Newsday's Davidoff & Lennon: "Willie Has The Weekend to Save His Job"

Just posted to Newsday by Ken Davidoff and David Lennon:

Willie Randolph doesn't have much longer to save his job as Mets manager."He's got the weekend," a person familiar with the situation said.The Mets, having lost six of their last seven games -- all of them in heartbreaking, nerve-wracking fashion -- are close to firing Randolph and replacing him with bench coach Jerry Manuel, Newsday has confirmed.

Mets hitting coach
Howard Johnson and pitching coach Rick Peterson are both also in serious trouble. SI.com reported today that Mets general manager Omar Minaya was "seriously considering" the change at manager and coaches, while foxsports.com reported yesterday that Randolph's job status was "day-to-day."

And so, the "Willie-watch" continues...more as it unfolds...
