Is Terry Collins a lame duck manager?

Terry Collins has been the Mets manager for just two seasons but his job may be in jeopardy. It is uncommon for any manager that isn’t on the hot seat or about to retire to only have one year left on his deal. In September of 2011 the Mets made sure to add a year to Terry’s contract to make sure he didn’t enter 2012 as a lame duck manager. They didn’t do the same this September instead he enters 2013 on the final year of his contract.

The Mets have been under .500 in Collins’ two seasons as manager including a 74 win campaign in 2012. It really hasn’t been Terry or GM Sandy Alderson’s fault. The team has lowered payroll every year with the two at the helm by request of ownership. Collins shouldn’t be going into the season as a lame-duck manager. He has worked very hard to make this team competitive at least in first halves and he shouldn’t be blamed if the team gets off to a rough start if the team doesn’t get more talented players this offseason.
