 CBS 2 - New York News: Mets Name Willie Randolph Manager
The longtime New York Yankees coach was hired Wednesday night by the Mets, taking over as manager of a troubled team trying to compete with its crosstown rival for success, free agents and fans.
Randolph nearly was hired by Cincinnati after the 2000 season but withdrew from consideration after the Reds offered a relatively short contract at a below-market salary.
In New York, Randolph met Wednesday with new general manager Omar Minaya, who also had second interviews with the other finalists, Texas hitting coach Rudy Jaramillo and former Houston and Anaheim manager Terry Collins.

Benitez has made four trips to the post season (1996 and '97 with the Orioles and 1999 and 2000 with the Mets), helping his team advance to the league championship series each time.
Over 628 big league contests, the Ramon Santana, Dominican Republic native has forged a 32-33 lifetime ledger with a 2.85 ERA for the Baltimore Orioles (1994-98), New York Mets (1999-2003), New York Yankees (2003), Seattle Mariners (2003) and Marlins (2004).
With the free agent signings of Benitez and nine-time Gold Glove shortstop Omar Vizquel, the Giants have addressed two of their main off-season objectives of improving their bullpen and defense by bringing in experienced, post season-tested All-Stars to upgrade those areas.

Gooden eventually became something of a nomad, following his 10 1/2 seasons as a Met with a season of suspension, two seasons of modest achievement with the Yankees, two seasons with the Indians and a 2000 season that he split among the Astros (one game), the Devil Rays (eight) and the Yankees (18).
Gooden is second to Seaver in Mets victories -- 198 to 157 -- and Mets strikeouts -- 2,541 to 1,875 -- and third to Seaver (2.57) and Jerry Koosman (3.09) in ERA.
Gooden had just completed a season of such brilliance and dominance that the bandwagon that was to deliver him to the Hall of Fame five summers after his retirement was already rolling and overcrowded.

 Roberto Alomar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 2000, with Vizquel committing just three errors all season long, the entire infield committed just 34 errors, one more than the record set by the New York Mets a year previous.
There seemed no doubt that his immortality was assured, but then he was traded to the New York Mets before the 2002 season, in the same trade that brought outfielders Matt Lawton and Alex Escobar to the Indians.
Beside this, the Vizquel-Alomar duo won three Gold Gloves, joining a select list of eight shortstop-second baseman duos have won the honor in the same season while playing together.

 Colorado Rockies : News : Colorado Rockies News
DeJean, who broke in with the Rockies 1997-2000, returned to the club in July after beginning the year with the New York Mets and helped spearhead the improvement by pitching frequently.
DeJean's signing already puts Colorado's bullpen ahead of where it was at the start of last season, when four of the seven pitchers were rookies and just one -- Byung-Hyun Kim, who proved miscast as a middle reliever -- had more than two full seasons in the Majors.
Colorado plans to use DeJean in the seventh inning, and potential free agents Miceli (who missed the end of the season with a broken foot), Witasick (traded to Oakland) and potentially Atlanta's Chris Rietsma are among those who could be pursued as a bridge to closer Brian Fuentes.

Shinjo, who last played in Japan for the Hanshin Tigers in 2000, spent most of the 2003 season with the New York Mets’ minor league Triple-A Norfolk team and signed with the Fighters in the offseason.
Shinjo’s best season in the majors was his first year with the Mets in 2001 when he had 10 homers, 56 RBIs and a.268 batting average in 123 games.
Few doubt Shinjo has the ability to help the Fighters on the field, but many will be keenly watching his re-entry into Japanese baseball, where players are expected to blend in and keep a low profile.

SAN DIEGO — The San Diego Padres acquired outfielder Mike Cameron from the New York Mets for utility player Xavier Nady on Friday.
Nady, a second-round draft pick in the 2000 amateur draft, was billed as a super-sub last season, playing at first and third base, and all three outfield positions.
Before the Padres agreed to complete the deal, they wanted to make sure Cameron's vision was OK following a face-to-face collision with Mets teammate Carlos Beltran in the outfield at San Diego's Petco Park on Aug. 11 that ended Cameron's season.
