2008-09-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Regarding Yost and your YCLIU article, so if you discount Williams/Expos1981 'cuz of the strike, there's then not a single really good parallel to what the Brewers did here? And some BP writer made a remark about Yost's "Queeg-like" lockerroom persona. Any idea what that references?
(Richie from Washington)
Before writing the YCLIU article, I looked at every managerial record from 1900 on. There are a several examples of the opposite kind of firing, a manager getting canned just a few games into the season, like Yogi Berra in 1985 or Nick Leyva in 1991, and a couple of managers, like Eddie Stanky and Eddie Sawyer, who decided after one game that this managing thing wasn't for them, but the Dick Williams thing was as close as I think we can get to the Yost situation. As I tried to imply, well, not imply - I came out and said it, maybe this is because other organizations were more vigilant than the Brewers have been. It's a bit late for the Brewers to be all, "We're shocked, SHOCKED, that Ned Yost sucks." That, by the way (shocked, SHOCKED) is a reference to a Humphrey Bogart film, "Casablanca." "Queeg" also references a Bogart movie, "The Caine Mutiny," based on Herman Wouk's novel, in which Bogie played the WW II Captain Queeg, a paranoid, frightened martinet. Just a B/B- film. Same for the novel. Bogie is great, though. (Steven Goldman)
