Now the Royals are Stealing Our Former Coaches

It's bad enough that one out of every four players in the Royals organization used to be in the Braves organization, now they're going after former Braves coaches.

The Kansas City Royals have hired former Milwaukee manager Ned Yost as a special adviser.

I guess it makes sense being that Yost was with the Braves when Royals GM Dayton Moore was with the Braves. A quick rundown of the Royals 40-man roster reveals a bevy of former Braves, mostly pitchers:  Roman Colon, Juan Cruz, Kyle Davies, Kyle Farnsworth, Anthony Lerew, Edgar Osuna, and Brayan Pena. That list doesn't include the Jorge Campillo's and other non-roster or minor league players.
