So Where Does Willie Go Now???

Max ColtenCorrespondent IJune 17, 2008

With Willie Randolph's dismissal as the manager of the New York Mets early Tuesday morning, one major question lingers, where will Willie go next. Many including myself believe he has shown he can manage a major league baseball team and should get another shot at managing. So, Where?

Now the most obvious answer is that he will take the subway right back to the Bronx, being welcomed with open arms by Hank Steinbrenner but the Yankees have a manager, so what would Randolph do? Most likely, he would be brought in as a bench coach or possibly a minor league manager holding him in the event Girardi doesn't work out.

There will be other and possibly better options for the former Mets skipper though in places like Seattle, Milwakee, Cleveland, or San Diego, all teams with talented players and possible openings for the managerial position by the end of the year.

Now, that is not to say that Willie can't find a job with a "class b" or "c" team like the Pirates, Athletics, and Nationals, but should the talent that according to Omar Minaya, Randolph possesses, why should he go to one of those teams? Chances are, he won't.

The most likely outcome of this debacle is that Randolph will take the rest of the year off to recollect and try to see if a job with the Padres, Brewers, Yankees, or Indians opens up. Regardless, Willie Randolph is the former manager of the New York Mets and brings a pretty impressive resume to the table.
