Submit chat questions for Craig Goldstein (Wed Sep 23 at 1:00 pm EDT)

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.

He will have a special place in Royals history after two pennants and the most wins in franchise history, but he wasn’t always everyone’s favorite.

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

And to wrap up, we discussed revelations from Danny Duffy about anxiety, depression, and panic attacks as detailed in Sam McDowell‘s story in the Kansas City Star.
