Mets Fire Manager Mickey Callaway


The Mets have announced the firing of Manager of Manager Mickey Callaway, per Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

“We want to thank Mickey for his consistent work ethic and dedication over the last two seasons and I’m certain these characteristics will serve him well in his next opportunity,” Mets Executive Vice President & General Manager Brodie Van Wagenen said. “A decision like this is never easy, however, we believe it is in the best interest of the franchise at this time.”

Callaway posted a 163–161 (.503) record during his two seasons with the Mets. Callaway was named the Mets 21st manager in club history on October 23, 2017.

Honestly, I think it was time for a change, despite the positive finish, and the timing is perfect. The players are going to be upset, but they have plenty of time to calm down, reflect and connect with whomever the new manager is going to be.
