    You had me until that last sentence.

    Callaway had precisely the type of manager mindset you describe in the first two sentences. The man not once admitted when he was wrong, even when he was very wrong.

    My biggest problem with Callaway was he was seemingly incapable of growing and learning from his mistakes, and that, in my mind, made him an idiot beyond just managing a baseball team. Power to him. He can now go be wrong with some other team if that's his decision.
    I dont see him getting a managers job for a while.

    By a while I mean Halley's Comet would have come around twice before he is hired as a manager.

    He may get a job as a pitching coach, but after this showing is a hard guy to trust.

    Mickey quotes from the first post in this thread:
    "It is very evident we are prepared in every way to go out there and do something special,"

    "They look to their left, and they look to their right and they know they can contend. We have the players that can do it. It has become very evident in my time here at Port St. Luice... it is very evident that we are prepared in every way to go out there and do something special. If we do not do things, it's going to be on me. The front office has gotten us the players, the coaching staff is the best coaching staff in the big leagues."

    "This is the best group of arms and stuff I've ever seen from top to bottom."

    "We're going to care more about the players than anyone ever has before," the 42-year-old Callaway said, wearing his new No. 36 Mets jersey. "We're going to know that they are human beings and individuals; and this is going to be a group that feels that every day they come into the clubhouse. Our main concern is to show them that we know this game is difficult and we care about you as a player, a human being and about your personal life.


    Well you didnt do things and they held you to it. At least a year too late.

    The best coaching staff in the big leagues..........front office got us the players.

    I wish I could say I am going to miss Mickey, but nope cant do it.

    Well I didnt exactly mean he was losing his marbles --- he wasn't that good to start with was more my point.

    Going into the off season - in my opinion - its a slippery slope for Mets fans. Callaway needs to go and Maddon is a name, A washed up name - The Mets love those.

    Just got the alert that Maddon won't return to the Cubs. I'd be shocked if they don't interview/solicit Girardi for that job.
    I am sure they will. I hope the Mets do the same.

    The Cubs is the better job I believe. Better GM, better owners. The Mets could have a vastly different pitching staff.

    Maddon isn't a good manager anyway. I am hoping he isn't the Met manager.

    Maddon is well liked because he seems to be really nice guy. He doesn't things that give him a lot of positive attention as they are well documented. His baseball X's & O's are sorely lacking.

    His is one of the most overrated managers in recent times.

    I want Girardi.

    Good Point, assuming Maddon will get the boot. Maddon's lost control of the clubhouse at times but with today's players, I'm not sure that would matter.

    Girardi's been waiting for the Cubs job to open up. This could be the offseason for him.

    I wasn't suggesting, nor do I want Showalter(his voice drives me crazy), Girardi (I get tense typing his name) or Maddon (too cool for Queens). Maddon isn't even technically available.

    Mickey expects to stay. We'll see if he's correct.

    Who would you like to be hired should Mickey be out?

    I knew 3rd grade science would come in handy one day.
    LOL
