Willie Randolph

Apparently, beyond help.


  • What's interesting about this is that Reyes so far has been Willie's polar opposite. Reyes is mercurial, flashy, and swings at his own shadow. Randholph was steady, understated and didn't mind a good 90-foot walk.

    I think it's a second base thing. Joe Morgan was the smartest ballplayer I ever saw and is now the broadcaster with the tallest dunce cap in the classroom. And here's Willie batting a guy who wouldn't know ball four if Bouton hit him in the head with the book (last line stolen from cyberspace).

  • I think you nailed it. It IS a second base thing. Look at Ryne Sandburg and the inane things he writes.
