Stop the indifference! Remove Willie Randolph!
We, the undersigned and loyal, devoted fans and customers of the New York Mets organization, wish to express our deep displeasure towards the organization\'s decision to retain Willie Randolph as the team\'s manager and leader. Furthermore, we demand that he be removed from the club immediately and be replaced by an experienced and proven leader that will take a firmer stance against complacency and lack of work ethic among players, young and old alike. We were deeply stunned recently when our beloved team completed what is now heralded as the most devastating collapse in sports history. A disastrous turn of events that has left many a fan filled with crushing anguish and sorrow for a season lost. Once again we are subjected to a long, dreary winter with only hopes of next year or maybe the year after that to keep us warm while merry Yankee fans relish in our misery and their success as short-lived as it may be. Well gentlemen, these hopes are fading as the Mets continue to find new and creative ways to break our hearts and leave us staring in awe attempting to grasp what just happened. Over the decades we have offered our unwavering support and devotion both mentally and monetarily to an organization that has offered very little in return. Therefore, we are deeply concerned with the direction the organization is pursuing for the upcoming 2008 season. Mr. Randolph, although we\'re certain is a cheerful and generally pleasant human being, is by no means the leader and motivator this team requires if it wishes to attain that of the most coveted treasures in the baseball world, a World Series Ring. We, the fans, feel this organization owes us much more than it has given us and just ask that our pain and suffering serve as a catalyst for the beginning of a new era in the Mets franchise; One not driven by memories of a disastrous and disappointing end but rather by the passion and devotion of its fans that bleed blue and orange all year round with the faintest of hopes that maybe one day we too will be World Series Champions again.
