So Much for that All-Star Job

I am awesome at coaching.
Every New York Mets fan in the world breathed a sigh of relief this morning when they woke up and realized their prayers had been answered while they slept.

Manager Willie Randolph was finally canned, 10 weeks into one of the most disappointing seasons in the club's history. For a $138 million payroll, they sure do stink. Interim coach Jerry Manuel will try to turn things around for a team that has been unable to recover from their epic 2007 collapse.

Also let go were horrid pitching coach Rick Peterson and first base coach Tom Nieto.

Looks like Willie can forget about that sweet NL coaching job at this year's All-Star game.

Free Willie!

Similar to Joe Torre's situation across town last year, a manager can only do so much. He's not going out there hitting the ball, nor is he going out there throwing the ball. A manager is an easy target, considering most players have salaries that dwarf that of Randolph's $2,000,000 in '08.
