Firing Mickey Callaway probably doesn’t make sense right now

Getting rid of the manager in the middle of the season may make the fan base feel better, but it usually doesn’t solve the problem. It goes without saying that the Mets, coming off an embarrassing sweep at the hands of the last-place Marlins over the weekend, were not in a great place, and it’s inevitable that there would be finger-pointing over who deserves the blame for the team’s recent tailspin. That finger-pointing predominantly came in the form of speculation over the security of Mickey Callaway’s job, as many believed he would not survive the Marlins series. Brodie Van...

Showalter? Baker? Where Mets could turn if Callaway must go

Mickey Callaway is still the Mets’ manager for many reasons. The most important, though, has nothing to do with his likability, wealth of pitching knowledge or even ownership’s distaste for eating around the $1.7 million he is owed through next year. Callaway’s greatest defense is simply, if not him, who? If your knee-jerk response is...
