Mets Fire Randolph, Peterson

News came over the wire early this morning that the Mets have fired manager Willie Randolph, pitching coach Rick Peterson, and first base coach Tom Nieto.  Jerry Manuel becomes the interim manager.

I've mentioned before - manager news isn't really within the scope of this website.  But, I figure it's easier to toss up an item here rather than explain that to well-intentioned emailers all day.

The Mets are 34-35, 6.5 games out of the NL East with about 57% of the season left to go.  Baseball Prospectus puts their playoff odds somewhere between 7-19%.
