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.
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.
