VIDEO: Mickey Callaway's Reaction After New York Blew 6-Run Lead to Nats Should Enrage Mets Fans

As manager of the New York Mets for almost two years, it's clear that Mickey Callaway does not understand New York. After a crushing loss to the Washington Nationals on Tuesday that featured a blown six-run lead in the ninth, Callaway's response was just too reserved for what we had all just witnessed.

Callaway referred to the latest loss that saw the Mets' bullpen implode and Edwin Diaz blowing his sixth blown save of the year as "tough."

The manager has been preaching positivity since he was hired in 2017. However, Callaway has remained too calm and protective of his players after the numerous devastating losses his team, and fans, have suffered through.

The Mets currently sit 4.5 games out of a wild card spot with less than a month to play. They can't afford to lose games where they're holding a 10-4 lead in the ninth.

Mets fans are a passionate group that want their team to show the same passion they do. That's why former manager Terry Collins' timely fiery outbursts helped make him a fan favorite.

It's not all Callaway's fault that his bullpen has been awful for most of the year. That being said, Callaway needs to hold his players accountable in times like these. Aftere all, the bullpen could easily be the biggest reason why the Mets potentially miss the playoffs.

Nobody wants Callaway to throw any player under the bus, but there needs to be a more passionate response after the worst loss we've seen all season.
