The local papers have weighed in and made the Mets' firing of manager Willie Randolph their number 1, 2 and 3 topics. Angry over how Randolph was fired (flying him all the way out to Los Angeles?!? And Omar Minaya claiming that the media speculation pushed him to fire Randolph?), yes, but the tabloids were probably angry over something else: The fact that the firing took place around midnight PST/3 a.m. EST, which meant it was too late to get into yesterday papers!
Therefore, today is all about the Mets. The Daily News goes for a Randolph cover, Newsday opts for Minaya, and the Post brings out the sad Mr. Met. Good one, Mets organization--think of all the little kids who will see the Post cover and wonder why Mr. Met is so upset!
