The Mets have decided on a new manager

Cleveland Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway is reportedly set to become the next Mets manager

Long, who was viewed as an early front-runner, was the hitting coach for star-studded Yankees lineups. Over the next five years with Callaway leading the pitching staff, the Indians reached the postseason three times, won two division titles, captured an AL pennant in '16 and ranked first in the AL in wins (454) and ERA (3.64).

Among them were former players Robin Ventura, Joe McEwing and Alex Cora, current hitting coach Kevin Long, Brad Ausmus, Chip Hale and Manny Acta.

The New York Mets have hired the Cleveland Indians' pitching coach Mickey Callaway (left) to be their new manager.

He received a three-year deal, according to a source, and will replace Terry Collins, whose contract was up after seven seasons.

While Callaway won't be a pitching coach with NY, his experience will certainly have a big influence on a staff that had extremely high expectations going into last season and was ultimately decimated by injuries and regressions.

The Mets are tabbing a pitching-centric mind to lead a team with a rotation that is bursting with talent but has been decimated by injuries in recent seasons.

Seahawks Giants score, highlights Week 7 2017
But Richardson had to earn it, as he and Giants safety Landon Collins had simultaneous possession of the football in the air. With Avril to the IR, the Seahawks have 52 players on the active roster and will likely make a move to start the week.

Given the scarcity of pitching coaches who become managers, the move is somewhat unconventional. But general manager Sandy Alderson, as Padres president in 2006, gave Bud Black his first major league managing job. Long's contract expires on October 31, and he may decide a change of scenery is needed after not landing the manager's job. However, thanks to an all-around disappointing season in 2017, the Mets ultimately elected to remove Terry Collins from his role as manager en route to ultimately hiring Callaway.

Callaway pitched for the Tampa Bay Rays; the then-Anaheim Angels, now Los Angeles Angels (right); and the Texas Rangers (pictured) between 1999 and 2004.

The 42-year-old had a brief major-league career, making 20 career starts over five seasons, but nabbing a manager that has pitching experience in the majors and has worked with such a talented staff like the Indians is a smart acquisition for the Mets. Indians fans knew it was a matter of time before Callaway found himself in this position and it seems that time is now. "He isn't over analytical".

"As you watch him and you're with him every day, you see that confidence allowed him to have other voices, and get input from other people, and sift through that and take what he wanted" Francona told reporters after the season.

Cora, who was briefly a Met during his playing career in 2009-2010, was believed by many to be a good fit in NY.
