CALLAWAY HITS NEW LOW

C

Nearly halfway into the season and the New York Mets have introduced a new character has been introduced on Sunday: Newsday reporter Tim Healey.

The antagonist was revealed during the postgame of Sunday’s 5-3 loss to the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field, a game in which the Mets — again — led going into the bottom of the eighth before Seth Lugo surrendered a three-run homer to Javier Baez that gave the Cubs the lead. When Healey questioned the decision to keep Lugo in the game, Mets manager Mickey Callaway verbally sniped back saying he wouldn’t make a pitching change “just because you think so.” You being the media.

After the media moved to the clubhouse the room was “tense,” according to media reports. Callaway passed Healey in the clubhouse and the reporter told Callaway he would “see you tomorrow.” The comment set off Callaway who turned around, shouting at Healey to leave the clubhouse.

The incident boiled over when Mets pitcher Jason Vargas stared down Healey before charging him and threatening to “knock you the f— out.” Vargas’ teammates held him back.

Healey left the clubhouse moments later. His social media feed has gone silent since the incident.

The Mets later released a statement saying:

“The Mets sincerely regret the incident that took place with one of our beat writers following today’s game in the clubhouse. We do not condone this type of behavior from any employee. The organization has reached out and apologized to this reporter and will have further discussions internally with all involved parties.”

The Mets have reached a new low. Callaway is beginning to publicly unravel and his team has lost its cool in the chaos.

It appears that script is going to be labeled as a dark comedy.
