Wilpon Not Commenting On Willie

In what can be a very telling sign regarding Willie Randolph’s fate, Mets COO Jeff Wilpon has not been returning Willie’s phone calls.

1050 ESPN Radio’s Andrew Marchand is reporting:

Randolph tried to reach out to the Mets’ owners Wednesday, getting no response before he publicly apologized for the comments he made recently suggesting he was portrayed in a different manner than white managers.

When asked why Mets ownership didn’t return Randolph’s calls, Jay Horwitz, the team’s media relations vice president, told 1050 ESPN Radio’s Andrew Marchand on Thursday that “Omar Minaya returned the call on behalf of Mets’ ownership.”

Randolph and Mets Chief Operating Officer Jeff Wilpon usually speak often, which seems to make the Wilpons’ decision not to return Randolph’s call telling. Wilpon declined to comment Thursday when contacted by 1050 ESPN Radio.
