The NYT reports today that Joe Girardi has indeed been offered Willie Randolph’s vacated bench coach spot, throwing the managerial line of succession into disarray—just as we had predicted in our recent “Willie & Mel” post. (Okay, it didn’t take Nostradamus-like powers to see it coming, but we’ll take what we can get.) The Times also reports that Mel’s departure is not certain. We sure hope so. Joe, Joe, Mel, & Donnie? We’ll take our chances with that braintrust.
