Ned Yost Ran Over Jon Heyman's Dog

Anyone notice the outright hatred and disgust that Jon Heyman has for Ned Yost? Every time Heyman is on, he talks about how he is not a fan of Yost. Earlier today, he did it again. He always mentions the fact that Yost got thrown out of 3 games last year as evidence he is not a good manager. Yes Jon, I am sure his getting tossed from 3 games last year is why the Brewers didn't make the playoffs and is also why they are struggling now. It can all be traced back to those ejections:

"He was ejected 3 times last year at the end of the season when they were certainly in the race, I think there was no question they needed to change managers. This team was absolutely collapsing...Milwaukee is just falling apart and I don't think Yost is the guy. I don't think he is the guy to bring them home..."

Anyone know what ever happened between Heyman and Yost? Something clearly must have gone down between the two...

This might be similar to the Murray Chass/Bobby Valentine feud. Until Chass got dropped by the Times, he would do a yearly Valentine bash, even while Bobby was in Japan.

I'm no fan of Heyman, but I don't see any agenda there. I was surprised they didn't do it sooner. The timing is weird, but Yost stinks. When your manager tells you he's run out of answers, you have to turn to someone else. Yost is also volatile and has scrapped with his players in the past. I've never heard anything great about him as manager. Maybe he's not the problem necessarily, but I don't think Heyman was being unfair.

Bigjf....did Yost run over your dog as well? Seriously though, Heyman has always talked negatively about Yost...and it just seems like there was an incident between the two of them. And I would love to know went down..
