It's been speculated for weeks and now it reportedly happened over night. Pitching coach Rick Peterson & 1st base coach Tom Nieto have been cut loose as well.
It was Omar Minaya's call according to Mets owner Fred Wilpon:
...That the decision to fire Willie Randolph and his coaches and the timing of the move were solely Minaya's.Bench coach Jerry Manuel will take over as interim coach.
What do you guys think? Who is more at fault here for the team's failures: Minaya, Randolph, or both?
Does anyone care?
