Sunday marks the finale of the 2019 regular season for the Mets. And it could very well mark the end of Mickey Callway's reign as the club's manager.
The Mets won't be going to the postseason again, so GM Brodie Van Wagenen and the rest of the front office will head into the offseason looking to make some moves to change that come 2020. Callaway's job status has been a question throughout the season, especially when the Mets were faltering early on in the first half.
Callaway, though, isn't thinking about his future right now. He wants to finish on a high note like the rest of his squad, so there won't be anything to worry about except getting a win this afternoon.
"I don't have any anxiety," he told reporters before the game. "I'm proud of what we did this year. Finish strong today and then I'm proud of how hard I worked and I left everything on the field."
When the Mets do finish things up today and Callaway addresses his players before exiting, he'll be driving 19 hours home.
"I've been packing up my apartment for the last week or so," he said.
Whether or not Callaway is packing up for good is unknown, but he is under contract through the 2020 season. SNY's Andy Martino reported earlier this week that team brass will meet early next week to determine what their decision will be.
All Callaway can do, then, is hope for a win in Game 162 and wait to see if his future remains in New York.
