Ned Yost managed his Kansas City Royals squad to the World Series in 2014. They unfornutately lost in a close game seven to the San Francisco Giants but it doesn’t take away from the fact that Yost is a quality mnager. He finished third in the Manager of the Year voting behind the Baltimore Orioles’ Buck Showalter and runner-up Mike Scioscia of the Los Angeles Angels.
He took a squad of young players who had never played in the postseason to a crazy 11-inning A.L. Wild Card win over the Oakland Athletics to beating the Angels in the A.L. Division Series and driving straight past the A.L. East Champion Baltimore Orioles and onto the World Series.
Today the Royals announced that Ned Yost has agreed to a one-year extension. He will now manage the team through the 2016 season.
