After another late-inning, heart breaking loss to the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night, Brodie Van Wagenen called for a team meeting amongst the manager and the entire coaching staff.
BVW was heated at the fact that another quality Jacob deGrom start has went to waste. Van Wagenen then grabbed a chair and threw it and told manager Mickey Callaway to hold his “fucking press conference”. If reports are true, this is very unlike the new GM as he’s always had a very relaxed persona and character.
Van Wagenen was asked about the meeting and the General Manager was quoted saying that “I am not going to give the specifics to any of those meetings.”
Van Wagenen has caught a lot of slack and criticism from the Mets fanbase for executing the trade for Robinson Canó and Edwin Diaz, mostly because of Canó’s age, contract, as well as the two prospects given up by the Mets.
Reports also surfaced recently that BVW actually called Mickey Callaway from his home in New York, mid-game while the Mets were in Arizona to have Jacob deGrom pulled from the game. Very, very strange.
