"I just called Jeff and told him we're having another one tomorrow, because if we're gonna score runs like that we'll meet every day," Callaway joked.
"We meet all the time. Very standard that we meet after a road trip, more of a, 'How did things go?' This meeting had a different focus. This meeting was about, 'How can we be better? How can we get going in the right direction?' And it was very productive. It was early, the players weren't even here yet. So I'm sure they'll read about it.
"But it was just more about, 'Hey, what do we have to do to put ourselves in a better position?' Because none of us are satisfied with what's been going on to this point. It's (a) meeting that you have to have throughout the season. Even when things are going good, you want to continue to renew and be the best you can possibly be and not be satisfied. Like I said, this one did have a little bit of a different focus than our normal get-togethers after a road trip."
SNY's Andy Martino reported that Callaway's job is not in danger right now, and his job status wasn't discussed during the meeting.
Callaway did admit there's a sense of urgency because of how the team had played recently. The Mets had lost 10 of 14 games before Friday's victory, which brought their record to 18-20, 3.5 games behind the NL East-leading Phillies. Friday's win hasn't changed that sense of urgency.
"I do feel that way, which is why I was trying to express what I expressed a few minutes ago about, this is one game," Callaway said. "We can feel good about this tonight. We've got to come in tomorrow and have the same persistence, the same effort, the same focus that we did tonight and continue to win and start piling those on. I think we've won two out of three. We've got to keep going."
As far as what conclusions were reached in the meeting about how to get better, Callaway declined to reveal specifics.
"Those type things probably need to stay private, but we talked about a lot and we understand that things have to be better," he said.
