Mets reportedly unlikely to bring back Terry Collins after season
The New York Mets may be closing the book on the Terry Collins era after a highly disappointing 2017 campaign.
Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reported on Thursday that the Mets seem unlikely to retain Collins beyond this season.
The 68-year-old Collins has been manager of the team for the last seven seasons. He led them to a division title and the NL pennant in 2015 followed by a Wild Card berth in 2016. But the Mets are now just 55-71 in a year where expectations were just as high, and Collins’ contract is up after the season.
Of course, Collins is also the oldest manager in the MLB right now and had previously hinted at the possibility of retirement after 2017. Thus, it sounds like a parting of ways may inevitably be coming from one side or the other.
