Randolph's Surgery A Success

The New York Times is reporting that Willie Randolph has undergone successful shoulder surgery and will begin the second half in a sling:

Mets Manager Willie Randolph had rotator cuff surgery on his right shoulder yesterday, which means he will begin the second half of the season Thursday with one arm in a sling.

Randoph had the operation at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan. He will probably have to wear the sling for several weeks. While he does, he will have to rely on his left arm to signal to the bullpen and to the third-base coach, and to pump his fist to encourage his team.

It would have been great to have Willie at the All-Star game as the bench coach, but it’s even better to see that he is getting back into 100% mode for the second half.
