New York Mets Manager Mickey Callaway has been under a ton of scrutiny this far this season.
This is what comes with managing in the nation’s largest media market and for a team that entered the season with playoff expectations.
While New York has turned it around some recently, Tuesday night’s 9-3 10 inning loss to the hapless San Francisco Giants did not paint the team in the best of lights.
More importantly, Callaway‘s in-game decision making came under fire big time.
He pulled ace starter Noah Syndergaard in the bottom of the seventh with New York up 3-2. The stud starter had thrown just 103 pitches.
Needless to say, Syndergaard was not too happy about Callaway‘s decision.
San Francisco ultimately tied the game up at three off Seth Lugo after he replaced Syndergaard. The team then dropped six in the 10th to come out on top.
It’s decisions like these that have Callaway on the hot seat. By the looks of it, Syndergaard believes the seat should be hotter.
