Willie Randolph has been named bench coach of the Brewers. The Mets are planning to call and congratulate him at 3:00 am tomorrow morning. To make Randolph feel like he's still managing the Mets, he'll get to coach the giant wieners.
The Colorado Rockies have expressed interest in hiring Willie Randolph. They're having trouble getting a hold of him, as he unplugged his phone three months ago. Randolph already declined an offer to join the Nationals coaching staff. Randolph's job would be pointless, since the Nationals can lose just fine without him.
Mets GM Omar Minaya finally fired manager Willie Randolph. If Minaya weathered the storm much longer, he'd have had to call FEMA. Yes, FEMA – the one organization more inept than the New York Mets. Mets ownership said that if they wanted to expect greatness only to get disappointment, they'd have hired M. Night Shyamalan.
The ownership of the Mets said Willie Randolph can keep his job as manager. Unfortunately, Willie didn't receive the message because Jose Reyes bobbled it. If things don't work out with the Mets, Randolph can always coach the Knicks.
