Ned Yost was suspected of spying on the Kansas City Chiefs

Spy vs Spy

Sorta. He was at the Truman Sports Complex, minding his own business, watering the third baseman tree and all of that when he happened to wander by Chiefs minicamp. Bob Dutton of the KC Star:

While jogging, Yost said he thought about dropping by the Chiefs’ offices to say hi to new coach Andy Reid when he noticed helmeted players. “I stopped to see what was going on,” Yost said, “and, boom, here came the security.”

I don’t know what’s funnier: that the Chiefs think any opponent is so threatened by them that they’d bother to spy on their practices or that someone like Ned Yost has the savvy and daring to be a spy in the first place.

    Antonio Prohias. Well played sir. Next time we speak, I need to tell you about the time I sat next to William M. Gaines on the Metroliner from NY to DC. It requires direct verbal communication; there’s a sound effect moment that won’t work in print.

    And when confronted by security Ned threatened to spank them.

    (I think I would enjoy Ned Yost better if he were a comedian, not manager of the Royals)

    Yost better stay away from Andy Reid. He’ll wake up in a drainage ditch in the middle of Missouri having traded Billy Butler and a 2nd round pick for the Chiefs backup quarterback and a Book of Mormon

    sounds like someone was snooping around the slurm factory trying to figure out the secret ingredients.now that he knows the chiefs horibble secret(that their not really a football team but just like to play dress up)the only recourse is that the royals have to take Glenn Dorsey in exchange for sparing his life.which seems pretty unfair for Ned

    Nedly should be careful. While in Milwaukee, he took a walk to clear his head during a bad week. He came back and was fired by Doug Melvin.

    This story has been completely blown out of proportion and misconstrued as something it wasn’t. They weren’t afraid that Ned Yost was potentially there to spy on the team, he just wandered too close to Andy Reid’s lunch sack and the trained security charged with protecting it reacted accordingly.

    And here we thought that the Chiefs organization’s galloping paranoia went away with Scott Pioli, under whom the levels were elevated to hysterical (and historical) proportions. Apparently we were wrong.
