Ned Yost media session: May 4, 2013
Royals’ Manager Ned Yost opened today’s media conference discussing the recent string of weather-related off-days. Yost stated that the club has to continue on and deal with the off-days, and not let them affect their performance.
Yost then discussed the club’s clutch hitting early in the season. He stated he likes the way the lineup sets up, and that he believes that every player from one to nine in the batting order has the chance to be productive in every game. Drawing the connection back to the Royals’ clutch hitting, he stated the team never seems to quit, and that the winning culture instilled in the Royals’ organization gives the players the belief that they are never out of a game. Yost concluded that the youth and energy the club brings to the field gives the Royals a chance to win every ballgame.
