Met with Willie Randolph today and he’d like to get a pitcher, too. What team doesn’t?
Among other things, Randolph said:
-He still has a bad taste about the end of last season and hopes his players are still bothered by it, too.
-It is was important to get off to a good start.
-He’d like to get to get an innings eater, primary because there’s nothing guaranteed about Mike Pelfrey or Phil Humber.
-John Maine and Oliver Perez can’t afford to take a step back.
-He hasn’t changed his mind about Jose Reyes’ second half, saying it was just a slump at the wrong time. Randolph also said he’ll look to spell Reyes more often.
-Carlos Gomez needs to play instead of languish on the bench.
-There are no plans to move Aaron Heilman out of the bullpen.
