A blogger of all people is claiming that Ned Yost will be fired as Brewers' manager today.
If he's right, score one for inside dirt from anonymous tipsters. If he's wrong, cue the Bissinger/Wilbon/Chass/etc. chorus for their latest version of the Irresponsible Blogger Cantata. My view on this kind of stuff is that bloggers should feel free to break all the news they want, but they need to be held every bit as accountable as a paid reporter is when they screw up. So, good luck Badger Blogger!
For what it's worth, I'd probably can Yost too. This is a team that should be contending right now.
UPDATE: It's after 5PM and Yost appears to still have a job. This doesn't mean he won't be fired, but it implies that one fact in Badger Blogger's story -- i.e. that it will be done on the off-day -- is wrong. I mean, would they really let Ned check in to the hotel in Pittsburgh if he was really going to be axed today? Think of the minibar charges he'd run up!
