Despite all the speculation regarding the employment status of Mickey Callaway, a well-known voice in the locker room has expressed his dissatisfaction with the dance "will-they-do-they-do not they".
Noah Syndergaard went so far as to call the rumors about Callaway's precarious status "bulls —" after the Mets were sidelined by the Marlins, 3-0, and swept by the team in last place.
"I respect Mickey's hell," said Syndegaard, who suffered defeat on Sunday despite a good start. "Mickey has tremendous leadership values, it's kind of bullshit right now thinking there might be a change, because we're so early in the season and there's nothing left a very small step to put all this together, not on him. "
Syndergaard allowed two earned runs on five hits – the most on a weak touch – in seven innings with three strikeouts.
This is not the first time that Syndergaard has shown loyalty to coaching staff. In 2017, when Terry Collins's plan was about to disappear, the right-hander was arguing several times with his coach Dan Warthen.
And Syndergaard is not alone in the locker room. Todd Frazier, a veteran's presence, supported Callaway's decision-making after Saturday's loss.
"I think he's doing a good job," he said. "He can not go there and hit, he's doing the composition, he's putting the guys in at the right time, and we're not producing." At the end of the day, he's doing the composition, he's doing his job, C & # 39; is an excellent manager, and our goal is to win games and we do not do it for him … If we do not produce, it's a bit with us.
"We just have to step up our efforts, that's what counts, as hitters, as a collective group … let's focus on what we're good for and hope it gets us going."
