Seeing Omar Minaya & family at a LA shopping mall


A fan shares a story about seeing Omar Minaya and his family at a Los Angeles shopping mall, amid the Mets horrific Western trip, which culminated with losing 3 of 4 at Dodger Stadium.

Nats interested in Randolph -- Newsday.com

Here's a duo of National League East events that could happen -- without dramatically stretching reality -- in the next year: 1. The Nationals get off to a poor start in 2009 and fire manager Manny Acta, replacing him with their third-base coach Willie Randolph. 2. The Mets miss the 2009 playoffs and fire manager Jerry Manuel, replacing him with Acta. Me: YAY!!!!!

NYT: Mets Fire Randolph


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. This is just a bizarre move, especially (as Tony Page points out) since the team just won a game after flying out to the west coast. More as it develops. [Update #2] Adam Rubin got the scoop. [Update #3] Story link at the top edited to point to short NY Times story on the matter instead of NY Times front page.

THE BOOK--Is Willy Randolph to Blame for the Mets’ poor record and performance?


MGL weighs in on Willie Randolph's influence (or lack thereof) on the outcome of Mets games.

Carter Has Eye on Randolph's Job


"Willie Randolph got a vote of confidence Friday from General Manager Omar Minaya, but that did not stop the sharks from circling. On "The Mike & Murray Show" on Sirius Satellite Radio, the former Met Gary Carter campaigned to replace Randolph. Carter, a Hall of Famer, is the manager of the Orange County Flyers of the independent Golden Baseball League." Intriguing. I'm not sure whether those in the know consider the Kid to be a potential MLB manager, but it's tough to deny that he had enthusiasm and passion in spades.
