Ned Yost will be back managing the Royals again next season. He has agreed to a two-year contract extension through 2015. Yost guided the Royals to an 86-and-76 record this year, the team’s first winning season since 2003 and its best year since winning 92 games in 1989. Yost is 284-and-329 in four seasons with KC overall.
Royals general manager Dayton Moore says, in a small way, the team’s recently completed 86-win season feels like they won the World Series. He later clarified that comment to reporters, telling the “Star” that what he meant was that he feels very, very good about where the organization is and that the fans are so engaged.
