Ned Yost is a Troll: How the Kansas City Royals Became Baseball’s Most Hated Team

Ramblings, Sports

Watching the highlights for the Toronto Blue Jays and Kansas City Royals game was painful.

High pitches from pitcher Edinson Volquez of the Royals to new additions Troy Tulowitzki and Josh Donaldson.

The umpire Jim Wolf expressed poor judgment in not taking control of the situation and disciplining Volquez.

On top of that, when Donaldson rightfully complained, Volquez begins taunting him from the dugout and after the game he goes on about how he’s a baby.

When pitcher Sanchez on the Blue Jays returned the favour in the later innings, he got tossed. The Royals then act all tough and leave the dugout. There’s king rat Edinson Volquez trying to put on a front in the middle of this scrum like he’s the toughest guy ever.

To add insult to injury manager Ned Yost put on a troll face and made a spiel that would make most politicians grin. He said Jim Wolf was amazing and the Blue Jays players leap into the inside too much which is why the high pitches occurred.

Come on man. I thought about calling him an asshole but could see he didn’t believe he crap he was spewing. He’s a troll.

The Royals have done this crap time and time again this year. They are trying to act like the toughest team in all of baseball. It doesn’t work that way.

Enjoy the exit from the postseason this year you classless baboons.

Don Mattingly Admits the Dodgers Suck

Poor choice of words for a headline, but according to LA Times Don Mattingly claimed after another Dodgers loss that:

“Basically, we’re sh**ty,” Mattingly said. “We’re just not that good . . . Home, away, whatever. I don’t know what that has to do with it . . . I really think you should talk to [the players]. I’m tired of answering the questions, honestly.”

The truth hurts. I’m hardly much of a baseball fan but the Dodgers are my favourite team and have been for a while. Never have I seen a franchise spend so much money on their roster only to get “shit” in return.

You would think last year they should have won the world series quite easily with their roster on paper and the way they performed. Instead they shit the bed against the Cardinals.

This year they are on the same track, they might not even make the postseason (they probably won’t, actually).

Whichever sole person has the most money invested into the Los Angeles Dodgers franchise should be disgusted and ashamed. How do you put in 200 million dollars each year on the roster alone and get crap in return? I wish I could do that and sleep well at night.

The Los Angeles Kings probably pay 1/10th of that for their roster yet Los Angeles natives could care less about that franchise. Yeah, that franchise that has been to the stanley cup finals twice in three years as well as the conference final the other year.
