Brewers fire their manager with two weeks left? Wow.

The Brewers just fired their manager, Ned Yost, in hopes (apparently) of waking the club up and getting them into the playoffs. Dale Sveum takes over for Yost.

If you haven’t been following along, the Brewers sit 7.5 games out of the NL Central race and find themselves tied with the surging Phillies for the wild card bid.

Tough break for Yost – I always thought he was a really good manager who would finally get the chance to see the postseason. It’s a shame that the manager has to be the one who takes the hit when the players don’t perform, although if the manager is setting the wrong tone or really doing something to hurt the team, then of course he should go.

I hadn’t heard Yost was guilty of that, but that’s just my understanding of it from a few thousand miles away.

Either way, do you think that the Brewers will find their mojo and get into the playoffs? Is firing the manager of the club at this point in the season the right thing to do? I say yes to the first but no to the second.
