Former Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost earned a reputation for good-naturedly yet pointedly critiquing the quality — often lacking it, in his estimation — of questions he received from reporters during his tenure.
The now-retired Yost, the franchise’s all-time leader in managerial wins, has settled into everyday life on his farm in Georgia. But he posed some interesting questions of his own about the future of franchise cornerstone left fielder Alex Gordon relative to the pandemic shutdown during a recent interview during The Star’s SportsBeat KC podcast.
“I was thinking about (Gordon) the other day,” Yost said. “What does this (situation) do for him? What if this game doesn’t come back this year? Does he play one more year? Who knows? But he’s sure been a treat to watch all these years.”
