In what industry insiders and fans alike should consider a surprise move, the Milwaukee Brewers fired manager Ned Yost, replacing him with Dale Sveum.

The Brewers currently hold a share of the wild card lead, and have made vast improvements since Yost held the reigns as Brew Crew manager.

Despite landing lefty CC Sabathia before the trade deadline, the Brewers have been floundering as of late. The following quote was posted on

"I think we have sucked in September so far," a Brewers player who wished to remain anonymous told's Amy K. Nelson. "And I don't think it's his fault that we can't hit or pitch right now, but something had to change."

Yost was in his sixth season as the Brewers' manager.
