When things get bad, Royals managers say and do the darndest things

Almost every Royals manager in the past 20 years has reached a point where there’s not much left to say or do about a losing streak — except for something ridiculous. Ned Yost got there Tuesday night, after the Royals’ 18th loss in their last 22 games, with his “spanking” quote.
