Ned Yost to be fired?

New, comments

There is a report out that Ned Yost is going to be fired today as the Brewers manager.

If true, it wouldn't be shocking, given the Brewers' second half struggles last season and their mediocre start to 2008.  Yost has been under the gun a bit.

Ted Simmons is supposedly set to replace Yost, and I wonder if the managerial change might lead to some shakeups on the playing field, as well.  There's been talk that the Brewers were interested in Gerald Laird, and Melvin has always loved Joaquin Benoit, so I wonder if this might open the door to some trade possibilities between Texas and Milwaukee...
