I'd stop beating this dead horse if someone would come clean up the body.

After blowing a game by making four hideous errors, including two to key a two-run seventh inning, Brewers manager Ned Yost got snippy with the media. After all, how DARE you question the ability of this team to learn from the mistakes they're making practically every day.
"The Red Sox made a bunch of errors, too, and they 're World Champions," Milwaukee manager Ned Yost said. "Think they're learning anything tonight? It happens. You make errors."
I'd call Ned a dope, but that would be an insult to dopes.

I've had it. This team is thoroughly unwatchable, and all I get from the manager are mindless, meaningless quotes that show no basic understanding of what is going on with this LAST-PLACE team. At this point, I don't give a crap who gets fired. The house needs to be cleaned, and I'd like it done while there is still a chance.

(There aren't a ton of examples of managerial changes leading to anything good, but it did work for - among others - the 1982 Brewers and, more recently, the 2005 Astros.)

Nine straight road losses. Bad pitching. Bad hitting. Bad defense. A complete moron for a manager.

Anything going right?

Well, at least he isn't asking Ryan Braun to drop mindless sacrifice bunts.

But what about asking Cory Hart to Sac bunt in game 1 on Saturday after a Prince double?
