Randolph Gets Extension

The New York Mets agreed to a 3-year extension with manager Willie Randolph. During the 2006 season, GM Omar Minaya had publicly stated his intentions of extending Willie.

Randolph, who last year led the Mets to their first division title since 1988, had been slated to earn $700,000 this year in the final season of a three-year contract. He is expected to be paid at least $2 million by the 2009 season, a source familiar with the deal told the Daily News, which first reported the new agreement. The newspaper said the Mets have an option for Randolph for 2010.
It's about time Wilpon showed Willie the money. He will no longer be paid like a Toledo Mudhen bullpen coach - in MLB relativity. I'll take his meager annual $700,000 salary anytime he'd like to trade places.
