This is managing so bad that you could even suspect Callaway is wagering on Atlanta. But this should absolutely be the last straw. You cannot go forward with this kind of low IQ dolt managing your ballclub. It's embarrassing. Rich Kotite understood football better than Mickey Callaway understands baseball

No arguments here.  It’s not like Mickey became a better manager overnight because the Mets were winning for a while.  The stupidity was just waiting to re-rear its ugly head.  And all of this is way too big for Callaway.

Typical Conforto performance in a huge game.   Complete with several Ks.  Hello Nick Swisher.  

Some guys just come up SO puny in games like this...David Wright knows plenty about that.

Not able to watch today but...what kind of stupidity is this from Callaway pulling Matz here. Was he hurt? He was rolling along.

He is so astonishingly stupid

Yeah I get wanting to put in Lugo but he wasn't going to finish the game regardless - you want Matz in the 7th while he's rolling with a low pitch count or you want Diaz plus whatever's behind the mystery box in the 9th?  Granted it never got that far but still, these managers can't wait to find the pitcher who doesn't have it that day.

And I don't remember the last time I saw a pitcher get pulled immediately after being allowed to hit lol

Mets don't get to Teheran like this very often (or ever) still it's Atlanta. They very well can gag this game up

Have not been impressed with Stroman at all. Laborious short outings. He just...doesn't seem good. He's giving us Vargas like production. Hanging by a thread at all times. When will we see the guy who pitched to a sub 3.00 ERA in the AL East?

As much as this team can make me lose my sh!t at times...looks like they’re going to do what I’d hoped for, in splitting the six games against the Nats and Braves.  Yeah, would’ve been nice to have won at least 4 after taking the first two from the Nats, but oh well.

As far as tonight’s game goes...when friggin’ salami bat Juan Lagares manages three hits, you know it’s your day.  Rosario goes 9-for-11 in the leadoff spot over the past two games.  This guy might soon be flirting with a .330 OB%, which seemed like an absolute pipe dream earlier this season.

Gotta sweep the Royals though.  Still some more tough games coming up.

Not to mention the Phillies have gotten 'new manager' bounce with a sweep capped off by Harper's walk-off GS.

Today was all about Alonso really. They were about to spin out of control but he really put them on his back and dominated this game

They absolutely have to sweep Kansas City now. Not that I'd bitch about 2 of 3 but they don't have much margin for error.

Reds helped us out today as well. Finally cooled down Washington

Yeah Phils score 1 in the eighth and then 6 in the ninth (with Harper’s GS) to erase a 5-0 deficit...just nuts.

Yeah Alonso is just a beast.  39 HR now.  Feels like he’ll find a way to get to 50.

And yeah, unfortunately 2 out of 3 is not going to feel good enough.  Agree fully.

Even with a 7 run lead you cannot have Gagnon out there more than an inning if he gets through it. He is scary bad. And shouldn't be in the majors

Looks like the many scrubs still inhabiting the ‘pen are going to make this one interesting.  10-7, but at least there’s two outs.

Well, Mickey shouldn’t really in the majors either, to be fair.

Oh Christ...the Human Torch is in.  

And this gutless turd immediately walks his first hitter on four pitches.  Tying run to the plate.  

Diaz somehow doesn’t completely fvck this up...Mets win, game over.  But goddamn.

If they lose this game there is no way Mickey manages tomorrow. It's just the worst managing I have seen ever. From anybody in any sport

They have to win this one first, good lord.  Maybe Matz can get the extra outs he should have yesterday :P

How often does Callaway have to exhibit his historic stupidity. GAGNON? And then Diaz?? 

It's like he doesn't want to win. He has no brain.

I was actually AT that game, lol.  Truly.  Saw it from pretty close too...to the right of home plate, at field level.

Yep...Wally Whitehurst and Julio Machado lol, talk about blasts from the past

I actually think it was Gary Cohen in his 1st or 2nd year as a full time radio guy for the Mets

For Murphy to even say damn on the air was a big big deal. Old school announcers like him you'd never hear a hint of a curse or even getting too high or low when good or bad things happen. Or too critical for that matter. I remember Mike and the Mad Dog replaying the final pitch of the 1999 NLCS and were stunned that Murphy described it as a "horrible horrible loss for the Mets" they'd never heard something like that from him

Yes...poor Whitehurst gave up a ton of seeing-eye groundball base hits from what I remember.  Franco had to come in to nail it down.  

I didn’t hear Murph’s famous quote of exasperation until after the game of course...but “damn”, it was perfect.  And hilarious.

On that carpet (well any of the horrid astroturfs) you'd see a lot of those annoying grounders scoot through. Just sped up balls that would otherwise be fielded. You'd see grounders go through the holes and split fielders for doubles.

Trash Royals somehow get to a cruising Syndergaard in the 5th. Now we're behind. Absolutely unacceptable to lose any of these games

That’s typical Noah...I know he’s been hot lately, but he can still be so frustrating sometimes.  And yet another double allowed to start off the sixth.

Pirates with a big comeback win against the Cubs.  Suffice it to say their pen has had some issues lately.
