I keep hearing where New York sports fans are supposed to be the most sophisticated and knowledgeable in the country. Then show it.
For the past week I’ve been hearning how Willie Randolph should be fired and how much of a bum Billy Wagner is. To hear the panic on the radio and read it on the blogs—and yes, in the papers, too—tells me Mets fans don’t know how to live with prosperity and are waiting for the collapse. Man, that’s no way to follow a first-place team.
Wagner has four blow saves, more than all of last year. He’s liable to have four or five more. So what The percentages are with him. And, seriously, how bad a job can Willie be doing with the lead his team has?
