Terry Collins delivers low blow to ‘puppy dog’ Jay Horwitz
New York Mets manager Terry Collins delivered a cheap shot at veteran team PR director Jay Horwitz during his postgame media session on Wednesday.
Collins was not going to address star pitcher Noah Syndergaard leaving Wednesday’s 4-3 win over the Royals with an elbow injury until Horwitz apparently made a request for him to do so. Collins reacted negatively to the suggestion and then mocked the media relations VP by calling him a “puppy dog.”
“The puppy dog wants you guys to know that Noah Syndergaard’s seeing the doctor,” Collins said. “His elbow flared up on him. That’s why I took him out of the game.”

There’s not much to say other than that was a true jerk move by Collins. There was no need to name call in that situation. He owes Horwitz an apology.
