The Milwaukee Brewers have hired ex-Mets manager Willie Randolph as their new bench coach.
Randolph was a possibility for the managerial job for the Brewers, and was also offered a job on the Washington Nationals staff, but declined. Reports were also swirling that Randolph could have a shot at the Mariners top spot.
I'm guessing the Mets are off the hook for the money owed on the rest of Randolph's contract? I'm not 100 percent sure, but I think the Mets are up a few million because of this.
Good luck, Willie. Hope you enjoy beer and brats.
