Milwaukee Brewers fire Manager Ned Yost

3rd base coach Dale Sveum will take off as Manager. From AP-

MILWAUKEE – The Milwaukee Brewers have fired manager Ned Yost in the midst of a late-season slump that has jeopardized the team’s chances of making the playoffs for the first time since 1982.

Third-base coach Dale Sveum will become interim manager for the remainder of the season.

The Brewers have lost seven of their last 10, and share the NL wild-card lead with Philadelphia.

This is a really almost unheard of move for a team with postseason possibilities. It is usually teams playing badly or underpeforming that have their managers fired in September.

Since Sveum has never managed in the majors before, who’s to say he’ll be an improvement on Yost.
