Callaway gets vote of support as Mets snap losing skid

 

As Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen took the podium Monday, most of the highest-ranking members of the Mets’ baseball operations hierarchy — chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon, multiple assistant GMs, and more — filed into the team’s press conference room behind him. Manager Mickey Callaway stood there also, arms crossed, as Van Wagenen gave him the organization’s backing but not necessarily its fullest, long-term support.

Van Wagenen reiterated that Callaway, whose job has reportedly been at stake for weeks, will be the Mets’ manager “for the foreseeable future.” The GM did not, however, define in practical terms what that phrase means, nor guarantee Callaway’s standing for the rest of this season — let alone the rest of a contract that runs through 2020.
