A Willie Randolph Lover

New York Mets

This story for mlb.com isn’t hard hitting journalism, but Marty Noble’s thing is getting into ballplayers’ heads. Cliff Floyd’s head (as well as his injured parts) has always seemed to get in the way, and now we know that Floyd has had a meeting with Randolph like the one Mickey Mantle had with Ralph Houk nearly a lifetime (if you’re me) ago. Floyd’s redemption is emotionally told, and if he can hold up all season long again he’ll make fool of those of us who thought he could only do that in one season out of four.
