Mickey Callaway's Post-Mets Career is Officially a Disaster
The New York Mets' franchise has long been plagued by the absence of a true leader in the clubhouse. Unlike their crosstown rival New York Yankees, the Mets seem to have a revolving door policy with their managers save some brief glory years with Bobby Valentine and Terry Collins.
Buck Showalter seems to be bucking that trend in 2022. Even amidst another slew of injuries, the Mets are easily one of the best teams in baseball at 33-17 and have their sights set on a World Series title come October.
But that hasn't stopped one former Mets manager from struggling in his post-New York career. Mickey Callaway was officially fired after managing only 33 games for the Acereros de Monclova in the Mexican League.

Callaway's squad went 16-17 to start the year before team management opted to fire the former Mets' skipper on Monday.
That's pretty much in line with Callaway's two years in New York. The former MLB pitcher managed the Mets from 2018-19, going just 163-161 in that span and missing the postseason both campaigns. New York promptly fired the skipper just days into the 2019 offseason.
This current Mets ball club is in a much different place. They lead the NL East by a staggering 9.5 games just two months into the season and hold the fourth-best odds (+850) to win the 2022 World Series on FanDuel Sportsbook.
