The headline speaks for itself, but let me explain:
Ned Yost is a pretty odd name for someone.
We can all agree that most people of the people named "Ned" that we met growing up were not professional athlete material in junior or senior high, so you have yourself an an anomoly right there. Also, the last name "Yost" sounds like it would be a Dr. Seuss character, not the "take no prisoners when going up against the White Sox" type of guy we were treated to over the weekend.
Finally, the dude doesn't look like a "Ned Yost" in the dugout: he looks more like "Lance Manion", "Hank Reardon", or "Not Trey Hillman", to me at least.
So let's put our heads together and give Ned a decent nickname.
I will get the ball rolling with some ideas, but am willing to be overruled:
2. Yostus Maximus.
3. Yost of the Town.
4. Yo, Nedrian!
5. Yostest of the Not So Mostest.
6. Hopefully, Not Trey (a throwaway, I admit).
Let's do this thing right!
