OT: Yost out in Brewer land

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.

I know Yost is a terrible manager, but this is very weird this late in the season.  I guess the fear was that the Brewers would go down Metsville and tank in September and miss the playoffs yet again. It'll be interesting to see if this actually gives them a spark and rights the ship so to speak. Very odd.
