According to various media outlets, the Mets are set to bring back Terry Collins on a two year extension with a club option for 2016. Collins has a 224-260 record in three seasons as the New York Mets manager.

Again this was expected, as the Mets like Collins and Sandy Alderson wanted a manager where he would remain with full control in the organization, so bringing in a big name manager was never really a consideration here.

I thought Collins did an outstanding job deflecting attention from his own contract situation this year. Not a ton of managers are able to handle being on the last year of their deal.

This is only a two year extension and the Mets are expected to have some expectations next year so if they stumble out of the gate, it’s possible that Collins could go on the hot seat although that is just my own speculation.

Collins got this team 73 wins despite losing all but three players,(Murphy, Hawkins, Gee) to injuries, demotions and a few releases this season. Collins did a nice job but the spotlight now goes fully on him as the Mets start to give him some offensive weapons this offseason.
