After much speculation, Ned Yost has announced that he’s retiring at the end of the season.
He’s been an interesting manager to follow…with some conflicting feelings. We discuss the dichotomy and Yost’s legacy and impact on the current Royals, the past Royals, and most importantly, the champion Royals.

We also brought up a few anniversaries occurring this week involving another retirement and some of the best Royals memories we have.
