There are times I don’t understand Willie Randolph. Today is one of them.
Willie is constantly saying he talks to his players all the time. Well, the original starting line-up had Moises Alou in left and Luis Castillo at second. The revised line-up has David Newhan in left and Ruben Gotay at second.
Just a day off he says, although both have their bumbs and bruises. If you know the temperature of your team then you don’t make a line-up and make changes just for a day off. Isn’t that done before hand? Especially when you said the day before you go by what you feel when you wake up.
That said, let’s move on to Paul Lo Duca. Today GM Omar Minaya said Mike DiFelice wouldn’t have been designated for assignment if Lo Duca couldn’t have played.Ã‚Â A half-hour earlier, Randolph said he wouldn’t rule out the DL on Lo Duca.
Pick a story, any story …. but stick with it.
