Mickey Who?

There were several reports today including The New York Times stating the Mickey Callaway, pitching coach of the Cleveland Indians, will be hired as Mets manager.  The details are in the Times article so it is not necessary to repeat them.  I never heard of him until today.  Is it advisable to hire someone with no managerial experience?  I have to wish him luck as he assumes the position.  The manager alone can't be blamed for the poor performance of the team.  The manager can't prevent injuries.

Usually, after the World Series, there is a flurry of activity.  Players can declare free agency and sign with other teams.  Who will the Mets retain or what if any free agents will they sign?  I assume that Mickey Callaway will hire a completely new coaching staff.

Stay tuned.
