Schuck and His Lap Dog were doing some Big East basketball thing today, so I swung the tuner over to ESPN Radio. Just before noon, some crack reporter (can't remember whom) called in with a report after speaking with Jeff Wilpon. His breaking news update:
- Jeff said that an announcement will be made soon about an All Star Game to be played at Citi Field
- When asked about Willie Randolph's job security, Jeff said "he's under contract for the next couple seasons"
- There is some flexibility in the budget to add payroll if the right opportunity comes along
- There is a job waiting for Mike Piazza in the Mets organization, whether in broadcasting or in some capacity, whenever Mike decides to retire. Jeff said he's waiting for Mike to retire to discuss options with him.
So there you go.
