With more wins comes the ability to announce his presence at Starbucks, says Ned Yost

It turns out Bobby Valentine is not the only MLB manager who felt the need to disguise his identity. Royals skipper Ned Yost explained on Wednesday that, due to his team having two consecutive 90-loss seasons under his leadership, he identifies himself as "Frank" when giving his order at Starbucks. The recent addition of James Shields and Wade Davis and the wins that will hopefully come with them, he said, should allow him to drop the pseudonym from now on.
