You gotta play the cards you're dealt, and Mickey Callaway is hitting each tournament with a short hand. While he doesn't hire the guys for the job, it is his responsibility to get the most out of them each game.

I've been saying this for years, and Terry Collins was paddling the same boat. Baseball is a team effort, but sometimes it does take just that one extra piece to make things click. Pushing a team over the edge. Cespedes in '15 was a prime example. Guys were (and are still) out there for the picking, and that's not on Mickey.
If the Mets showed up and won yesterday, the narrative somewhat changes coming back home. Instead, they end their pathetic west coast road trip with a 2-5 record. Not that 3-4 is a whole lot better, but considering the fashion they blew a couple of their games, it could have easily been a very respectable 5-2 trip.
Not quite sure where I'm going with all this, but one thing is absolutely one billion percent certain. Nobody on our bench should be smiling when a Met gives up a home run, especially the man in charge. Not a good look, Mickey.

Lots of baseball left this season. If they're given a couple more cards, I'm still confident this Mets team can make something special happen.
The Mets are 5 games out with 4 MONTHS left to play. They’re not “done” by any stretch of the imagination, but cool if that makes you sleep better at night.— Darren Meenan (@DarrenJMeenan) June 1, 2019
