Olney: Willie Randolph Working To Keep Job

ESPN usually keeps their best content from their premier baseball writers as a paid service. Occasionally, they’ll offer up something for free like today’s column from Buster Olney.

Olney talks about how Willie Randolph is in the cross-hairs right now and is managing every day to keep his job. But he also goes on to say that there’s no clear alternative right now.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.

  1. I am very happy to see that our only hope these days for a "W" is on the mound today. The game should be considered a must-win for The Metropolitans, so I'm looking forward to watching this one. The game today seems to have a little bit extra desperation behind it, which I believe is due to yesterday's unexpected day off. We could now be talking about either the Mets looking for 2-straight wins, or how yesterday's day-off made all these Anti-Willie articles and blogs become more of the centerpiece focus since there was no game to discuss. I believe the extra time to think was not what Dr. Randolph had wanted to order. I think that Willie wanted to play the game more than anything, because he needed to show a solid team performance which would have a "W" sketched into the next-day NY papers. Needless to say, the negativity brewed like stale coffee, while today's opportunity with our Ace on the mound is already not looking good. –Scottie-B
