Ned Yost media session: August 13

Sweating bullets

With temperatures peaking in the 100s today, the heat was an unavoidable subject. Like he’s done in the past, however, Yost simply shrugged it off by saying the players will need to disregard the weather and do the best they can.

Congrats to Kendall

Catcher Jason Kendall will be recognized before tonight’s game for reaching the 2,000 games caught milestone in late July. Yost sang the catcher’s praises by describing what a hard worker and mentally tough player he is. According to Yost, Kendall comes to the stadium early every day to watch video and develop a game plan for the starting pitcher.

Goodbye Guillen

Yost also commented on the recent announcement of Jose Guillen’s trade to the Giants. The manager said Guillen was a part of the Royals, and he set a good example of what it took to be prepared and play the game the right way.
