Willie Randolph axed in our sleep

June 19, 2008

If a tree falls in the forest and there is nobody around, does it still make a noise when it hits the ground?

The New York Mets fired their manager and nobody was awake to learn about it.

After a late game in Los Angeles, the club issued a news release after 3 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time announcing the dismissal of Willie Randolph as the team’s skipper.  

This was done by a team that calls the largest media market in the country home!  While I tend to believe that sports information directors and professional sports teams’ public relations directors have a difficult job, doing something as boneheaded as this is way worse than dropping a routine pop fly.
