A little more than a week ago, we heard that Mickey Callaway's job was safe -- and word on Sunday evening, following an embarrassing sweep in Miami, was that nothing had changed yet.
Make no mistake, the subject of Callaway's job security won't go away unless the team starts to win, and quickly. But after Sunday's game, Mets higher-ups had not reached the point of firing their manager.
Having said that, the team believes that its roster is severely underperforming.
One outside evaluator agreed on Sunday, saying "they're not this bad."
No one internally or externally denies that Callaway, hired by previous GM Sandy Alderson, will pay with his job if the season doesn't turn around quickly.
