Well, I myself could say that it was hard to see the Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway get the mets manager job, lets look at Mickey Callaway’s incredible 5 year career here in Cleveland who has developed the Current ace for the Indians Corey Kluber to a Cy Young award in 2014 and likely this year and finish 3rd in 2016. He took over this job in 2013 the same year current manager Terry Francona took the Managerial job following a 68 win 2012 season. Kluber had yet to be in the Indians Rotation the year Callaway took over and he also lead Carrasco to 18 wins this season as well. Now the next chapter of Mickey Cllaway’s career begins, with a Mets team that won 72 games this season and not much talent in pitching at least this year, will take over as Manager.
In my opinion of watching baseball, I would just like to say that I have never watched somebody pitch the ball like Corey Kluber did from June 1 until the end of the regular season, losing only 2 games because of no run support, I would like to thank Mickey Callaway for developing Kluber into one of baseballs best starting pitchers and the other guys like Carrasco and Bauer to great seasons.
The only difference that Callaway is going to now, he has to manage the Mets’ games and not watch and develop pitchers, the Indians do not have to play Callaway and the mets until 2019 and those 3 games will be played away at Citi Field in New York City.
Indians pitching coach job is now vacant and they are in search for a new pitching coach, which will probably be named soon.
Good Luck in New York, Mickey Callway
