Wow....Now complaining Met fans can shut up about the hiring process.

Indian fans are not happy as I had mentioned. He helped a lot of their pitchers get back on track and career turned around. Also highly regarded and indians didn't want him to go.

I like that he's not a retread.

Other than that it's a big shrug.

Hard to have an opinion on this.

I’m sure we saved a few bucks.

Compared to hiring Dusty maybe...not compared to the guys we were actually looking at.

Calloway was almost certainly getting a job.

Credit the Mets for being proactive for once.

I actually love it is not a retread. Depending on the pitching coach hire, having a PC as a manager is pretty interesting...would have loved Viola in the role, but with the pitching injuries rampant, perhaps they are wanting to change the dynamic.

Wonder if Long stays around, or he moves on.

Eh, he might actually be the most "boring" choice given most of the fanbase probbly never heard of him until last week.

Not saying it's a bad move though...

Wonder if he brings Sandy Alomar Jr. as the bench coach?

You can tell that the FO is into punking people at this stage by leaking mixed signals and misdirection. They just don't want the public to know what they are really doing or thinking. It was probably Callaway all along.
