Robin Ventura reportedly candidate to replace Terry Collins as Mets manager

Robin Ventura may soon be finding his way back to the top step of the dugout.

According to a report by Mike Puma of the New York Post on Tuesday, Ventura is a candidate to replace Terry Collins as the manager of the New York Mets. Puma also mentions Alex Cora and Kevin Long as “persons of interest” for the job as well as Bob Geren and Chip Hale.

The 68-year-old Collins’ contract is up after the season, and he is not expected to return, especially after this disastrous 2017 campaign that currently has the Mets at 67-90. As for Ventura, he previously managed the Chicago White Sox from 2012 until his resignation in 2016, compiling a record of 375-435 (.463) and presiding over just one winning season. He also played for the Mets from 1999 to 2001, so there is at least some familiarity with the organization here.
