Happy Birthday, Ned Yost

Happy birthday to Ned Yost, who turns 54 today. 

Yost, the former Brewers manager, was acquired by the Rangers prior to the 1984 season from the Brewers in exchange for Jim Sundberg, whom the Rangers decided was washed up.  Sundberg went on to have a solid season, while Yost put up a .182/.201/.273 line in 80 games while making Brad Wilkerson look like a fan favorite here.

That was not one of the Rangers' better trades.
