At a time when most teams across professional sports are embracing analytics, New York Mets manager Mickey Callaway made it clear that much of his decision-making goes against the data.

Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Callaway indicated that he rarely uses the increasingly popular data and instead more often makes his own decisions.

If 85 percent of Callaway’s decisions this season have gone against analytics, it explains why the Mets are outside of the playoff hunt. New York’s skipper continues to rely on closer Edwin Diaz in the most critical situations despite holding a 5.60 ERA this season with a 1.47 WHIP and five blown saves.

NFL suspends Browns WR Antonio Callaway four games

NFL suspends Browns WR Antonio Callaway four games The NFL has suspended second-year wide receiver Antonio Callaway four games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, per NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport. Sources: #Browns WR Antonio Callaway is being suspended 4 games for a violation of the NFL’s substance abuse policy. He had been appealing this ruling. This may party explain why he’s been running with the reserves. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 9, 2019 This suspension seems to stem from Callaway receiving a citation for marijuana possession prior to his rookie season. Callaway, 22, was a fourth-round pick of the Browns last year after having multiple off-field incidents as a member of the Florida Gators.

As The Eagle-Tribune‘s Chris Mason points out, perhaps Callaway needs to change his tune if he wants to experience success. The Los Angeles Dodgers, Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox embrace analytics and factor them into their in-game decisions on a regular basis, they are also the only three teams to appear in the World Series in the past two years.

Callaway’s contradiction in his quote about going against analytics most of the time while also talking about how things should be equal further exposes New York’s issues.

There’s nothing wrong with a manager trusting his players in certain situations, but if Callaway continues to ignore proven data 85 percent of the time than he might become the next statistic of managers to be fired.

Castellanos exposes flaws of analytics in Cubs' deadline coup.
Cubs outfielder Nick Castellanos, an impending free agent, has had the greatest impact of any player traded at the July 31 trade deadline. “When I got traded to the Cubs,’’ Castellanos said, “it was like I was called up to the big leagues. I’m waking up excited to compete every day playing for something. “It sucks when you’re 28 games out, and its June 4. There’s no way around that." The feeling, the Cubs and their rabid fanbase, is mutual.
