Atlanta Brave bullpen coach Ned Yost (left) took some ribbing from his players last season after they found out he dressed by the numbers, using a computerized list to match his ties with his shirts with his suits, etc. Yost, though, may get the last laugh. He has gone into business with Mac McLemore of The Gentry Shop in Stone Mountain, Ga. For $249, McLemore will number your garments, provide you with a list of matches and recommend items to fill the holes in your wardrobe. The Yost system may cause some confusion for Atlanta batterymates, however. Does three fingers mean fastball, curveball or the double-breasted blue blazer with the gray slacks?

All's Right That...

The other day on heavily traveled Interstate 71 in Cincinnati, the door of a horse trailer bound for Keeneland, Ky., flew open, and a 3-year-old colt fell out. Fortunately, some passing motorists stopped and pulled the dazed horse off the superhighway. Miraculously, he suffered only minor cuts. His name? Ends Right. He's out of I'm Alright.
