>Breaking: Randolph May or May Not Be Fired

>Sources are telling the Mets Police that Mets manager Willie Randolph may or may not be fired during tonight's first batter.

If Jose Reyes falls behind early in the count, say 1 and 2, the Mets are expected to call time out and replace Randolph with the similarly tempered and similarly respected Jerry Manuel.

Notes: The Mets have come to terms with free agent outfielder Willie Mays. Mays signs a four year deal and is expected to be the every day left fielder. Team physicians, speaking under the condition that they not speak of Ryan Church, expect that with 35 years between starts Mays should have fresh legs.

Team broadcaster Howie Rose celebrated Father's Day with his family of "about 40,000" after the game at a local Applebees. Rose had to skip dessert because of the incredible hardship of having to take a plane, get 8 hours sleep and then go to work.

SNY's Lee Mazzilli is rumored to be sporting a faux 1955 World Champions ring in an attempt to take over for Jerry Manuel when the Mets move to Dodger Stadium East in 2009.
