    Callaway will be a huge help in relating to the young Mets pitchers and hopefully working with them and keeping them healthy. However, something still needs to be addressed in the Mets system and how they handle young pitchers in the minors, because all of the injury struggles can't be wholly attributed to the major league club.

    Mets have generally had well-respected pitching coaches in the minors (Viola, Glenn Abbott, etc). Warthan seemed to liked by the MLB staff. Syndergaard in particular has spoken up how much he liked working with Warthen.

    It will be interesting to see who Callaway selects as his PC.

    Interesting how arguably the best two pitchers in the game have the same initials.

    Pitches getting hurt is part of the game. The Mets since Sandy took over have babied the Mets more than I years past and that has not help them health wise, but it does seem that up and down their system many of their best arms get hurt as three of their best pitching prospects have gone down the last couple of years.

    Warthen was a guy that got many of their young guys to do better once they got here, but am very curious to see what a pitching coach does as a manager.

    Does he come in with his philosophy now and bring his own PC or do the Mets hire somebody else?

    I had a chat with a former team physician for the Mets this morning and this topic came up. He said that Thor and Harvey have been abused by the Mets front office and that he hopes that Callaway will bring some sanity into the off-season workouts.

    Dr. James Nepola. He's now a shoulder specialist at the University of Iowa hospital. He was not the chief physician.
