Showalter? Baker? Where Mets could turn if Callaway must go Mickey Callaway is still the Mets’ manager for many reasons. The most important, though, has nothing to do with his likability, wealth of pitching knowledge or even ownership’s distaste for eating around the $1.7 million he is owed through next year. Callaway’s greatest defense is simply, if not him...
