Mickey Callaway’s shaky two-year Mets tenure ended Thursday with a pink slip. The manager was fired by the Mets, the team announced, allowing general manager Brodie Van Wagenen to pursue his own man for the job.

“We want to thank Mickey for his consistent work ethic and dedication over the last two seasons and I’m certain these characteristics will serve him well in his next opportunity,” Van Wagenen said in a statement. “A decision like this is never easy, however, we believe it is in the best interest of the franchise at this time.”

The Mets will market the hell out of the next manager this offseason because there is likely going to be little else they can do.

Mickey never impressed.

I just hope this doesn't stop them from trying another new guy.

Mickey still getting paid more then Pete Alonso to not manage lol

If we can’t get Joe Maddon I’d go with Girardi, Hurdle or Showalter

It would be surprising if Maddon didn't wind up with the Angels now that Ausmus has been sacked.

Not interested in Hurdle.

Showalter or Girardi would be fine, just not another "Yes" man/Wilpon stooge.

What makes anyone think the Wilson’s will pay for a big name.

Apparently Jose Reyes wasn’t a big fan either with his subtweet lol

If he’s blaming Mickey for him stinking and his career being over that’s just the king of pettiness though.

Always felt like Mickey was one step behind the guy in the other dugout. For all the grief TC got, he was the baseball equivalent to Einsten compared to the Mick...
