I came across this article on and thought I would share it with my beloved scumbag New York Mets fans:

"After another dramatic collapse at the end of 2008, David Wright's continuing struggles in the clutch, and a 9-12 start to the 2009 season, the New York Mets have contacted the Milwaukee Brewers and asked for permission to fire their bench coach, Willie Randolph.

"The firing of Randolph, for the second time in 10 months, is seen by club insiders and Mets fans alike as necessary, according to a source close to the team. 'Willie is a class act and a good baseball man, but it's clear these guys continue to not respond to him. They are playing very similarly now as when he was the manager. Somebody has to be held accountable.'"

Just think, you could have CC Sabathia on your team with his lovely record of 1-3.
