Willie Gets His Due
Via this diary
at Amazin' Avenue... The Mets and Willie Randolph have agreed to a $5.65 million, three-year contract
that will keep the team's manager in Queens through 2009, with an option for an additional year.
I know people have criticized Randolph's in-game management, and I haven't totally been in love with every decision he's made, but that's a small part of the manager's job anyway. The important thing is his personnel management skills, and there I think Willie's been fantastic. He's not the only reason the Mets did so well last year, but he was a big part of it, so congrats to Omar Minaya and Fred Wilpon for doing the right thing and bringing him back under a real contract.
April's only three months away...
