Milwaukee’s Worst

The day after the NFL’s best referee blew a huge call in the Denver-San Diego game, the Milwaukee Brewers franchise blew off the rest of the season. In a tie for the lead in the National League Wild Card, Milwaukee fired manager Ned Yost.

 

Imagine if the New York Giants fired Tom Coughlin after the team made it to the NFC Championship game last year. Would anyone question Coughlin’s leadership in the middle of a championship run?

 

Of course not.

 

Yost almost made it through six seasons as manager of the Brewers before general manager Doug Melvin let him go on Monday afternoon.  “This was a very difficult move to make, and we appreciate all of the work that Ned has done to develop this team into a contender.”

 

If they really appreciated the work that Melvin produced with the Brewers, they might, you know, let him finish out the season. With just 12 games left on the schedule, a team in the lead for the wild card picks up an interim manager in the middle of a September swoon. Wonder how this turns out.
