Mets reportedly open to signing Joe Girardi
The Mets may look across town to fill their void at manager following Terry Collins’ decision to step down after seven seasons.
After taking over prior to the 2011 season, Collins led the Mets to a 551-583 record and two postseason appearances, including a trip to the World Series in 2015. However, after a disappointing season in 2017, Collins resigned.
As the Mets continue their search for a replacement, the New York Post reports they could turn their attention to Joe Girardi if he does not remain with the Yankees.
Girardi is in the last year of his contract with the Yankees and has not yet been offered an extension. When speaking about his future, Girardi recently said “whatever happens, happens.”
Since taking over as manager of the Yankees, Girardi has led the team to a 910-710 record and six playoff appearances in ten seasons, including a World Series victory in 2009.
