New York Mets: Mickey Callaway won’t ‘dry hump’ his pitchers (Video)

New York Mets manager Mickey Callaway loves his team but he won’t be dry humping his pitchers.

During his introductory press conference New York Mets manager Mickey Callaway said that he was going to love everyone on the team. However, it seems that he loves his pitchers more than anyone else.

Recently he said that the Mets pitchers are the best group of arms that he’s ever seen. Noah Syndergaard then showed Callaway some love back by tweeting, “you had me at hello.” On Wednesday, the Mets manager talked about what he won’t be doing with his bullpen.

“Dry humping guys is something I feel strongly about,” Callaway said, per Mike Puma of the New York Post.

Wait just a second. Mickey, are you saying that you want to get intimate with your pitchers? You should probably get your mind out of the gutter and back on the ball field where it belongs.

Apparently Callaway isn’t talking about what you’re thinking since dry humping a pitcher means that you have them start warming up, then sit down and then warm up again, according to Bill Baer of Hardball Talk. Phew! Callaway wasn’t talking about anything sexual. My apologies, Mickey, but you have to admit, it did sound pretty bad.

Dry humping can be a problem for pitchers since they could throw a full workload prior to even entering a game. It can also increase the likelihood that a pitcher will become injured.

“That’s a lot of wear and tear that is endless and if I haven’t prepared the right way, that will happen. I have to make a decision with good timing so the game doesn’t speed up on us and we don’t have somebody ready,” Callaway said.

So the good news (in both ways) is that Callaway won’t be dry humping his pitchers since he’s against it. Now let’s hope that the Mets pitchers can show Callaway some love by helping the team win some games this season.
