Fate decided

The Phanatic Magazine has learned that New York Mets manager Willie Randolph will be fired by the organization on Saturday. A source said that an announcement after constant speculation about Randolph's job security during a season in which the Mets have underachieved, hovering near the .500 mark.

Randolph, who has a career record of 300-252 in four seasons with the Mets, has a contract that pays him $2 million this year and $2.25 million next year, the final year of the pact. His only playoff appearance came in 2006, when the Mets lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 7 of the NLCS.

There was no word on the fate of pitching coach Rick Peterson or any of the other coaches, or whether or not bench coach Jerry Manuel would take over for the rest of the season.
