I assume you mean because he took that hit last night?



]Mike Piazza left last night's game in the sixth inning after being hit on the wrist by Victor Zambrano's wild pitch, but he said the ball missed his healing pisiform bone. "It's OK," Piazza said. "It's a little sore. I should be all right. I'll just keep icing it and see what happens." ... Recently, manager Willie Randolph has joined some his coaches walking laps around the stadium, and it is interesting to note only one member of the core group has not taken part in the pregame sessions: pitching coach Rick Peterson. His job seems secure, but Randolph and GM Omar Minaya said the staff will be re-evaluated following the season, with possible changes

Ed Coleman provided some insight yesterday afternoon. While he didn't go as far as to say that they are in violent disagreement, he said that "Peterson is a numbers guy, while Willie likes to go with his gut".

Seems to me that conflict has to be resolved in some way if Peterson is going to be there next season.

It probably boils more down to Willie not getting Rick his bread toasted.

Keeping coaches, players, and the media in order is all part of his learning pro-
cess. I'm sure there can be a reasonable reconcilation.

If the Mets weren't so hot right now, "Walking Away from Peterson?" might have been the lead.
