Managers On The Hot Seat… #1 Willie Randolph

Willie Randolph is number one on a recent list of managers that need to win now. The Mets aren’t built for the future. They traded some of that away for Johan Santana. Professional sports teams don’t have “rebuilding” years in New York, especially with a new stadium coming next season. The Mets are built to win now. = 1326;picApp_imageId = 8935;picApp_imageWidth = 201;picApp_imageHeight = 302;picApp_configUrl = “”;picApp_Picview=””;picapp_numberOfLine=2;ImageServe();

It’s difficult to even write about “The Collapse” of last season. It was devastating for fans, players, and management. Willie Randolph was at the helm and will be remembered with Gene Mauch’s 1964 Phillies as the worst late season drop ever.

I have to agree with Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. Willie has to win now or go.

Mets- Detroit Tigers Deal For Marcus Thames Still Possible

Yahoo Sports is reporting that the Mets are still looking at the Detroit Tigers Marcus Thames.

The New York Mets have scouted Detroit Tigers first baseman/outfielder Marcus Thames so much this spring that they could be accused of stalking according to the Boston Globe.

The Tigers still need bullpen help and the Mets have a glut of arms in the pen. Omar Minaya really needs to make something happen. With the news of Reed Johnson getting release by the Blue Jays today that may be the direction that Minaya goes. = 1326;picApp_imageId = 7474;picApp_imageWidth = 338;picApp_imageHeight = 504;picApp_configUrl = “”;picApp_Picview=””;picapp_numberOfLine=2;ImageServe();
