Brodie Van Wagenen was reportedly very unhappy with the Mets' coaching staff after Friday's loss to the Phillies.
According to a report from the New York Post, Van Wagenen held a 'heated meeting' with the team's coaching staff, culminating with the Mets GM throwing a chair.
Friday's loss to the Phillies featured the Mets' latest disastrous bullpen outing, as Edwin Diaz was brought into a 2-2 game in the ninth inning, only to allow four earned run while recording just one out. Jeurys Familia was then brought in, only to allow an earned run of his own, as the Phillies broke the game wide open at 7-2.
According to the Post's report, Van Wagenen claimed that holding meetings with coaches is nothing outside of the ordinary, though he would not comment on the specifics of this particular occasion.
Mickey Callaway was asked about the meeting after Saturday's win over the Phillies, and though he declined to comment on what was said, he did talk about his relationship with Van Wagenen.
"It's fantastic," Callaway said. "We're both passionate guys that want to win."
The Post reports that part of Van Wagenen's frustration dealt with the fact that the team wasted another strong outing by Jacob deGrom, who allowed just two earned runs over seven innings. It was the third straight game that the Mets lost despite a quality start from their ace.
Callaway held his postgame press conference after this reported meeting.
