The New York Mets have announced that they’ve fired Mickey Callaway from the managerial position. Jeff Wilpon and Brodie Van Wagenen flew down to Florida to deliver Mickey Callaway the news in person. “This isn’t easy.” Van Wagenen told reporters. Jim Riggleman has also been relieved of his bench coach duties.
Former New York Mets first baseman and current color commentator Keith Hernandez had this to say about Callaway, “I don’t think not making the playoffs is what got him fired…I think that Brodie wants his man”.
