John Harper of the Daily News, puts up a strong case for why the Mets should bring back Terry Collins as manager of the team after this season.
The thrust of his argument is that Collins was never given a true chance to show what he can do with a team that was at worst a .500 team and at best a legitimate contender.
Despite arguing about Collins’ in-game decision-making he writes, the criticism of Collins is getting louder because of the losing, which is more on the GM and the players than it is on him.
Meanwhile, Sandy Alderson continues to give Collins his full support and calls it a non-issue.
During an interview with Mike Francesa a week ago, Alderson told him that the performance of the team is on him, not Terry or the coaching staff.
Like it or not, it looks like Collins has a better than 50/50 chance of returning as manager next season. That would be a terrible move in my opinion, but it is what it is.
