Most of the time, Royals manager Ned Yost appears to cherish time with the media the way most of us cherish time with our dentist. But ask him the right question and he doesn’t mind talking.
During a recent interview, a question about the baseball term red-(bass) got Yost rolling.
Red-(bass) is baseball slang for a guy with a temper. Yost said he wasn’t sure where the term originated, but freely admitted he used to be one. He then supplied a more elegant way of saying the same thing: “An ungracious out.”
