It was only a couple of weeks ago when New York Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said Callaway would be the team's manager for the "foreseeable future," but the skipper made what he believes to be a blunder Tuesday night against the San Francisco Giants and issued an apology for the decision.

Callaway opted to pull starter Noah Syndergaard - who had thrown 103 pitches - with two outs in the seventh inning and replace him with Seth Lugo; a decision the starter appeared to be unhappy about.
