Yeah, so I'm still drunk from last night and I feel like giving this thread a bit of a bump.

I'll just let you guys in on a little secret.

The Buzzsaw has a 5 and 1/2 game lead in their division on June 14th.

Without Soriano for 6 weeks, get used to it. They play just fine without him.

Marquis is a MOT so I gots to root for him...but, yes, a rare well pitched game from him.

i suppose if the mets get swept by the rangers in today's true doubleheader that willie won't be making the trip out west tomorrow... one can only hope omar doesn't get to make the trip, either.

It's a really really funny thing...the relationship between a manager and the fans of the baseball team he manages.

It's a truth universally acknowledged that if a baseball team is playing well...the fans love the manager...and if a baseball team is under-achieving or playing poorly...the fans hate the manager and place heaps of blame on him and call for his head.

Does the manager wear a glove and a cup and spikes? Does he pick up a fucking wooden stick and try to hit a 95 mph fastball?

NO.

Baseball fans of the world...fuckin place the blame where it deserves to be.

Gimme a little bit of a break.

ok

a) you can't trade the entire team.

b) when a team shows a consistant lack of focus and, well, consistancy, when a team is lazy, when a team consistantly underachieves... it falls on management, both the manager and the GM.

trust me... i'd love for about a 1/4 of the team and the general manager to get the boot, too. but willie's driving the bus that'll take them out of town.

he never should have been allowed back after the debocle of last year.

Despite the three misspelled words above, I tend to agree with Headache. When a team suffers a collapse like the Mets did, perhaps the manager should not return. And, I love Willie Randolph, but, yeah, his time has likely come.

I, for one, think Willie Randolph ought to stay. Hell, sign him to a 10 year extension. Omar, too.

ETA: Headache loves to misspell words; for instance, "debocle", per say.

And he does it consistantly.

But if you call it the Superbowl you're in deep shit

I think the Mets should just shitcan Willie and get it over with. I mean Jesus, you can't publicly acknowledge that the manager's status is day to day; WTF is that? If that's your assessment of the guy just do it already so the team can focus on playing baseball rather than the status of the manager. Anyone know John Franco's opinion on Willie Randolph? Because you never know, that might be what we're waiting on...

Maybe they should fire the 3rd base coach...

The pisser of it is they can't really just make a move and move on. It's NY so it'll be damned near impossible to line up a replacement without it being all over the media which means more distraction. If Bobby V is the choice then you've got the whole song-and-dance of luring him back from Japan etc. Making a managerial change mid-season is a real pain in any kind of large market...I say either make the move, now, or announce he's safe for the season and if it doesn't work out do a real search in the offseason.
