The history of the New York Mets has been one long roller coaster ride. They have had great highs and many long lows. The same could be said about their rookie manager, Mickey Callaway. It was a lights out start with an 11-1 record. The balance of the year has been the aforementioned roller coaster. Some have speculated that Callaway is in over his head, but it isn’t his fault that he has no depth to replace injured players.
Who knows what the future holds for Callaway? Maybe he is in over his head. He could finally get a roster that is complete in the talent department. That would send his career into the stratosphere.
