Mets general manager Sandy Alderson voiced his support for manager Mickey Callaway on Tuesday ahead of the team's game against the Blue Jays.
"I like him more than I liked him in our first interview," Alderson said. "I think he's straightforward. He owns his mistakes. He's creative. He learns from experiences that he's had. Very positive. So I'm very pleased with what Mickey's done so far."
The Mets under Callaway have endured a rough stretch after starting the season 11-1. Callaway recently took blame for the team batting out of order in a game against the Reds earlier this month, noting that his mistake likely cost the team the game.
Callaway, 43, was hired by the Mets in October of last year to replace Terry Collins.
In his first season as a major league manager, Callaway has guided the Mets to a 19-18 record.
