Willie Randolph should have been gone on Memorial Day. Instead Willie had a friendly BBQ with the Wilpons and Omar Minaya and was given a second chance.
Since Memorial Day the Mets have showed sparks of turning into a winning team only to have them immediately followed by coma-inducing losing streaks. After Wednesday's saving grace of a game, Thursday was met with utter demise.
Did Willie lose these games? Nope, but this team needs a change at the helm in the worst way. I think it's so evident to everyone, but Mets management. Sometimes players become complacent in their current situation and sometimes the man at the helm is just not getting the most out of his players.
This team needs a change. Anyone who says otherwise doesn't know what he/she is talking about. A major trade at this point in the season is highly unlikely. Trading Reyes is idiotic banter for the Jerk and the Fatman (hint: WFAN 1-6 p.m.).
The move that can be made immediately and have a swift impact is changing the man in charge. Willie likes to say that his record proves what he's done. Well Willie you're 3 games under .500 and since last July your a losing manager.
You're a nice guy and you've had your moments, but the time has come. Please someone pull the hook on this guy before we're drowning at the bottom of the NL East and resort back to our 2004 losing ways.
