Ned Yost media session: April 10, 2013
Ned Yost met with the media in his office this afternoon instead of the dugout due to some persistent rain at Kaufman Stadium. Wade Davis, tonight’s starter, and the inclement weather were among the first topics brought up.
The skipper said he hoped Davis could be a little more consistent in his second start of the young season. He mentioned if Davis can find his release point and get on a roll early, that it would help his starter. Yost was asked if the weather might cause some problems for the pitcher. Ned had this to say, “It’s definitely going to be a little tougher, that’s for sure. When it gets real cold like this it is hard to feel the ball, but both teams play in it so you just have to go out and do it.”
The second topic of discussion at this afternoon’s meeting was about the feeling around the clubhouse given the team’s early success. “There is a high degree of confidence I think. Everybody is having a good time. It’s a good clubhouse, filled with great chemistry and great players. They all get along with each other and it is a lot of fun right now.”
Finally, when asked about the weather forecast, Yost deadpanned, “It’s raining,” which brought on some laughter.
