Vargas then got into a shouting match with the reporter , over a staredown, and said at one point: "Ill knock you the f*** out, bro." The nature of Sunday's loss likely had Callaway , Vargas and others on edge. The Mets led 3-2 heading into the eighth inning before Javier Baez hit a three-run home run off

The New York Mets collapsed and blew a late lead against the Chicago Cubs on Sunday, and tensions boiled over in the clubhouse afterward.

With one out in the bottom of the eighth and the Mets up 3-2, the Cubs put two men on with Javy Baez coming to the plate. Reliever Seth Lugo was left in to face him and gave up a three-run home run that ultimately proved decisive as Chicago salvaged a split of the four-game series.

After the defeat, Callaway and starting pitcher Jason Vargas took offense to something said by a reporter, and things got heated.

Earlier, Callaway had sparred with a different reporter over questions regarding his usage of closer Edwin Diaz.

It certainly appears that frustrations have completely boiled over for the 37-41 Mets. The initial questioning, at least, was completely legitimate, and Callaway’s terse response was unwarranted. It’s unclear what was said to spark the major incident, but it’s a terrible look for the Mets. The manager had already been on the hot seat with some observers with a possible interest in the job being critical of what’s happening there, and this won’t help.
