National Innocence Update: The Willie Randolph Firing

Willie Randolph was forced, FORCED, to get on a plane and fly from New York to LA, when he could have been fired on Sunday.

This assault on our national innocence WILL NOT STAND.

Willie Randolph was forced to fly cross-country! The horror! The botching!

As we all know from personal experience, there is nothing worse than flying in a private/chartered plane. Its awful. And as a baseball man -- and this is the cruelest part -- Randolph only very, very, very rarely flies. Maybe once or twice a year, and that's it. For his entire life, Randolph has probably only been on a plane five or six times, and they were all very short flights. Even without his job hanging on a thread, he was probably stressed out and terrified, simply because he had to fly. And again, it was one of those miserable private flights. According to what I've seen online, the Mets' flight stopped in Wilkes Barre, Cleveland (changed planes), Chicago, Des Moines, Kearney (changed planes), Grand Junction, Salt Lake City (refuel on runway) and Reno before they landed in LA 28 hours later.

And let's not even mention how terrible it was that he was in LA in the first place or the substandard, roach-infested motel rooms he stayed in. Call the Red Cross for this man.

I am sincerely sorry that Willie Randolph was forced to endure thus, and a earnestly hope that the media can properly shed light on this injustice.
