So Willie, former Yankees bench coach is now the Mets new manager. Omar Minaya introduced him in a press conference yesterday. Randolph has no prior managing experience. What does he bring to the table? Well he's been part of the Bronx Zoo Crew for quite a while now and is used to success. He could demand a lot out of these players, especially the young ones. He also shouldn't have a problem dealing with the media unlike Art Howe. There are of course the problems of never having managed a game. I'd like to think this would turn out like a Mike Scioscia (or however the hell you spell it) story where he takes a team to the championship in his first year. Then of course there's reality. I don't expect much out of Randolph. Turn out a winning season and I'll be happy. Just don't make the same mistakes Art Howe did of being a nice guy.
