Epaminondas and Ned Yost

One day Epaminondas visited his aunt, who gave him cake to bring home to his mother.

He held it tightly in his hands as he walked home. When he reached home with nothing but crumbs, his mother scolded him, telling him the proper way to carry cake is to wrap it in leaves and wear it in his hat.

The next time Epaminondas visited his aunt, she gave him a pound of butter to bring home to his mother.

He wrapped the butter in leaves and wore it in his hat as he walked home under the hot summer sun. When he reached home covered in melted butter, his mother scolded him, telling him the proper way to carry butter is to wrap in leaves, cool it in water, and carry it home in his hands as quickly as he can.

The next time Epaminondas visited his aunt, she gave him a puppy to bring home to his mother.

He wrapped the puppy in leaves, cooled it in water, and carried it home in his hands as quickly as he could. When he reached home with a wet dog, his mother scolded him, telling him the proper way to carry a puppy is to tie one end of a string gently around its neck and lead it home with the other end.

The next time Epaminondas visited his aunt, she gave him a loaf of bread to bring home to his mother.

He tied one end of a string around the loaf of bread and took the other end in his hand, dragging it home in the dirt. When he reached home with a dust-covered loaf of bread, his mother scolded him.

This is why Kelvin Herrera, Wade Davis, and Greg Holland will combine to pitch 40 percent of the 2015 Royals’ regular season innings, requiring season-ending Tommy John surgeries by mid-June, and Ned Yost will be fired by July.
