Randolph wants to return ….

Randolpoh: Wants another chance.

Randolpoh: Wants another chance.

Former Mets manager Willie Randolph told the New York Post he wants to manage again, but said he’s open to a return to coaching with the Yankees. He’s owed $2.25 million from the Mets.

Said Randolph: “I don’t get a sense much will open up. … Seattle is expected to open after they hire a GM and there is a chance the Brewers will have a vacancy. I will keep an eye on managing. To go back to the field as a bench coach or third-base coach is an option to explore. Let’s wait and see.”

Should Tony Bernazard get the Seattle job, that’s not going to work out for Willie.

I hope Randolph gets another job, but for that to happen, he’ll have to admit he made some mistakes and learned something with the Mets. That’s something he hasn’t done.

  1. very interesting article from davidoff.. willie to nationals and eventually acta to here…JD- were u impressed with acta when he was w/ the mets? and now with the nats?

  2. Jim (1): I always liked Acta. The players always seemed to hold him in high regard.-JD

  3. Randolph should try managing in the minors to gain experience. I understand he refused to do that because he was afraid of not being visible if he was in Syracuse or Portland.
    But there is a difference between being a coach and actually managing. Frank Robinson did that after his first job in Cleveland ended. Managed in Rochester for a year. People knocked him at the time for taking a step back but he ended up managing three big league teams.
