction of the players and the insight it's giving us into how the dugout has been. The quotes come from this story on Brewers.com JJ Hardy, for instance, said it took him a couple of years to warm up to Ned, but that lately he'd seen an improvement: "This year, I thought he was doing a lot better job of being relaxed,...

Ned's comments to the media today did nothing but raise more questions about the whole firing situation. Mark A. had said that he asked Ned for reasons and solutions for the most recent slide and when Ned had none, he was dismissed. Today, Ned said that he was told he was dismissed the second he walked into the room and the questions were asked after that. Mark A intimated that Ned's answ...

The prayers of many Brewer fans were answered a few minutes ago when the story broke that the Brewers fired manager Ned Yost and promoted third base coach Dale Sveum to interim manger. Ted Simmons, who had been the bench coach, was moved to an "advisory role" according to the report on jsonline.com.The move is frankly more than a little surprising so late in the season and the move may be consider...

One is a screen cap of the Brewers homepage announcing the firing, the other is the email that was sent to those of us on the Brewers mailing list. Both aren't exactly the most attractive pictures of Ned. I also enjoy the oh-so-tactful headline of "Yost relieved of managerial post."...

Is this the beginning of the end?It's so hard to stay positive and not think that this is the Brewers completely blowing it.I know, I know. It's just a couple of games, step off the ledge, etc...But when our manager continues to do things like bat Kendall and Counsell to lead off the ninth inning down by one run and we cannot at ALL rely on our bullpen, it's hard to remain optimistic and calm.We a...
