Mets To Name Mickey Callaway Their Next Manager, According To Reports

The Mets are not going long for a manager this fall. Instead it’s Mickey, who so fine.

And it blew all of our minds.

According to multiple reports the Mets are set to give Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway the managerial job with a three-year contact.

Joel Sherman of the NY Post was the first to report in this.

Although Callaway doesn’t have any managerial experience he comes very highly regarded by leading the Indians pitching staff, which is considered one of the best in baseball.

The Mets hope he can perform the same magic on their young staff of starters most of which spent time on the disabled list this year.

With Matt Harvey in his walk year and Noah Syndergaard, Zack Wheeler and Steven Matz on the mend, the Mets are hoping Callaway can perform the same magic as he did with Corey Kluber and Tervor  Bauer.

Ultimately, this is a very forward thinking move by the Mets, who were thought to favor their own coach in Kevin Long or an experienced manager like Manny Acta.

However, the pick is Callaway and that’s oh so fine.
