Bring Bobby V Home
Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports includes Willie Randolph among an elite group of three managers who "look vulnerable."
Rosenthal correctly points out that "the Mets would be best served by a take-charge, Jim Leyland-type who would compensate for their lack of clubhouse leadership."
Alas, Rosenthal does not believe the Mets have many options right now. Indeed, he rules out Bobby Valentine, since Valentine is in Japan managing the Chiba Lotte Marines.
Bobby V would provide both the leadership and the baseball intelligence that has been so sorely lacking. It's time to fly him home. It's time for Omar Minaya to call the Marines and offer Dave Kingman for Valentine. If necessary, Randolph, El Duque, Fernando Tatis and Keith Van Horn can all be added to the deal in exchange for Marines outfielder Benny Agbayani.
