In a bit of a rash decision, the Milwaukee Brewers fired their manager Ned Yost with just 12 games remaining on the Major League docket. Having started off to a miserable September, the Brewers’ management decided to fire Yost after his team had fallen into a tie for the N.L. wildcard playoff spot. With newly acquired pitcher C.C. Sabathia nearing free agency along with fellow pitching star Ben Sheets, this may be the one shot for the Brewers. Taking over will be Dale Sveum, who will try to lead the Brewers to the playoffs.
