On Friday, Mets COO Jeff Wilpon, GM Brodie Van Wagenen, and manager Mickey Callaway had a 90-minute meeting before the team's series opener against the Marlins, per The Post's Joel Sherman.
Why? Well, it wasn't to discuss Callaway's job status.
Major league sources told SNY's Andy Martino that Callaway's job is not in danger at this moment. Callaway's status was not discussed in the meeting, but rather the purpose was to discuss ways to help the team perform better.
We all saw what happened last season with the Mets -- it was an 11-1 start that freefalled into a hole they couldn't dig themselves out of. That is exactly what Wilpon and the rest of the organization doesn't want to happen again.
Entering tonight, the Mets have lost seven of their last 10 games, and five of their last six. But they have a great chance to turn things around against the league's worst Marlins and the Nationals, who are struggling mightily. They play these two franchises over the next 13 games, and then follow that up with a three-game series against the Tigers, who are 16-18 on the season.
