"I thought the ball came out of his hand better today."

Said Yost about Sanchez. As many of you know, I'm fine with qualitative analysis. But what in the hell does this mean? How does a ball come out of one's hand poorly? It seems to me you judge this sort of thing by balls and strikes. Sanchez threw a lot of balls, ergo the ball came out of his hand "badly"---whatever that means. Is Yost the King of Meaningless Coach-speak or what? - TL

Yost Gets It -- Kinda

"I’ve read studies where you can pull a lineup out of a hat," he said, "and, over the course of an extended look, you’re not going to get any more offense than if you hand-set your lineup." ... "You look at Kila’s numbers in Triple-A," Yost said, "and his strength was his plate discipline. [...] it’s an adjustment period up here. You’ve finally got your opportunity, and you want to show what you’re capable of doing. It’s only natural (to try to do too much) until you get back into your comfort zone."
