How Collins Views Wilmer Flores

The following transcript is courtesy of Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. It’s a conversation between reporters and Terry Collins at Citi Field regarding Wilmer Flores. Reporter: ”When you take a look at Wilmer Flores, when he was up here in May, when he played in five consecutive games, he hit. When he plays every other game he doesn’t hit. Is now the time to see what Flores...

Lagares’ Head First Slide Didn’t Sit Well With Collins

During Sunday’s game at Miller Park, in the eighth inning, Juan Lagares was trying to beat out a ground ball to shortstop, when he decided to slide head first into the first base bag. Lagares was out on the play; a decision that Terry Collins was not too please about. “Everybody said it — I know he doesn’t read the newspaper very much — but anybody who’s been hurt in...

Jacob deGrom: Mets 2014 Rookie of The Year?

Today’s buzz is all about Jacob deGrom, and thanks to manager Terry Collins, the question becomes can the 25-year old righthander come from behind and cop this year’s Rookie of the Year award. “He’s... [[ This is a content summary only. Visit my website for full links, other content, and more! ]]

DeGrom Will Remain In The Rotation

Right-hander Jacob deGrom will not be heading to the bullpen after the All star break as manager Terry Collins suggested on Saturday. “We’re not going to take Jacob deGrom out of the rotation,” Collins said after the game on Sunday. “I say that now, but we might look up in a month where he is starting to run out of gas a little bit, where we have to make a decision. He...

Mets Minors: Wilmer Flores finds his power stroke

I was asked over the weekend, “Should the Mets fire Terry Collins?”  My answer, “Yes.” My reason is not what most people might say.  Collins is guilty of one solitary cardinal sin, in my eyes.  He insisted on playing Ruben Tejada over Wilmer Flores.  “But Flores wasn’t hitting!” Yes, as a pinch hitter/spot starter, he was hitting .225 which isn’t great.  Tejada...

Dueling Philosophies: Collins Says Mets Won’t Give Up Pieces To Help Other Teams

Sometimes I wonder if Terry Collins and the front office are on the same page. More often than not, it seems the Mets skipper operates in his own parallel universe doing his own thing, while the rest of the organization carries on without him in lockstep with Sandy Alderson’s agenda and plan for the future. It’s amazing to me that Collins was extended by Alderson last offseason...

What could Terry Collins do differently?

The Mets are now ten games out of first place as they begin an 11 game home stand that leads into the All-Star break.  The last road trip through Pittsburgh and Atlanta was a “gut-punch” to a team that was striving so hard to get over a trend of losing close games.  The Mets lost six of seven, by a total of eleven runs, continuing their ineptness at situational hitting thus...

Collins’ Hot-Hand Mentality Is Sending Mixed Messages To His Players

It was interesting to hear Gary Apple and Bobby Ojeda discuss one of the things  I wrote about over the weekend, which was how this six-outfielder configuration was doomed to failure. Apple leads it off asking Ojeda, “We have to talk about Chris Young who suddenly got hot and had that two home run game and then followed it up with another home run game and then Terry Collins had...

Should Mets Manager Terry Collins Be On The Hot Seat?
