It seems like Gary Carter is taking a lot of heat for campaigning for the Mets managerial job. People are saying that it wasn’t right of him considering that the job is still occupied by Willie Randolph. I say the opposite. If someone is interested in the job then now is the right time to [...]
Looks like Willie Randolph survived the weekend and even got lukewarm votes of confidence from GM Omar Minaya and ownership. That should buy him at least a little time. I’m sure he knows that a vote of confidence with the current feelings around Shea are not much more than a momentary thing. He knows it [...]

In his blog for the New York Post Joel Sherman writes about Joe Torre managing the Mets instead of the Dodger.
A lot of talk about some comments Willie Randolph made to a reporter on Sunday. The basic gist of the comments was Willie complaining that SNY was trying to make him look bad and that people are being more critical of him due to race. Both of these comments are dumb and Willie tried to [...]
