Lots of folks begrudging Mickey Callaway's decision to use Edwin Diaz in that spot. Seemed obvious to me -- he's your best pitcher in a tie game. Use him.
The move I didn't agree with was pitching to DeJong with a man on third base and one out. Why not set up the double play?
Mickey Callaway says he was fine with the Mets and Cardinals playing out tonight's slip-and-slide ninth in the rain.
"It's in the umpires' hands at that point," Callaway said.
"It's tough when you give up a run and the ball doesn't leave the infield" - Mickey Callaway says he understands Jacob deGrom's frustration
Mickey Callaway said Justin Wilson will make another rehab start, this time for Brooklyn.
Canó and Nimmo will continue their rehabs
Yup. It’s annoying every single thing that happens .. people try to find a coach or manager to blame.
These are professional baseball players. They need to do their job. Diaz blowing the games has zero to do with Dave Eiland and zero to do with Mickey Callaway.
Mickey Callaway says that the starting pitchers' pitch counts are 115 without needing extra monitoring in their next start. Says he's willing to go over by a few pitches in cases like Jason Vargas' complete game #Mets @MetsMerized
Mickey Callaway should have been fired 3 weeks ago
Mickey Callaway is just clueless.
Fucking mickey Callaway!!!!! Incompetent bufoon!!
Mickey Callaway says Justin Wilson will make another rehab appearance. Robinson Cano and Brandon Nimmo continuing rehabs as well. #mets
Mickey Callaway is a piece of sh*t and needs to get fired.
Mickey Callaway should be fired (probably for the 4th or 5th time this season) for having Diaz resume pitching in this game. Unbelievably incompetent decision after getting rocked last night. #Mets
📣📣 Yes, you picked up where you left off 👉 #Fire Mickey Callaway and send Diaz to Minors🔥🔥🔥 #LGM
I will be shocked if the Mets win this next game tonight. The dugout looked frustrated and dead after the Mcniel groundout. Lose tonight and they have no choice but to fire Mickey Callaway. This loss was on two people: Diaz and Callaway. Plain and simple. #Mets
I cannot stress enough how absolutely, mind-numbingly stupid it is that Mickey Callaway is sending Edwin Diaz out there to pitch the 10th inning of this suspended game. Stunning. Indefensible. #Mets
Mickey Callaway said, “we’ll see,” when asked about whether he’d use Edwin Diaz should tonight’s first game need extras.
We walk past eight boxes of Edwin Diaz “FINISH” t-shirts to get Mickey Callaway to explain his closer issues in the clubhouse, the Mets fail to reach .500 again.
Cardinals 5, Mets 4
Mickey callaway always sounds like a cuckold
How did it take until just now for me to realize how much mickey callaway’s voice and facial expressions are similar to louis ck’s
Mickey Callaway has proven himself to be inflexible, predictable, poor in his in-game decision making and lacking the fire needed in this town. I’ve seen enough. He is holding this team back and needs to go while there is still time left to salvage this season. #mets
Here's a question for you. I like to know why didn't you walk the batter Paul Dejong when behind him the batter up next wasn't having a good game? WHY NOT PLAY FOR THE DOUBLE PLAY? I guess this one is on you again just like when you took out Noah and lost.
No Diaz fault this is all on Mickey Callaway not being an active manager! When they fire him the Mets will be ready to win ! https://t.co/iHXpNPkFOb
As if we needed another reason to fire Mickey Callaway, he sends Diaz out for a second inning in the suspended game, after not having his stuff last night, AND burning him for the game later tonight. You CAN’T make this shit up!!!
Good thing Mickey Callaway is using Edwin Diaz rn in the 10th inning of a non save situation he blew last night when he might be needed for real save chance tonight #firemickey
Mickey Callaway mentioned yesterday night that, had the teams still been playing, Edwin Diaz might have continued pitching.
He's out for the 10th inning.
What separates Joe Girardi from Mickey Callaway is bullpen usage. Girardi, when he managed the @Yankees
, knew how to utilize his bullpen. Something Callaway has no clue of whatsoever. I'm telling you, Joe Girardi is just what the @Mets
need as a manager.
I’m tired of listening to Mickey Callaway’s excuses in the post game interviews.
Should have stepped in and told the groundskeepers to keep putting the tarp on.
Last time at checked none of the Mets are meteorologists. This loss was completely unnecessary.
This agree to disagree thing with Mickey Callaway is getting really fucking old.
Met fans are bashing Mickey Callaway for... using his best reliever. He did what gave the team the highest probability to win THIS game. Diaz just has to execute.
If your a Mets fan that continues to blame Mickey Callaway after every garbage outing from Edwin Diaz than there’s a major problem with your thinking. #Mets #Callaway #Diaz #MoreExcuses
Dude they wouldn't fire Mickey Callaway if he decided to start Edwin Diaz for 100 pitches and 10 earned runs while telling Pete Alonso to hit more ground balls. If he wasn't fired by now he isn't getting fired til end of the year
It’s mind boggling to me that Mickey Callaway still has a job, how long is @GMBVW
can sit there & watch him under achieve? 2 games under .500! Shit or get off the pot. #Mets
Lmao!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mickey callaway is a joke of a manager.. just another puppet
I am so glad Mickey Callaway kept Edwin Diaz in the game... and he lost it. He carries the full responsibility of the loss. Diaz sucks. #Mets
Mickey Callaway Sucks needs to be fired today 🤬
Mickey Callaway is a bloody idiot
Seems like you are a bad GM. You need to fire Mickey Callaway and clean house. Trade everyone you can not named Degrom, Alonso and Mcniel.
When is Mickey Callaway going to realize that Diaz is horrible in the tenth? I’m not complaining though, huge win for the Cards.
Mickey Callaway is completely and utterly incompetent. There’s no reason to watch this team until he’s fired
I’m normally positive and try to stay reasoned and rational but I’ve seen enough. Mickey Callaway is in way over his head and is completely lost. He needs to be replaced immediately. #mets
Yep Mickey Callaway is a dumbass
Fuck you mickey Callaway for putting Diaz out there again - fuck you #mets
Yes have Diaz pitch the 10th even tho he blew the save in the 9th. These are the decisions a good manager like Mickey Callaway makes
That is all Mickey Callaway fault... why are you starting Diaz for that inning? Why did you not IBB DeJong and set up the double play? This guy literally clueless.
why does Mickey callaway have 2 pitchers up. He literally had 19 hours to decide who to pitch the 10th
Mickey Callaway didn't really have anything new to say about Robinson Cano or Brandon Nimmo. They're going to continue to play rehab games and be reassessed everyday.
El manager de los Mets, Mickey Callaway, dijo que Jed Lowrie (rodilla, tendón de la corva) no está "cerca" de ver acción. #Mets
FUENTE: Anthony DiComo
Did Mickey Callaway not understand that if they don’t pull the tarps off in the 8th inning the #Mets get the win? Like what exactly were you arguing for? We were up 2 runs?
It's somewhat annoying that pitching gurus Mickey Callaway and Dave Eiland cant seem to help any of the pitchers on the team.
6/1, 6-5 loss at Arizona. It was 5-1. Familia should never have gotten the eighth. One of a couple games you could definitively and undeniably blame on Mickey Callaway. That was your chance to take 2 of 3.
We could’ve left the west with a 4-3 road trip. Gotta finish that.
On hearing that it was the @mets who lobbied the umps last night to continue the game, my husband (who doesn't follow baseball all that closely) replied, " Well, if there was ever a reason to fire Mickey Callaway!"
you need to make a Mickey Callaway song to the tune of Toni Basil’s “Mickey”
