NYT: Mets Fire Randolph

37

No article yet, just a blurb at the top of the site: "Breaking News 3:23 AM ET: The New York Mets Fire Manager Willie Randolph" How this news managed to break in the middle of the night, I have no idea. [Update, by kingcritical] Promoted to front page. WFAN says Randolph, Peterson, and Nieto all are fired.

[Update #3] Story link at the top edited to point to short NY Times story on the matter instead of NY Times front page.
