The Mets officially announced the hiring of former Indians Pitching Coach, Mickey Callaway, as their new Manager. Despite wanting it to be Joe McEwing (SOLELY based on being a fan when I was younger and also going to day care where he played college ball), I’m excited.
This is a young, pitching oriented coach. He’s learned under the tutelage of Terry Francona, who is a baseball mastermind. Also, I’m very happy that the team went out of their comfort zone of coaches that they were previously familiar with. I don’t know if this will ultimately workout (Probably not. The Wilpons are still the owners. Also, it’s the Mets. Won’t even be Callaway’s fault), but so far I like him. C’mon and check out this clip from today:
