Royals manager Yost calls out Cardinals fans, Twitter goes nuts

BY foxsports • August 18, 2015

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost had some interesting things to say about the fan base of their cross-state rival, the St. Louis Cardinals, in a recent postgame new conference.

"The Missouri fans are great," Yost said when asked about the fans, per MLB.com. But of course, he had to clarify: "The St. Louis fans are great, but not as vocal and exciting as our fans."

Ouch.

Twitterverse was quick to chime in on Yost's comments — and Cards fans were not kind.

Royals fans were quick to rush to Yost's defense:



Those were just the tame tweets.



Here's hoping this heated rivalry is able to be decided in the ultimate showdown, the World Series.
