Report: Mets ‘doubtful’ to consider Terry Collins for manager

Terry Collins Mets

The New York Mets need a new manager after getting rid of Carlos Beltran on Thursday due to his involvement in the Houston Astros cheating scandal. One manager who is available and has proven to be successful managing the Mets is Terry Collins. But it doesn’t sound like the team is keen to bring him back.

The New York Post’s Mike Puma reports it’s “doubtful” Collins would be considered for manager.

At least one player told Puma that he hoped Collins would get rehired by the team.

Collins managed the Mets from 2011-2017. They had two winning seasons under him in seven years, made the playoffs both years, and even a World Series appearance in 2015. As recently as a few years ago, the relationship between Collins and the Mets was described as “broken.” Have things changed enough since? We doubt it. But the bigger issue is likely that the Mets have a new person in charge, Brodie Van Wagenen, who probably wants a new person rather than an old face.
